Awesome! I love kart games.. Really well done, my only complain would be that i wanted some more complexity behind the main mechanic, for example the drift is what makes mario kart repeatable for me,because it's hard to master and adds depth to the gameplay. But that's a gamejam we are talking about so no worries! Cheers!

Dayum, very polished and fun cart racing game. Well done!

Submitted(+1)

Cool game, the gem mechanic was a good idea but I feel it makes catching up very hard.  The idea to just use a second camera for the mini map was smart but I would have preferred it a lot smaller with better visibility for the carts. But well done overall

Developer

Thanks. The aerial view was a bit self serving and nostalgic. It would be a fun exercise for me to try and render the karts larger than they are on the second camera. I haven't had to do something like that yet.

Pretty cool with the 2D assets in a 3D world. Though, enemies randomly breaking right in front of you is quite annoying. The game is also only beatable in at least two runs. Since you start all the way in the back, and the next time you start at your finish position.

Developer

Thanks. It's possible to win starting in the back. Of course, I've had a lot of practice.

Really cool game, loved the 3d/2d  style, I felt like playing mario kart for gameboy, feels really polished

Submitted(+1)

Also the AI feels really nice

Developer(+1)

Thanks much! The AI was and as always with a jam was my worst enemy. Glad I got it to a level where it can be fun.

Submitted(+1)

Very good game! I like the retro vibes in it but I quite don't understand what do the pickups do. Nonetheless, it's a very fun and engaging game to play. 4.5 / 5 :)

Developer

The gems increase your top speed.

Submitted(+1)

Loved this, never would have though to make a racing game with the art pack. The driver AI seemed realistic and it was fun to race although once I got in front it felt like I would win every time. To add a bit more polish I would suggest having the sprite change slightly to indicate you are turning. Some tracks that require you to brake would be good too, I just went full throttle the whole way round

Developer(+1)

You're right--something like rotating the kart sprite would have gone a long way. As per usual during a game jam, the AI took up a lot of my time; if I had gotten the AI better, I would have made driving a little tougher with drifting. I wanted people to go fast!

Submitted(+1)

Collecting the gems increasing your speed is a really interesting mechanic, I liked it!
My main criticism is that the cart didn't really control that well, it needed some torque and slide and stuff like that, to make it feel more "cart"-like.
But really unique entry, and I had a lot of fun trying to beat the AI. Great work! Awesome job!

Developer

Thanks so much. If I can made the AI a little better, I would have turned up the drift more--it's there, but it's almost nominal.

Submitted(+1)

I loved it just because of how different it is from other submissions. Also really fun to play through once cuz the AI gives a nice challenge.

Developer

Thanks for being up to the challenge!

Very nice little karting game. I liked the little camera-tilting intro and rather like the map view at the bottom. The coin mechanic made sense and was fun when you got a lot of them - I played a few times to see if I could hog enough of them to lap one of the computer racers. Very nice :)

Developer

Awesome. It sounds like you cracked it!

Submitted(+1)

Very funny Mario Kart reference hauahuahuahau. 

Submitted(+1)

Fun little racer with solid feeling controls, Could be a lot of fun with some interesting tracks. I'm a real sucker for snes MK and this really invokes that feeling

Developer

Thanks. Your thumbs up means a lot then. I would have liked to have created some new tracks.

Submitted(+1)

Dude this is so good! If your goal was to pay homage to Mario Kart then you have succeeded. Really well done. The AI was actually really good at collecting coins but I managed to win when they got greedy for the coins on the final bend! Great job with this!!

Submitted(+1)

The game is pretty well done, especially for being a game jam entry. I did miss powerups, and/or some sort of drift mechanic, but that’s because I’m comparing it to Super Mario Kart.

Submitted(+1)

Nice controls well and is very polished and now i have a huge urge to play super mario kart lol

Submitted(+1)

I really enjoyed this one! I'm a sucker for racing games and you really nailed it. No complaints from me good job man!

Developer

Thanks!

Submitted(+2)

Really fun racing game and the AI made for a fun single player experience so that was great too. Controls felt really good overall a solid entry, would love to see more maps to help with replayability, but if wanting more is a complaint then that is obviously a good thing, nice job!

Developer

Thanks. That means a lot to hear!

Submitted(+1)

Nice game, really gave me sorta 90s vibe. Too bad, there wasn't more than one race. But anyway, good job, thank you for the game! On 50 gems I was real turbo.


Developer

Nice! 50 gems in a race is top notch!

Submitted(+1)

Why don't we have more snes MK nowadays

This style is the best!

kinda wish there was obstacles or drift but hey it's fun already lol

Good work!

Developer

Haha. Thanks. There actually is drift, I just had it turned way down. If I improve the AI, I could probably crank it up a bit.

Submitted(+1)

That was a really fun track racer! It felt pretty complete for an MVP. Perhaps the only thing I thought was missing was a place indicator, either during the race or at the finish. I definitely wasn't last, but the game called me a LOSER ;P

Developer

Yea the "loser" is a bit harsh. :P My first enhancement post submission was a place indicator. It's still a little buggy around the finish line though.

Submitted

I won't hold it against it :)
