How can i access the soundtrack? i love it!


Awesome. I was looking for a nice but simple 2D racing game.


Really excellent! Feels very dangerous with how the world rolls and bends and objects pop out into view so quickly. Looks and sounds just fantastic.


Nice work! Hows dev going


Really solid!

I just wish there were a difficulty curve, either as a setting or as levels or whatever. Back when you first posted it I was unable to place at all. After playing it a bunch, finally I was able to place in first - but there was no gradual working up from 8th to 4th to 2nd to 1st. If think an easy mode could have less severe curves and no cars, and then you could increase those elements for higher difficulties.

Keep up the good work!


Nice work!


Where can I download the PICO-8 cart?


I plan to release the png cartridge when it gets a little closer to "Done". When I'm happy enough with it to put it up on the BBS,  I'll put it up for download here!


Awesome, thank you!


It's now available! :)


This was a really fun little game. I loved the art style and the general gameplay was good. I would definetly reccommend thius if you're wanting to try something that's like the older and simpler days. 


Thanks for playing, I'm glad you liked it! There's currently a bug, where when the opposing racers cross the line, they drop off of the position tracking, which is what causes your position to go up without passing anyone. 
At high speeds, braking is super important to get through the sharper turns without going off-road (which slows you down!)
