Dummy Kart Racing DX

by riktothepast - Jam Entry

Try to clear the 4 check points; every time you wreck a car, a new one is spawned but the old one remains on the screen.

Turn your car with arrow keys or A, D.
Slow down with Space or S (brakes only work for a couple of seconds).

Interesting take on how to drive a car, I was basically slowing down most of the time :) Also those cars in the way can become really hard to pass! What's next? Scoreboard? Ennemies? Love the graphics, it's a good start for a bigger car game!

Hi there. Found car impossible to control. Got round first corner once in about 20 attempts, probably easier for people with a reaction time... Like the skid sound, the graphics and the presentation. Control scheme not so much.

The controls for the car are very difficult, but that's just part of the fun!

Cool idea but incredibly hard. It gets even harder when you have more cars stopped in the same spot!

This is one of the most weird racing game I have ever played, laugh out loudly! This is not a negative comment, I like it a lot. I think you intend to make people try a perfect drifting at each corner, but the fact is that, although you have a constraint for the brake, you may hit the brake without holding it, which kinda makes your "brake cant work long" mechanism fail.

Overall a great job!

So I for fun just made the cars run without controlling them for a while and then this happen: Cars went flying and I laughed :D Great little game!

It's very funny that when you die the cars stay in the track so when you pile them you can't go through!Interesting idea and it would be much greater if you could implemented it somehow as the basic mechanic!
Cool work overall!

This will be more fun with proper music or effect :)
Your brakes work for a few second but its sound never stop, it confuse me a little.

It was kind of difficult to control, but after a while it gets addictive. I managed to reach the last checkpoint with a lot of patience and using a lot the brakes. Good job :D

Innovative idea. The driving works but I feel like losing because of touching the wall a little is a bit harsh. Makes you want to break a bit too often. Otherwise I think it could be great with more time, good job!

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
