    drops dead for me after the title screen. I think an error message flashes by, I don't know for sure. Looking forward to a py2exe!

    PsySal says ...

    Couldn't get it to run! I can run other pygame/python games, I get a syntax error line 27 at "if fullscreen". Hmm...

    This was a surprisingly tough game. Reminded me of playing Parsec on my old TI99 going through the refueling tunnels. I never made it past the first level (of course I tried to go insanely fast too ;-).

    matrin says ...

    Ran it with DrPeters fix. Goes nice and fast. :D But needs some polish.

    Orangy Tang says ...

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "C:\LD13\Road Racer\LD13\main.py", line 3, in <module>
    import pygame as sdl
    ImportError: No module named pygame

    Looks like I've not got pygame installed. How about a version with it included (or better yet, an all-inclusive exe version?).

    crc says ...

    Started without problems on this setup
    + Python 2.6.1
    + Pygame 1.8.1 for Python 2.6
    + Windows XP

    Gilvado says ...

    Difficult -- you can't go very fast or you'll die. Not particularly innovative, but it works. Would have preferred if there were pick-ups or obstacles or something like that.

    sol_hsa says ...

    No windows exe..

    DrPetter says ...

    Crashes with this:

    File "psnake\LD13\car.py", line 20, in collide
    pxls = sdl.PixelArray(
    collision_map.subsurface(self.rect) )
    AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'PixelArray'

    I'm assuming it needs a different pygame version. The game seems like it could be fun, so I might update pygame and give it a try later. Will edit this comment if I do. Consider releasing a post-compo windows executable next time.

    swergas says ...

    on my ubuntu, your game didn't want to run and yield an error in the loading of images. to make it run correcly, i have replaced the "\\" in the paths to the images by a "/", on lines 43 and 46 of main.py and on line 15 of background.py.
    now for the game, i liked the collisions a lot, but sometimes the way is simply impossible to pass through without losing life. for the gameplay, acceleration and deceleration is fine but the horizontal movement of the car is not realistic. overall, the game is good but maybe light in terms of work and features

    HybridMind says ...

    beat it! i love how the car doesn't turn but just strafes left and right! ;) well-- took me awhile to get a hang of driving through the small, then large intestine, then into the stomach, the esophagus and out the throat into space! All 5 levels of the body beat! Anyway-- seems fun and I like seeing how fast I can go before my car asplode.

    LD Road Racer (Final)

    Well only some minutes left so I better put my (again unfinished) game.

    It’s Road Racer clone so it won’t be praised by its originality :)

    You have 5 levels (which are small parts of the same track) if you finish all 5 you win, if not try until you can.

    It’s fun to play for small periods of time trying to beat a better time. So I launch the challenge, put in the comments sections (besides your critics and comments, of course) your times and final status of your car to see how good you’re.

    Here’s the screeenshot (already used in an early post) and the source.

    Download (python source): link

    Instructions:

    • You need Python and Pygame installed (the latest stable releases)
    • In Windows: double-click the file main.py
    • In Linux: issue the command: python main.py

    Keys:

    • Arrows: Accelerate, Brake, Turn Left/Right
    • Q: Quit
    • R: Restart
    • Esc: Pause

    PostMortem to be written tomorrow or so.

    Have fun,

    PSnake

    I have a moving car and a collision map that works. Small things but I still think I can do it by the end of the day.

    With 1 day and 11 hours left I start working on my entry. I’m confident this time, I really think I can pull a good game this time around.

    I’m thinking in a racing game or something like it. Anyone remembers Road Fighter?

    Goodluck to everyone, and better luck for me :P
