Could i grab some opinions on the video please? Does it work at that length? Is it too long? Does it try and cover too much? Does it make you want more? etc etc. Thanks

I only watched the first minute (again) and I wasn't very excited (again). You don't show more than a few seconds of racing at a time so we don't get much of a sense of the "tracks". Because of the music, we don't get to hear sound effects. The size of the video is very small, which is odd. To be frank, the game itself looks OK but not great - which could be why so far there have been 145 views of this thread but mine is the first reply. Sorry to be negative! The idea for the game is clever but my suspicion is that the execution may not be hot enough for this to sell too well. But others may not agree ...

@towell, thanks for the feedback. I think promo vids shouldnt show too much, it is supposed to be just glimpses, not a 'walk through' of the tracks. I dont think i've ever seen a promo vid where they show you lots, even the big companies dont show much on there videos! Most of theirs are filled up with cut scenes and not actual game footage. I see what you're saying about having the music over the top but again i point out that most videos have a music track over them, after all its an advertising feature i guess, not a demo! Re: the size, yes maybe i do need to make the actual content of the video bigger and i may look into this at some point. As for the gameplay itself, im a one man band and im very proud of it, i find it fun and challenging and still has me coming back with the 'just one more go' factor and after the developing and testing, i should be sick of it by now. ha. It'll be a $0.99 title and its certainly worth that! At the end of the day, thank you for your feedback, it is greatly appreciated and its certainly food for thought with your comments.

Oh and as for the 145 views and 1 reply, theres plenty of threads out there with 5000 views and under 50 replies, so going by that logic, not too bad i guess. haha.

Again though, i do appreciate you taking the time to reply

It looks simplistic and it's a bit hard to make out what you're racing in (office chair I presume?) but it looks mildly amusing at least. Would have been an instant sell if it included a clumsy parkour course, though.

@nikhsterboi, since the video i have made the game play quicker but if it went too far you would have no chance to manoeuvre round oncoming obstacles
