ahh I'm loving Construct! Downloaded yesterday, did the top down shooter tutorial and I'm hooked!

Two of my favorite top-down racers were Micro Machines and Turbosliders, so I'm aiming to combine the two somehow, there's still lots left to do (timer, better graphics etc).. but here's my little racer!

Controls are qa (forward/break) op (left/right).

The controls are pretty terrible to be honest, who will want to drive with q,a,o and p?

people will want to use the arrow keys.

Feels nice! I also was a huge fan of Micro Machines :) I agree with smitchell though the controls are unusual

Thanks for the feedback! The controls were just my personal preference :) I've added cursor keys as well, and collision in the tunnel.

Thanks Genki :)

I've start from scratch, but I think I've put too many of the same sprite in as I'm getting lag spikes but it works fairly well. Thanks to Ubivis for his lap code!

Had to put a delay before Layout 2 loads, something wrong with my timer.

Anyway here it is :) http://slowdown.co.uk/microrace/

Hi qster,

Your game look really cool. It reminds me a game I had on my Super Nintendo when I was a kid. But I think the car goes to fast when you are on the road. that is why I can't help but crash every 3 seconds! I think another reason is because I suck :)

Hey qster

I was amazed about the drifting this car can do.
I'd like to share a thought.

A:
A drift/race button would be nice.
So when people push a handbrake button, the game changes steering modes to drifting, enabling the player to drift even more.
Then when the player releases the handbrake button the car enters race steering mode.
Les sharp turns that is.
The player then can can go faster in race mode without crashing by simply "wanting" to steer slightly.

B:
Zooming in when nearing a curve, so the player can enjoy the drift even more.
Zooming out when on straight, so the player can look further ahead and try to go as fast as he can!

Check the Zoom link and the capx re-posted by Kyatric if u like.
Its awesome.Savvy0012012-03-11 01:20:28
