Tiny Tim's Race World

by pythong - 48 Hour Compo Entry

----------------------------------------

*EDIT* DAMMIT it contains a bug. I added a bugfixed link, which directs directly to appspot to ignonre a security sandbox problem with flash. I didn't know that Flash Builder deactivates the security sandbox per default, so I was in my little own workspace programming world where everything worked until I deployed and this morning a colleague told me, that my game wasn't working. lololol

the old flash link still contains the file, but for real experience, test the fixed version

------------------------------------

Tiny Tim is living on a small world. So small. Soooooo small. And there's nothing to do! Except that he bought himself a car not too long ago, so he spends his time washing it and cleaning it and washing and cleaning .....

BOOOOOOOOOOOOORIIIIIIIIIING!!!!!!

So he decided to make a race on his planet! And he invited many many many people he didn't even know!


-------------------------------------------------------

You are playing Tim in his yellow car. When you are online, you should get data of other players, as well as the current highscores

There isn't even more to say, except that since your planet is soooo tiny, one lap of the race also flies by like nothing. The only thing that could stop you is your little dog named Doggy because he likes to sit on the street.

So: Click with your mouse or press space to jump. Your car must have been bought from a different planet as it is so light that it can jump high into the air. Even twice! (or maybe you're just strong enough that a fistbump into the air is enough ^^)

have fun everyone!

Nice runner game. The jump is a bit annoying.

Simple but fun, seeing other players' data is a great motivator for one more go to try and get a bit further!

Nice, a bit too simple for my liking, tho!

Yeah the online data is good idea! Though each time I played, there were some cars that just didn't jump at all, and yet they never crashed! D=

Yeah the other cars are distracting by jumping so often and also not getting hit by the dog when they don't jump at the right time.

i have to admit, it's actually a bug in sorting why the other cars don't jump :D. they are assigned to a jump, just way too late because the sorting is wrong

Unfortunately this took a lot of retries to load for me =/ a quick and simple game, and the users data was good motivation. Nice job!

This game gets really scary.

I enjoyed it. Can't believe I didn't get on the high scores!

Nice idea with the other players ghosts. Only one of them seemed to actually jump though.

Made 5th!

Too bad there isn't more to do than click but it's a nice little game. I appreciate the extra polish out of the game proper (into, nice menu, how to page..)

Not bad, enjoyed it for a while before simply trying to stay in the air for as long as possible! Couple of thoughts:
- The instructions page says you're the yellow car, I then subsequently had no idea which car I was since there were around 4 yellow cars in the race!
- As Tifu has mentioned, some cars don't jump and yet don't crash either, this lead to my first crash since I decided to see if the same rules applied to me. :-)

Very simple gameplay but it works well. Adding the data of other players is a nice idea.
After seeing the start menu I expected something 3-dimensional on a sphere :(.

Sometimes less is more, and I think that's true here. The minimal controls are refreshing, and the rhythm and simple soundtrack are quite hypnotic! The addition of high scores is good (post-compo?). More variety in obstacles would be welcome though

Great humor! I smiled at every text I read :)
Gameplay was fun and challenging.

Seeing other people's data was cool, but a lot of times other players wouldn't even jump and they'd still survive some hearty dog contact. I imagine there's some kinda bug with it, but I'm still quite impressed that you got that feature in the game on such a time limit. This kinda asynchronous, cumulative multiplayer is a great idea for LD :).

Fun, after 100 or so laps everything was a blur and it became a game of luck, but still fun.
