Land Rover Discovery Challenge - Catmoo - Competition Entry
The second I saw the theme for LD19 I was straight on the interwebs to find something different to make a game for. And then I saw the Land Rover Discovery series and thought hey I can make a little racing game with land rovers (my cars were based off the 4th series). Now not being a programmer I thought making a little racing game would be hard, but I also thought it would be simple. Which at times it was, but others not so much.
This is the first time I've ever made a racing game (as it's probably quite easy to tell) and so I decided to try and keep it similar to one of my all time favourites Indy 500 (Atari 2600) as even with it's extremely simplistic nature it could keep you entertained. So I tried a similar approach.
Sadly I had a lot go wrong on me especially last minute (as it always happens then) which has caused my entry to only have on piece of sound sadly, making this my first entry that lacks on sound. As well as that my art isn't as good as it could be, and I spent no time on the tracks. Also after testing the file uploading works I noticed the vehicles could have been sped down a little.
Overall though I do enjoy playing it, and I'm happy with how it turned out, needs a bit of tweaks here and there and a load of polish and I'll be very happy with it.
Anywho to keep with the feel of Indy 500 I've made it available for multiple people to play (and sadly the one player is only one track due to lots of problems) so you can play on your own or have 2-4 players, the instructions screen shows the controls which consist of a variety of keyboard buttons.
There is no end to the game, just have some fun racing round the laps.
Land Rover Discovery Challenge was made in Game Maker 8 and has been tested on Windows 7 (64bit)
