by stenol - Jam Entry

The goal of the game is to reach the end line before the coountdown reach 0. You start with 10 seconds but you can pick up power up that add 10 seconds to the timer. Be aware that the red power up remove 10 seconds to your timer. If you crash your car, you'r game over.

W = Accelerate
S = Brake (Cannot go below 100)
A = Move left
D = Move rigt

Have fun :)


If the game doesn't run try the openAL install. That should fix issues.

Takes me back to my many hours of playing spyhunter. Great level design.

I can't seem to pick up the (I guess) time boosts, so I always finish after only 10s.

Picking up time didn't work.

@Kwrky and @Friday. I just updated the game and now the power up pickup is more accurate. Tank you for your feedback :)

The explosion effect is pretty

Heh, that was pretty fun to play. Gets quite difficult further down. Great job!

Didn't work, just didn't start(It doesn't even look like the process started running, or windows doesn't show that process...)

Aug 26, 2013 @ 4:08pm

The time pickups work for me. Overall a nice game, I like the layout of the track.
Would have been a nice touch to rotate the car according to the movement. And I missed music, or at least a sound effect for the car's engine. But still, well done. :)

Crashed immediately on startup. :/

Crashed on startup for me too. Possibly missing some libraries. There wasn't really an error message given.

Crashes for me too..

Aug 26, 2013 @ 6:12pm

Pretty cool. As stated before, cool level design, they do not get boring (although it's a bit frustrating to start a new after you've died).

What language did you use?

stenol says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 6:19pm

@comrad_gremlin I used C# with monogame library

If your game crash, you can try to install OpenAl. Sorry about that :-)

I thought that was really good. My main complaint is that the course could have been longer because I was really getting into it.

As a game of racing games, i can only love it!

I'm afraid I couldn't get it to work on my computer: OpenTK crashes with an 'Array out of bounds' error, which is probably caused by wine. I'll give it another go later on.

Pretty cool game, but it feels pretty slow for a car supposedly driving so fast. If it were, say, a bicycle messenger, the game speed would fit perfectly, also, it would fit the delivery theme the name implies.

Amazing game. I like this a lot. I probably sank five or ten minutes trying to beat it. I am glad you added sound, controls were nice, all around good job. Keep it up, man.

Thepattybeast says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:06pm

Fun game would have been nice if there where more levels or random levels and you could go faster than 200 though

stenol says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:42pm

@Thepattybeast I will continue to work on this game after the competition to add more levels, more power up and more obstacles.

Pretty cool and challenging!

For a vintage game its great, for a todays game I would have liked to have a little more steering and a little more feedback from the game.

Pretty cool! Decent use of time / extension mechanics.

Thank you for the OpenAL install, by the way. I think I had a similar crash the other day when I tried to run a different entry.

This game is well executed. I like how the power ups give an additional 10 seconds, instead of resetting the time to 10 seconds. Good job!

Fun little game!

Cool idea! I wasn't sure what to do at first. The graphics are nice and the idea is good.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 6:26pm

Very fun! It didn't work for me at first, but I ran the installer you linked to and then it worked perfectly. Some music would have been nice, but still very well made.

Made me think of Spy Hunter, always a good thing. :D

It hangs when trying to start. :( Windows 7, 32 bit

@murilo You can try to install OpenAl. :)

Reminds me of Road Fighter! Ah them feels!
Good job on the game. Good art as well, but it could use more work in the innovation department.
Nonetheless, congrats on your game!

Ah! such a good throw back to one of my favorite type of games!

Mekuri says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:49pm

haha, this game really reminds me of my childhood playing those top down car games on my C64. A simple yet fun game. Thanks for the nostalgia trip :-)

Like a River Raid/Spy Hunter game! Fun!

Almax27 says ...
Aug 30, 2013 @ 8:42pm

that would work so well with a old school acceleration fx sound :D

Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:43pm

Neat game, with a compelling level design. Run after run, we finally get to learn the curves, the traps... Good job!

Niavlys says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 10:09am

It has little replay value but it's a nicely designed map. It took me a few tries to realize that the red "10" were actually -10 seconds... Missed some sound, and a more responsive movement, but otherwise it was nicely done. :)

I would've wanted some more depth to the game, possibly random level generation or more levels! Anyway, took me quite a few tries to beat the game - so you did a good job balancing the level!:)

Sep 5, 2013 @ 2:14am

Nice simple little game, needs some more graphics, but its pretty solid. I featured it in my LD27 compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out

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.
