Yes, I made a new racing game. This time it’s about motorcycles and outlaw riders! It also includes 15 tracks, making money, upgrading stuff, betting against your rivals and other little improvements here and there. This time I managed to include almost everything I wanted to try with my current racing engine. Well, except flying with gliders. I coded that part too and it was fun to play with, but scrapped it later due to time and balancing issues.

By the way, if you find the game too hard, you can cheat by clicking “unlock all” button at upgrade screen. It will open a new window and you’ll find the hacked version of the game, where you can buy all upgrades for free (via “fully upgrade” button).
A little side-note: When playing in fullscreen, some buttons (P:pause, X/N: nitro) don’t work because of flash’s security limitations, so it is not something I can fix. In fullscreen, you can use spacebar for nitro instead. Also, in some keyboards, pressing 2 arrow keys (like up and left) and spacebar at the same time doesn’t work, so in that case you can use X/N for nitro (N is useful when using WASD, X is better when using arrows). I was wondering before why some games have so many buttons attached to the same functionality and now I know.
Also, to chrome users: Current default flash player that chrome uses (named “pepperflash”, version 11.3), causes short sounds to lag, that’s another weird internal bug that I have no control over, you can experience this issue also in other flash games/applications. If it annoys you, just disable that player version by entering “chrome://plugins” in your adress bar and disabling “pepper flash”. Don’t worry, normal flash player will still be functioning and more important, it will work correctly.
I am pretty happy with the final result. But I am also very happy that it ended. Previous months were filled with unforeseen events in my personal life, it made working hard and drained my energy. I also feel a bit exhausted after working on three racing games consecutively. Finally I have some chance to work on something new!
