Laser Drift

by MrOtton - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Laser Drift is a top down drift car game. Your goal is to reach the finish line as fast as possible without crashing into the walls. Your crashes will be added to your time at the end of the round. The less the score, the better you are.

It's made in Construct 2 by Scirra.

Have fun! :)

Pretty neat laser line drift game. I sux at the controls. but the collision detection reaction is pretty neat. Good job.

Very cool. I could see playing this as a great 2 player game.
(Great mood music.)

The controls are pretty bad, it's pretty much impossible not to hit the walls which seems to be the main goal.

strange physics on moving backward.

This was fun. This is more like piloting a boat, or drifting on ice. I would like tighter steering controls - it's very difficult to drive in a straight line because that requires such a minute key press.

I think, the idea is cool, but the drunken car driving is hard. It doesn't move like a car, more like pushing a dead cow on a frozen pond. But it was okay. ;)

I like the concept of the game and the simplicity of the graphics. Well done!

I crashed 200 times. It's just like real life!

"dead cow on a frozen pond," ha!

I didn't realize the purple box was a finish line, so the first time I played, I went around backwards. That was stupid in retrospect.

This was pretty cool, with appropriate audio, and minimal in the good way.

The control feels almost like a shopping cart. Very funny!

Fun game. Needs tighter controls. Couldn't submit scores. All that aside, I enjoyed it :)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
