It's been a while since I enjoyed a game so much; of course it's been a while since I've played games. Who cares if it's a little rough around the edges, what matters is that I can go bowling through a stack of cones at high speeds. It's also good practice for some of this Colroado weather we've been having.

Interesting, and looks promising, but isn't there yet.

* I managed to hop myself completely out of the track - I got flipped upside down, hit space to right myself, landed on another racer and bounced out of the track entirely. At that point, I couldn't get back on the track (although I got myself up to some pretty fast speeds!)

* It's way too easy to get stuck on the wall. If I hit the wall at an angle such that I'm pretty much perpendicular to it, I can't get off without stopping and backing away. This is bad. I should be able to just turn myself and slide off - after all, the racers aren't *square*

There's a ramp right where the traffic cones are that you can use to get back on the track.

Nice looking and would be fun to play but there's at least one significant bug and the conrols are messed up.

Bug - The laps don't tick down.

Controls - Turning is bad with the keyboard, it would be easier to control with the mouse, as that has variable control. The behavior of the wall doesn't act right. It seems like there are several thresholds that incorrectly determine whether the ship bounces, sticks or spins. While on the wall, the inability to turn while accelerating is also not right.

I completely agree.

Analog joypad support would be nice as well as mouse control.
