Thats a really cool car racing game, there was some small bugs, but still was enjoyable!

Visuals are cool, but controls are a bit messy

What a cool and nice looking game! Great job! There are a few bugs, like when you're too fast, some walls can't hold you from falling. And the controls aren't for beginer players. But I loved the concept. Very nostalgic for those like me who played "HotWheels Beat That" on PlayStation2. Great work!!!

Really cool graphics and music! I love the light effects. Difficult to control in some parts but funny!

I am rubbish at racing games and this was no exception, but I still had a great deal of fun. I love that the car physics really make you feel like a toy car. It made this feel different from your average racer. I did have some issues with wall clipping and the occasional "car flips over for no apparent reason when I hit the brakes" instance, but this didn't really detract from my enjoyment. It mostly just made it feel more ridiculous. Nice work!

Very polished and smooth game. Reminds me of micro machines! only tweak i would make would be closer camera. Also pad controls... ;) Great work!

Awesome challenging game. The blurred effect in the distance gives a sense of scale, what is this technique called it looks like more than just a blur.

Really cool racing game, especially considering it's a compo entry. It's pretty hard to stay on track but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Ignoring some minor bugs I'd say that the biggest flaw this game has is that it doesn't feel like I'm racing in a room since the track covers most of it all the time. Most of the time it feels like I'm racing on a futuristic track inspired by F-zero rather than a toy track.

Would smash my car into the wall again ^^

Cool game, but could do with tweaking the car physics and control a bit, it's a little too easy to spin out or fall off the track.

I did a video of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4WH6nOammI
