I enjoyed this game, though it took me a little bit to understand what was going on. Some kind of menu screen (rather than jumping right into the game) paired with even just a sentence of instruction would be helpful. I did figure it out after the second play, though. I liked the concept of this game, and the gameplay was fun and balanced. I love the bottles piling up on the screen, and that they simulate getting hit when you hit another vehicle. The lighting, graphics, and UI was nice, too. Good game!

Amazing game for a solo effort! I like how the car and boat handled, and the bottles piling up and shifting around was a really well done touch. Felt like it could have used a little music, and the bottle art style was at odds with the rest of the game, but that's just nitpicking on an otherwise solid game!

This is the only game I tried where I have no idea what the source material is about, but it looked so cool that I had to give it a go, and well, it didn't disappoint one bit! Really fun to play, thanks for making it :)

loved this simple game.. that dark colored car is difficult to see in the dark xD

but other than taht pretty good

Great graphics and the sound effects are on point. Gameplay is nice and tight, though I felt like a few times I thought I hit the "bottle box" (whatever you want to call it) and would just miss getting the exta bottles. All the effects were very cool and very fun to play! Only thing I would add is a nice soundtrack and this game is going places! Very well done, congratulations!
