Ten 2nds

by TehSkull - Jam Entry

This. Is what I got.
I'm happy to have submitted SOMETHING rather than NOTHING.

The idea is here, the graphics are here, the gameplay is lacking. Whatever.

"Egyptian Mafia “The Stoners” kidnaps the family of famous racecar driver “John Jon Johnson” and forces him to take second place to their man and only their man in ten World Series races."

Essentially, come in second place in ten races, with the Yellow Egyptian car in first place. Slow enemy cars down by bumping into their sides or rearending them.

If something goes wrong in the race, you start it over.
When you finish level 10.......nothing happens. :(

Arrow Keys to move

Graphics: IvoryTigress
Programming/Design: TehSkull

Note to self for next time: Do not participate in LD if same weekend as MechaCon.

Eh, nice job, I guess. Good job on creating something, game play was lacking, speedometer did not work and there was no timer. That, and no integration with the theme. 3/10. If you worked on this for like another week or so, I can see a good project! Keep it up!

It's pretty cool, just too basic at the moment. As you said.. gameplay is lacking.

@MrBlade: I beg to differ. It has EVERYTHING to do with the theme. Our interpretations are just different. 2nd place, 10 races. Ten 2nd's. (Helps to read it out loud.) Thanks for the comment regardless.

@jackw899: I have intention to make a Post-LD version of this game, but the best laid plans of mice and men....
Thanks for the comment.

Good basis for a racer! Good idea to do 10-seconds-races, I haven't seen anyone else do them so far :)

Took me a minute to see the theme. But I thought it was hilarious way to do 10 seconds.

something rather than nothing? This is pretty good and reminds me of some of the older games I use to play. Good LD skull, some power ups or cop cars could make this more interesting

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 ( 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.
