The track could be a bit wider, but I got use to it.

The controls are a bit wonky, but that add fun to the game, nice work!

Really enjoyed the atmosphere of this game - kind of zoned out, so I lost count of how many laps I did. Best time of 15.92 - not sure if that's good or not. A ghost replay would be perfect for this kind of game, and maybe something to tell you the number of laps you've done & average lap time.

Nice graphics and sounds but too short/repetitive. Good work!

I like the voices for the racers, and the racing controls themselves seem responsive and fluid. It's a quick setup, but very shortlived. It needed more levels, more incentive to keep playing perhaps. I guess there is the timer to try and beat your best time, and switching between the racers to hear their voices was somewhat amusing for a bit. The racing portraits don't really fit in with the 3D graphics, but I like the colours of the overall stage itself.

Great game! Love the physics on the craft, and that you have different drivers/ships. As has been suggested ghost replay of your best lap would be an amazing addition.

Simple and well built racer, the vehicles are a bit slippery but easy to understand. I like the graphics as well.

Also for some reason my Avast Antivirus thought the executable was suspicious, so I couldn't run the program for a day, it came back fine nonetheless.

A great little racing game. I would really like to race against other players. But overall a well done game.

Acceptable game, but bonus points for having a guy called Henk.

Cool, I feel like this would be a really solid base for a bigger game - the obvious thing missing I think is racing other people, but I'm sure that AI would be hard to program. Anyway, very solid work!

This has a very nice atmosphere and albeit being a bit short it has solid gameplay. I liked your weird character/ship models!
