Little Snow World

by rsergiu2003 - Compo Entry

And "YES" it's Supposed to be hard to drive :) it's on ice after all....

For the ones who prefer a "3rd person" version of the game, I also created one : but this does not fit the "one screen: theme so good...

Drive the "Awesome Mobile" trough the obstacles and collect all the gifts as fast as possible.

Use the arrow keys to steer and accelerate/brake, try to avoid the obstacles and get the best time, I got 21.5 seconds, try to beat this !

I created builds for lots of platforms... in case you don't want the universal build for you os you can download the x86 or 64 version, also I created a zip with the web build in case you want to download the web version.

Also repository available with the future changes ;)

Great little car game. I absolutely love the graphics. Controlling the car was a bit tough, I was constantly crashing as soon as I tried to pick up speed.

Really like the mood and the graphism.
But I keep crashing on every wall...
(the car speed up quickly and the road are really tiny.

This looks great and runs really well. The car is hard to control but that's the challenge of the game. I don't see how it fits the theme though?

Great graphics man!

The Awesome Mobile sure is awesome! Love the graphics, love the sounds, the handling on the car is a little challenging but that is definitely part of the charm. Great Work!

Nice look and feel, classic arcade style feel.

I love how you drive off the map when crossing the finish line, made the game all the better^^ nice game overall!

maxyan says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 8:33am

Awesome graphics! Maybe not the best camera control.

jepster says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 8:33am

It was fun controlling the car, and the mood of the game is nice and christmas-y.
The sounds were quite annoying though. Might consider turning down the volume a bit.

maxyan says ...

Awesome graphics! Maybe not the best camera control.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 8:34am

Adorable graphics. Narrow passages and somehow easy to miss packages added nicely to the difficulty. Very fun, great job!

Maurogik says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 8:34am

Haha, this is fun, too bad there is only one level, i want moard !

Dec 8, 2014 @ 8:37am

It's a fun little diversion. The car physics are a bit off, but I've never driven on snow, so maybe they're not.

justinooncx says ...

Accurate driving-in-snow simulator.

gillenew says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:53am

hey very nice :D

rjhunter says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:55am

Lovely cheerful graphics.

I found it hard to get around the track but I guess that's the point, right? :-)

LittleThor says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:04am

Nice work! I like the controls : they are hard to master but quite fun to play.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:36am

Really nice. Nothing new but really well executed.

indigofiz says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:46am

2bumpy4me. But the sfx sets the mood really well, and the graphics are neat. So, kudos.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:55am

Pretty nice racing game! I love the ending when you jump off a cliff))

GreenyUk says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 12:13pm

Awesome game. Very arcadey. I love how the car handles, very sharp. The camera makes depth perception a little tricky when at the other side of the map, and a backing track wouldn't have gone amiss, but great job. One of my favorites so far.

PERECil says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 12:17pm

This game reminds me a bit of micro machines. Lovely!

Blue screen for me( both on iframe and web link

Bezza says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 1:03pm

Great game, really good graphics. Controls where a bit difficult but very fun none the less!

MaesK says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 1:42pm

Nice little game! Not many car games are seen here, and that may explain my lack of skill, crashing against anything :D

I like how entering the goal makes de car fall but heeey you get saved and placed back in the start, haha.

woodecker says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 2:02pm

Nice graphics and fun to play, but sometimes confusing view. I would use a more top-down view.

caporaltito says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 2:33pm

The graphics are amazing! The controls are quite bad but it reminds of those little micromachines games.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:29pm

Awesome visuals and a funny idea. Works very well, it just doesn't quite feel like an actual game to be honest - more like participating in a study on weird car controls. :P

Ossi says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 7:05pm

Great game! Neat art style, good use of the theme, and pretty hilarious bumping around the track! I managed to get all the pickups and finish the race in 26.8 seconds! Very fun, well done!

johnbrynte says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:27pm

I actually think the controls are not too bad, it's more the collision physics that gets me. With a bit nicer physics this might well have been crazy fun. Great work!

jfreax says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:32am

A racing game! Great. Cool graphics and nice sound. Unfortunately controlling the car is very difficult.

But hey, the theme/mood is super. Overall a fun little game :)

MintArcade says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:36am

Very nice. Great mechanics.

uvwar says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:22am

I almost want the car to steer worse so I'm spinning out around corners or at least bumping around instead of just bumping INTO things which stops me dead. The car reminded me of Penny Racers for the N64.

Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:38am

The game was quite enjoyable to play but that default Unity3d blue background got on my nerves.

error031 says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:00am

Nice and simple car game, loved the graphics, but controlling the car was sometimes a problem.

peejaygee says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:45am

Was actually an enjoyable little game

Dec 9, 2014 @ 3:02am

Well done! Great job executing the them very straight forward concept, controls work well

stjahns says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 3:41am

Nice art!

Trixton says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 3:43am

Cool, nice game! I think it would be better with a lower top speed.

Anshul Goyal says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 4:17am

Nice! I think I collided in every corner of the map. My fastest is probably everybody's slowest. I like how you have to jump of the map to finish the level. I was actually thinking of doing it somehow and there you go. Great little game.

Interface says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 4:35am

Haha, great entry. Difficult controls, they remind me a bit of this old car racer game that I'm totally blanking out on. Anyway, great job.

cmdr says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 5:44am

Fun little game. I wish the tracks were a little wider though...I kept bumping on the rocks. Nice idea though. :D

hazzahazzam says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 5:54am

I love car games, this was a little hard to control, but still fun nonetheless.

sirikan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:19am

Great little game. Nice work using 3d :).

calavera says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 7:26am

Sorta fits the theme?.. minus points for clearly fitting the snowman theme much better, which is dubious o_O

Drtizzle says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 9:24am

Great graphics! But the camera angle is a bit weird so you can't really see the depth very well.
This looks very polished, the gameplay and level design need a bit more work though :)

rsergiu2003 says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 10:02am

Hey, thanks for the comments, I really appreciate it :D. Here are some notes :

- it's supposed to be hard to drive
- yes the map is a bit small... to fit the one screen
- the snow man was a last minute addition... kind of a fail as has lots of polys and does not look very good...I left it there never the less..

Diamonde says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 10:33am

What a glorious game! I like the gameplay alot, but most I enjoyed the audio. :)

Kabukky says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 10:51am

Fun tittle game. I especially like the graphics. The idle sound is annoying though ;)

Bernhard says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:36pm

Sweet look and I think this totally fits the theme. No moving camera just a little panning.
Took me 68.48792 seconds (yes I'm sure every last digit of the timer is important (-:)

Havi says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 4:08pm

Great game and nice graphics!

Skipi says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 8:40pm

Not quite sure it fits the theme, but it's a nice game regardless.

trykondev says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 9:45pm

Wow, the graphics and visual polish in this game are incredible. The controls are tough but once you get used to them they're actually pretty natural for this game. Nice work!

Dec 10, 2014 @ 12:14am

Cute little car game with very fluid controls. Love the colorful art and winter theme!

Crosstales says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 1:50am

Very nice graphics! I had difficulty with the controls though :)

Grindstorm says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 2:19am

lol it was funny when I fell off the plane. Nice minigame.

Felladrin says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 3:28am

Good! Nice sounds, gameplay and graphics!

FerraWare says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 3:59am

Nice little game, cool sounds and graphics. I found the controls pretty responsive, but I'd have loved the radioactive barrels to explode :P

Dec 10, 2014 @ 7:20am

Pretty good look and feel, controlling the car at first glance was tricky, but then I got used to it. :)
My record is 33.66586 seconds :D

t4u says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 8:06am

Terrible audio. Ok Graphics. Not enough fun to make me wanna play it for longer time.

ruerob says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 8:53am

Somehow this game reminds me of micro machines. I loved micro machines. if the world where a little bigger it would be really fun. or if there where more levels.

SoulGame says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 10:05am

I do like the driving and the cartoon style, it gives nice sensations, but I'm not sure the current level design (or circuit design should I say) is honoring the nice driving mechanic. PS : The motor sound is hurting my ears :D

rzuf says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 10:53am

You win the game by falling off the screen - awesome. :D

Threstle says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 3:30pm

Great visuals, and the car is nice to drive ! I'm not really seeing the link with the theme although, and I think there should be a win screen once you collected all the gifts. ;)

Dec 10, 2014 @ 4:27pm

Nice little game! It was fun to play, good job!

Dec 10, 2014 @ 6:36pm

Nice game. Controls are hard but the car doesn't slide on the snow and it feel weird, why put snow then?

gene-z says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 9:23pm

Very Good Game,,, Congratulations

Not entirely on theme, but it plays well and looks great.

Dec 12, 2014 @ 11:16am

Great game!Love graphics!good controls also,never had a problem.Keep up!

Dec 12, 2014 @ 4:15pm

I see what you thought with the theme, but it seems like this would fit better under "Entire Game On One Diorama", rather than on one screen. It's pretty cozy tho. :)

dekart says ...
Dec 13, 2014 @ 5:13pm

I like the art and sounds, they add a good mood to the game. However, I see a significant design flaw: car games are about speed, drive, dynamics. In your game speed is an obstacle, it's impossible to reach the goal if you speed up, you continuously hit walls. This is against the natural way such games are made so it spoils all fun.

I strongly suggest you to keep working on this game because it has a great potential and may become a great indie game!
