10Seconds Racer

by orangepascal - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You got 10 seconds to race as far as possible ! Grab nitro's, or time power-ups to increase your distance... try to avoid other traffic ;)

Game was done in only 5 hours, had a very late start, but it's fully playable, sound, "music", and graphics are all there..

lots of idea's for improvements.. but only so much you can do in 5 hours :/

Simple is always good in my book. Great job for 5 hours. The powerups appear a bit too fast for my eyes and I have a hard time collecting them but that's just me :)

Woah. Even for a 48 hour game this would be a real accomplishment. In 5 hours?! Brilliant. I mean...skid marks? You had time for details like that in 5 hours?! Amazing.

That's really awesome, especially given that you made it in only 5 hours. I'd like to see a post-compo version of it.

Like that the time powerup just freeze time instead of adding, gives more of an urgency that way. Great art, sound and polish, especially for only 5 hours.

It's almost annoying you did that in 5 hours. :-) Great Job! Really fun and the feel of the collisions with other cars is spot on. I would play this on my iphone for an embarrassingly long time. I would say it is too hard but for a 10 second game I would say it ramps up perfectly.

Awesome game, simple, fun and very very addictive. It's hard to get the power-ups so I guess I'll have to keep training.

Staggering work considering it was made in five hours. Looks great and controls really well, with a nice degree of polish to everything involved.

Wow that's extremely fun, well done on completing this in such a small timeframe! My highscore was 318.

really love how this voice says "time","nitro","game over" :D
would love an option to mute that background music/noise thing, though ;)

Aug 26, 2013 @ 10:19am

Love it. Simple and fun. I'll be back to play this. I like the graphics, the sound the gameplay, everything. One thing though, does it not save your high score? I couldn't see it if it did. Well done.

Very fun little game. It invokes the "just one more try" syndrome that makes you spend far more time playing than you planned.

@DreamofSleeping : it really needs high-scores, or at least your personal best, but didn't find time to add that .. maybe in a post-compo version

Looks good, it's fun to play and play again. And in 5 hours!

Got 245. Addictive gameplay and nice graphics.

I like this a lot! Very polished and well done. Fun. I tried many games in a row. Good stuff!

It's really cool! I was so happy when I got more than 200 score!! :D
One doubt: is the speed a vector of the direction (x+y)? Or is the vertical speed always the same???

Aug 26, 2013 @ 7:43pm

Really nice work for 5 hours!

Grabbing the powerups was really hard though, they move pretty darn fast.

That's nice game but needs some work on the enemies generation and may be if I have more view to plan where to go :) but for 5 hours that game is amazing :) Good Job as usual ;)

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.
