- added 2 power ups to all tracks: Turbo Sneakers & Wheel Shield (see description above!)

- removed the green energy drinks for player 2 and made the blue energy drinks also collectible for player 2

- redistributed the energy drinks on all tracks

- the lonely couch and the pool regenerate energy much faster now

- The track and round records and the volume settings will be saved permanently now in the Windows and Linux versions

- reduced the amount of energy drinks on the tracks drastically and made them respawn every 30s instead of disappearing permanently when collected

- fixed a bug where the keyboard keys in the html version haven't been recognized after clicking outside of the game/browser and then going back again

- fixed a bug where the portrait of the secret character would still remain when another character had been chosen with a mouse click

- reduced app size dramatically (~100MB less!) which should result in better loading times!

- added the dev as a secret character: you have to enter a code in the character selection screen to access him.

Fun 2D game. Surprisingly addicting. I think I'm going to need new arrow keys. The music was very well done. The needing to pick up items was intuitive. I liked that I could get out of my chair and pick my own. Lots of characters to choose from. It's a fun little game.

Thank you very much! :-)

New things to come soon: New track, new character & race vs. AI opponents! Stay tuned!

Hello, that was very very fun to play!

2 ideas:

- Write in the game that you can use gamepads and not only keyboard. I'm a bad boy and I didn't read the description (... and I dare complain that my pupils don't read the instructions...) before starting and discovered the possibility by myself after 3 runs. Particularly for people who want to have fun with a friend but don't have a QWERTY keybord (many European countries), that may be an instant drop as the WAED is an impossible combination.

- in the selection screen put the players above the circuit as one select them first. I was a bit confused.

Fun and addictive  game! My marvins' home 1 lap PB is   36.14

very nice! Thank you!

Erm... May I ask you to do another run with the current version? I've added power ups that can make you faster! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™

That would be awesome!

Great game, easy and fun to play

Great game! Definitely the most polished of the jam!

Thx a lot! ๐Ÿ™

And sorry for the messed up times on the finish screen ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅฒ

This will be fixed first ๐Ÿ˜‰
