Description

This is a pre-alpha build of Turbo Run. It is still very much an unfinished prototype and does not feature a full set of game play mechanics or features. AI is still very primitive and the car select screen hasn't been fully implemented yet, so only one car is playable for bot the human and AI.


This is a pre-alpha build of Turbo Run. It is still very much an unfinished prototype and does not feature a full set of game play mechanics or features. AI is still very primitive and the car select screen hasn't been fully implemented yet, so only one car is playable for bot the human and AI. 
This build is two months old at time of release.

Controls:
Accelerate: W or Up Arrow Key
Brake: S or Down Arrow Key
Steer left and right: A and D or Left and Right arrow key.
Hand Brake: Space (helps turn but slows you down)

Decided to release the latest stable build of Turbo Run since the next builds probably pretty far off and its been too long without anything playable to show. Dont expect much please, its just a prototype. The controls need tweaking and take a little to get used to. Threes sort of a technique to driving in it; you have to kind of treat it like a real car, coast into corners and accelerate out, while braking if you pick up too much speed. Please try to get the hang of it before you give up from crashing too much.

Please keep the graphics option set to "good". "Great" causes artifacts on transparent .pngs.

Its fun but I have a few qualms.

1) The presentation of speed is not really there. I was surprised to see I was going like 120mpg but it looked more like 80. Not to mention tapping spacebar slams you down to 30mph.

2) Controls on keyboard are not ideal. I don't have a joystick but I am hoping for a more tuned up control plan. Perhaps not as tight turning, when simply pressing left or right, or maybe even mouse support.

Pretty good alpha you got. Would love to see snowy levels and night ones too.

So yup, controls are too much sensitive, and accerelation it's weird.
It takes 2 seconds to make from 0 to 40, and half of the sec from 40 to 144.

Really love the visuals! Have to agree with the guys above me, I think that the car feels like its 'floating' the speed it accelerates is odd, but also the turning. For me it feels like the pivot of the car is smack bang in the middle, changing that will make a huge difference.

another thing- in sharp corners cant see the road ahead, because camera is still rotating.

anyway, this thing should be awesome! love the visuals and feel of it.

the visuals are lovely, though I found the controls to be a bit annoying. The cornering on large turns works really well, but on smaller turns I can't get the control I want.

If possible, I'd like to maintain grip when not accelerating in a corner, and then drift when I accelerate. At the moment, not accelerating makes me drift and accelerating just makes me crash.

But, super cool =)

Try updating your video cards drivers? I've never heard of anyone having issues like that with unity.

First off brilliant little game really coming along but is there any chance the camera can be fixed to look at car for me going round a corner the camera wouldn't track the bend making it difficult to corner without hitting the wall.

Yeah that will be adjusted, VonZippenstein was working on a new camera system but it didn't work out so he just set it back to this style.

Nice little game so far! I actually liked the controls a bit, but they weren't perfect. I'll definitely look forward to any future updates!
