What INSPIRED this game?
The excessive amount of Battle Royale games on the market all of a sudden: wanted to make sort of a parody!

List the parts of your game you or your team did NOT make. (Pre-existing assets or downloaded content)
I used one sound effect for an explosion from the Youtube sounds library.

Lagged quite a bit when I first ran it(of course my computer is old), but after turning the graphics down it did better.  I like the graphics/art style though very much, but I couldn't really do anything with the rocket it seemed like. I hope you plan on expanding on this though, I've never seen a bumper car battle video game before!

Developer

Hey thanks for playing!! I'm sorry to hear about your lag, I suppose it's because of all the AI players, since the graphics are not that high tech ;) glad you enjoyed them though. About the rockets: did you download the original files or the updated ones from my game page? The original files unfortunately contain some game breaking bugs including rockets not working properly :( Anyway, thanks again for the feedback! I've been working hard on a final version of the game and I can say it's 99% finished! Going up after this weekend :D

HEADSUP FOR EVERYONE: DOWNLOAD THE BUG FREE VERSION ON MY GAME PAGE: THE ORIGINAL DOWNLOADS HAVE A GAME BREAKING BUG!!

AI is really dumb they dont use power ups, at least when I played. I like the idea, would be much better with multiplayer :). 

Encounter a strange bug where my car landed on its side, and I cant move, I can boost but the car doesnt tilt back onto its wheels. 


Had lots of fun with missiles though! :)

Hey, thank you for playing! I just got done working on the improved AI that does go for pickups and fire rockets. It's also my first AI ever, haha. Multilayer would be really cool but is a stretch goal for now. The cars have a cube collier for now, so that happens. I might fix that in de future! Thanks for the feedback :)

love the art style, I love low poly stuff so that's always a winner for me ;) it's also the game I've had the most fun with, so far, so great job with that :D the only thing it was missing was music and SFX, with those it would just bring the whole project together nicely. Great job :)

Developer

Heey, Thanks a bunch for playing man! Haha, yeah, when it comes to gamejams lowpoly is my go-to because I can super quickly knock out some assets when I'm in need of time. I'm not actually a modeler anyway, so I couldn't even do better if I wanted to haha. Yes! I agree, keep an eye out for the final version that will go up after this jam. I almost got done working on it, and yes, it already has SFX, music, enemy weapon handeling, particle animations etcetera!! Super excited to post that :D Thanks for the feedback!

Crashday with bumper cars! haha

I never heard of that game, but it seems a lot like this indeed :D Thanks a lot for playing!

Love the game, really fun to play. Adding some visual effects for rockets exploding and cars colliding would be good, but otherwise its a solid game, congrats

Developer

Thanks a lot for playing!! Glad you enjoyed it :) Yes! That and good sound effects are the first things I want to add.

I liked the idea of the game. The gameplay is easy to get hooked in, and the challenge difficulty is just perfect in my opinion. This is my favorite game submitted for this gamejam.

Developer

Awhh, thank you so much ThaiCat!!

it needs sound effects and wacky music so badly i cant stand it. this was a lot of fun. throw in some explosions on the rockets and ill add this game to my collection when its finished. so much fun

Developer

Yeaa man! It's the first thing on my 2do list, I'd love for it to have that. I gotta add many features, including enemies being able to fire rockets >:) thanks so much for playing, I'll make sure to refine it and upload a finished version after the jams done!

This game was hilarious fun. I actually won my first battle, but blew myself up by shooting a tree in the second. The physics are kind of funky, but I don't really mind, as the gameplay is hilarious. The AI is savage!

Developer (1 edit)

Super glad you liked it! Good job on getting that tasty chicken dinner on your first try. Rockets can be tricky for sure , haha. I think the strange physics combined with some weirdly written AI actually creates some pretty awesome 'savage' unintentional actions and attacks sometimes hahaha. Its not a bug, its a feature ;) Thanks so much for playing!

This was great! I felt a little picked on as all cars seemed to have it in for me .The idea of the pits was cool i waited in front and then used boost to get away leaving 3 cars to fall to there doom .The graphics are simple but awesome .And the overall game was fun .i played twice and both times came second . Well done dev..

Developer

Hey, thanks for playing man! Yes, all the cars want to bully you because they are mean and have no life, haha :P That pit tactic sounds awesome, I haven't tried that myself yet! Thanks for the compliments, it can be really tough to get first place sometimes indeed.. But it will become harder in the future. I'm planning on expanding the AI so they can also shoot rockets. Good luck ;)

Well, that was frustrating!. Those cars are savage and unrelenting. Great!

Developer

That's the best kind of compliment I could have gotten, thanks xD!

I personally enjoyed it a lot!! I love the design and, although the car movements felt "heavy", I could (and I did) replay the game several times.
Edit: The feeling of the car movements is more of a personal taste, tho...
Great job!

Developer(+1)

Awh thanks man! Yeah, car feeling is not totally there yet, but it used to be much worse than this, haha! I'd like to refine that, but I'm not that good with nailing physics yet. Thanks so much for playing :)
