How long does it take to get a mile?
In the in-browser version, it should take about 2 minutes for 1 point.
In the full version, it should take about 8 hours, as per the original game.
Game works but mile counter isnt working for me.
The rom version is the full version. You need to play for 8 hours straight to get a point. That's a point counter, not a mile counter. It doesn't go to 1 until your first point, after 8 real time hours.
You can download the "short" rom instead, in which case you'll only need to play for 2 minutes in order to get a point.
Anyway to add a mile marker?

It shouldn't be too hard to add a second counter sprite that updates based on the distance travelled variable each frame, but you'll have to do it yourself. I want this version to remain in its original state as of the end of the Jam where I made it.
