1) simply use png files with transparent backgrounds... the question has already been asked a few days ago, in this forum.
2)what do you mean by "views" ?
3) search it by yourself. You can add rpg-style functions like giving the player the possibility to upgrade his car, a money system, boosts, weapons etc.

You'd better learn how to use the software before you try to create an original game. There's a bunch of tutorials in the wiki.

Thanks Alot!
What I meant by views was that how can i keep the camera fixed on the car?

Edit: Where can i get some good topdown Road sprites?

Create an event with the condition "always" (under system) and give it the action "scroll to object", then select your player.

You should try to rip the road sprite from an old game.

Still wont work :(
Whenever i reach the edge of the screen, the camera moves. I want it to move b4 it collides with the edge. Same problem occurs when I move back.

Maybe select the attribute "center view on me", in the car properties?

Both suggestions should work fine, but there is a built in function that will keep the camera from scrolling to the edge, and showing anything that's not within the layout.
You can tick unbound scrolling in the layout properties... use at your own risk.
