Interesting game! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

Developer

Thanks!

Really interesting! It reminded me a lot of a game we were made to play in school when I was a kid (man, I'm old...), but with shooting! I enjoyed the feeling of exploring with such a limited map more than the combat, and I wish the turning was a little snappier, but really cool overall :)

Pretty weird, but interesting! Probably faster turning & movement would have made it more enjoyable.

I had a total gush at it starting in MA and NY, two areas where I've spent a lot of time living. I liked the environments but turning was sooo slow! Made getting around tough!

totally bizarre

I wish it was easier to get around I would have explored it more

I appreciate how this feels like a game on the Spectrum or spectrum era hardware. I really enjoyed being able to roam around through tiny little environments. Once I realised I had a bit of a map in the top right I got the feeling there's more I could explore.

But I couldn't really enjoy shooting other cars. It took me a few minutes to realise I was actually being shot at.

I think it would be wiser to focus on either driving around or shooting other enemies. Some things to improve the driving a little bit are:

  • Faster turning: at the moment it's slightly slow and sluggish, it takes me a while to turn around and it doesn't feel very car-like.
  • Acceleration: currently, I press W and the car 'steps' forward instantly. What might make the car feel a bit more enjoyable is a build up of speed when I hold W and a slow down when I hold S.

All in all though, well done!
