The Ultimate Race

Windows (.zip version available)
(No Linux version currently available, there's a bug I can't find right now)

This was made for the annual SomethingAwful GameDev Challenge V. The theme for this year was "You Can't ____" – something that you would normally be able to do, but something that you are now unable to do.

Make a game out of it!

As such, The Ultimate Race is subtitled "You Can't Avoid Having Constant, Instantly-Fatal Heart Attacks".

This is my first game with a physics engine involved, and some parts of it went . . . rockily. I ended up spending far more time fighting my tools and far less time actually making the game than I'd expected. Still, here's a game. Go play it!

    Ha. It was cool. You only made it for on resolution which was bigger than my screen. I also had to figure out the controls. The ending was funny though. Add some checkpoints and better graphics and you might have yourself a halfway decent game.
