by @bluescrn, Made in under 48hrs for Ludum Dare #21
Sorry, there's no sound. (I'm currently looking for a free/cheap/lightweight
sound system that's suitable for little 2D PC projects...)
Please don't rate this game if your computer is too slow to run it! It should

Feel free to copy+paste any useful bits you might find in there...

Main Tools Used:
Visual Studio 2011, C++, DirectX9
Chipmunk (2D Physics engine)
Genetica (generating clouds + rock textures)
Photoshop CS5 (Drawing the bike+biker)
