Cool concept, but I struggled to play alone!

It's virtually impossible to steer two bikes at once. Thanks for trying it anyway!

Very interesting idea! Would love to see some rudimentary AI so I can play without a friend.

Great work!

Thanks for playing! That could be neat and is probably not even that hard to implement. I also briefly thought about some race-track-like levels you could try to navigate in single-player mode.

Wow, that was very cool. Sadly I didn't have a friend to play against, but the concept is very smart. The key selection at the beginning really impressed me. The gameplay is very nice as well, but I think the circle selector thingy should be a bit faster so you can react better. But overall a very great game.

We did experiment a bit with the speed of steering wheel. You're right that making it faster actually makes the game a bit easier, and we found that once you sink a couple of hours of playtime into it (as we did during playtesting) it gets a bit too easy if the wheel is any faster than it is right now. So we decided to make it a little harder to leave more room for getting better at the game. I'm glad you enjoyed it anyway! :)

I don't have anyone to play with so I tried playing solo and it is hard! lol but a cool little idea. It follows the theme very well with the "only one button" to control your character and it brings a certain level of difficulty since it sort of removes some of the control away from you forcing you to think ahead and not being able to respond sharply do to the limitations of movements. It is definitely a unique idea that I've seen this far.

Developer

I tried to solo it a few times during development and it's basically impossible. I think the only thing you can really do is always press the buttons in sync, which makes the bikes drive a symmetric path as long as no items are collected (since the steering wheels stay in sync). I have some ideas for how to make single-player mode viable, but they were way beyond what we could've accomplished within the jam. Thanks for playing!

That was fun. I made my family play it with me too lol.
