Good game

good program but it's too easy, and no way to lose

I think many people agree with this. Some designers decide not to make the player dies so that they keep playing. However, I like it better when the player dies.

@alvinwan1
you can think of this as a next iteration, right? what's your thoughts?

@haya
: For sure. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I just added a time and implemented the fuel bars. You can view the updated game at https://Kars--ALVINWAN1.repl.co

Great job! Just so you know though, I did find a bug with it. What would happen is I would run into a tree and continue holding down forwards. Eventually, I could press the backwards key and it would actually drive me forwards through the tree. Once through, if I pressed a combination of the two, the car disappeared. Check out a gif of it: https://imgur.com/r8inJhJ.

Also if you didn't know, you can drive off the map without anything happening to you. I would suggest it so that the car respawns when that happens.

@microwither
: Thanks for the feedback. This is great. Admittedly, I had a hard time with the object collision. I've updated the "algorithm" since, and it's hopefully less awkward. For falling off the edge, that's a great idea.

love it! it's very simple, wait on the car to appear and move it back and forth to the fuel station ⛽️ between the trees 🌲🌲
I would suggest to add a score and levels, the more I score the harder it gets, by adding multiple trees and maybe multiple fuels.

Profile icon
lvinwan

@user7282973
: Ooo multiple fuels and trees are great ideas. One concern I had is if there were so many spawns that the game was literally impossible. I'll keep that in mind, for sure.

My guy, I can just drive around over the abyss. Also tree hitboxes are bugged or something? I can basically shift through them by going back and forth with the car.

Profile icon
lvinwan

@mealtime
: Yeah, they're bugged. The boxes are assumed to be axis-aligned. I could implement more robust checking or use a real physics library, haha.

Profile icon
TotallyNotMessi

The "area of play" clips over the score, i don't know if you are aware.

Profile icon
lvinwan

@totallynotmessi
: Yeah, thanks man. I'll think about how to deal with small screens. Until then, the full screen version is probably the way to go https://Kars--ALVINWAN1.repl.co

fun game need to add a reset button

Profile icon
lvinwan

@calebduff
: thanks! hm, good idea - I've written it down

Profile icon
Caleb_Bradley

fun game but maybe add a start button instead of it already started...just so people know

Profile icon
haya

@calebbradley
: yeh I agree, it would be a good indicator. I think most people like a start of a game and end of a game

Profile icon
lvinwan

@calebbradley
: ah yes, I should add a start screen of some kind. thanks!

@zavexeon

Why is this man getting all of this hate. This game is amazing for a repl

Profile icon
haya

@mariojavach
: please mention me if you noticed any uncool behavior on in I built this 🔨. I personally like this game, our taste is different from person to person. I focus on keeping the language clear and civilized.

Profile icon
lvinwan

@mariojavach
: aw thanks!

*I would recommend playing at https://Kars--ALVINWAN1.repl.co instead of the link I posted above.

This game was a bit simple admittedly. I developed it for kids in underprivileged communities to code, as a part of Bit by Bit (http://littlebitbybit.org\)

Our group has also developed two other games that you can now find on repl.it!

You can add controls for mobile devices (such as touching different parts of the screen)
