Running over faceless pedestrians what's not to love? Great graphics. Felt very nice to line up a load of them. I found it easiest to kill them sideways, as the forward and backward movement was SUPER sensitive - I'd crash a lot if I didn't do most of my killing with turning.

Nicely done! Leaderboard is very nice touch. I got 4th I think!

Very fun game, the sound effects made everyone in the room crack up. The acceleration is a bit much and/or the town is fairly crowded. I would have loved to see a race-track style map or similar. Great work!

It was pretty enjoyable to run over a bunch of people at once. I just wish the backwards and forwards movement was less sensitive, and the turning was more sensitive.

The game looks good and plays nice. I did have some problems where the vehicle was hard to handle and flew over the pedestrians.

Very fun game. Maybe less sensibility could be better. Thank you ++

First off, the audio was so funny, loved it.

Gameplay was consistent and working well. My only criticism would be that reversing was a bit too sensitive.

I noticed a bug on the main screen where if you press ESC the game pauses and has strange effects. Pausing should probably only be available while in game.

DAMN THAT'S GREAT!
After a lot of tries I reached the scoreboard (Nikteddy)!
Nice graphic, Great gameplay, smooth and enjoyable!
One of the best so far, Well done!

Little tip: not alway record on the scoreboard online.. is a little too slow :/

Enjoyed the game, good job. Maybe a little hard to control, but I guess thats part of the game. Extra points for ranking!

Nice game. Cool idea with the leader board. Some fast paced music would have been nice I think.

Fun game with nice graphics and physics. I did find the controls a bit unforgiving and I wasn't very good at avoiding buildings (the very fast reverse gear tripped me up a lot). Would have been nice to have a bit more control of the hovercraft, and could be a lot of fund to do things like powerslide through a huge crowd.

Yay, I got on the scoreboard! Very fun! The controls on the vehicle felt very smooth, SFX were fun and worked well with the game. I can definitely see this being expanded with upgrades, so that you can spend points on weapons etc. Music would be nice too. Good job!

It's a little bit hard to make curves, but it's a really fun idea! The models are pretty cool and different too. It's a very nice project, congratulations!

Reminds me Carmaggedon. It would be better to have some life, to not be killed at each hit. It just lack maybe of a road to drive.
Still fun with the ragdoll physics.

Very pleasing visuals =)
Would've liked to have some way of making sharper turns though. Felt really satisfying to crash into people ^^

Pretty funny one :-) I liked the graphics and animations.
I think there are too many houses, I kept crashing on them all the time. It might be funnier with a lot of empty space to gain speed and send pedestrians to space!
Anyway, great work!

Nice game, but its really easy to die just by looking at the backwards button, that could be fixed

Sep 3, 2015 @ 8:32pm

Liked the highscore feature! Is nice to be able to compete

Turns out hovercrafts are not very practical in urban environments...

The online scoreboard is great addition btw.

hard to control but it feels nice. The Visuals are ok because there is no real style but great done ahhhh.

Cool game! I included it in part 25 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/OjNOJwfYtGQ

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
