Interesting mechanic and nice looking graphics, very creative. It would be nice with more polished controls and more enemies, but has lots of potential.

This is such a very interesting concept! Would love to play a more polished version with a deeper iteration of the mechanic.

Great twist on the racing genre

Great controls, and the AI was fun to play against

Please expand on this

God I love a good racing game! the car handling felt great on a keyboard and I like how you have to jump out of your car in the middle of the track for a little pit stop. Good job man!

NIce little racing game, liked the look of the racing car and it felt good in the corners. Good job!

Very fun! I loved a lot about how the cars handle. Drifting around turns reminds me of playing Sega Rally, which is all I could ever ask for. The graphics have some nice effects, like the use of trails and particles. It was a creative idea to make the player get out of the vehicle to collect gas, but I really had the most fun while I was driving. Are there plans for more options while outside your vehicle, such as setting up traps? Also to note, on the 2nd lap the CPU had an animation glitch where they were locked in place for the rest of the race, constantly in a loop of their returning to car animation. All  in all, a lot of fun.

I found a new bug that I'm keeping in. You can actually steal the gas from the other player if you run into him while they're headed back to their car.

WOW, this game is fantastic, a couple of bugs but that is expected when you do so much in a game. The driving felt really comfortable and the drift was present but manageable which improved the game. The fact you have to hop out of your car to collect fuel is a lot of fun aswell. Really really awesome job. (How does this have so few ratings!)

The 2 bugs I found were when you beat the AI to a fuel he breaks and reversing doesn't use fuel so after I learnt the track I reversed the whole way round.

Ha ha ha! You Ferris Bueller'd the game. Awesome!

Your music rocks hard. Giving me a 90s Robert Plant vibe. The gas fetching mechanic is interesting, although I felt bad for the blue driver sometimes. I could see you expand this concept to like other things, like car parts and such and you have to go into buildings and pay for them and perform jobs for money. Like GTA meets Mad Max!

I thought the handling was way too slidey at first, but actually it's really fun.  Kind of reminds me of F-Zero X

Fun little racing game. I like the mechanic with the fuel being on the tracks. Risking and driving past a fuel canister to try to save a few crucial seconds. One issue I had was I drove off the track and it was very difficult to get back on.
