Twister

by lartens - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Got like a minute left so linked to the swf

**update***
just found the edit entry so yeah, the version i had by the upload time doesn't have focus on a few screens when on the web, so start game click the screen then use the arrow keys to accelerate. Didn't get the retry function bug free in time so the game just ends instead.

ok so that was a mess, i forgot when its on the web the movieclips don't have focus, each screen needs to be clicked on before the keyboard event handler picks up the keyboard, sorry, rooky mistake, i also couldn't iron out the restart bugs in time so it just ends and needs a manual restart. I know super lame

I really like the music, but the game play was not what I would call deep.

is it possible to get more than ca 700 points? even if I stay against the right screen border the tornado runs me over :(

thanks for playing, yeah, you can't actually escape, so its not quite to the theme, i've had something like 1400 points though, but i have a responsive bouncy macbook keyboard, there's also nothing in the rules about not using both hands, which seems to yield better results, the points and speed are optimised when there's a key press -> key release -> other key press -> key release.

Um, the controls aren't what I would expect to move a car. Also, I couldn't escape...

The graphics are lovely in their simplicity.

I enjoyed how the car vanished when it turned sideways...
