Very nice, I like that the power-ups/ speed act as shields for when you take damage, as opposed to losing immediately. Great game!
Would appreciate it if you gave my entry a go :D

The representation of the theme is quite interesting and has a lot of potentials. I liked that sometimes the player has to choose between picking a power-up or a speed buster depending on the situation of each vehicle. I've thought that both vehicles were linked (maybe past and future, or two parallel dimensions), which could be an intriguing story.

The visual style and sound effects could be better, at the moment are kind of funny, especially the speed buster.

On my first two tries I didn't understand how the acceleration worked, maybe it should be explicit in the game's description.

If you could comment and rate our game, we would appreciate it.

We actually did consider some minor plot hooks, but didn't really stick to anything and didn't implement anything like that either way

Something like alternate realities where one person has two very different jobs in a post-apocalyptic world was kinda what we were going for

Awesome combination. Does this have an end or is endless?

Developer (1 edit)

In theory it is endless, but because it has an exponential difficulty growth, it has a practical end. See how high of a score you can get!

But no bosses or endings or anything, just pure arcade style.

Unable to play please help!!

Developer

Oh no! What version, or if web, what browser are you using?

Submitted(+1)

I can't launch it :(. I'd like to try it.

Developer

Looks like a known issue in Godot apparently... I've uploaded a version with the Particles all invisible so it SHOULD run now. Thanks for the interest!

Thanks! I appreciate your trying. I'll try to fix this but I'm having all sorts of issues with the web version :(

If I do fix it, I'll put up a new upload (and mention that it's technically after the contest deadline!)

Developer

If you'd like to try again, I think it should be working now. I had to upload a version with Particles disabled, since apparently they cause issues in some browsers with Godot. :(
