Please download this version to try out the full game of Cycling the board game!
It is June 29th, 2018. This year's Tour de France will start in just over one week, however only a select few participants are accepted. If you want to experience what it is like to race in races like La Grande Boucle, you now have the chance...
If you like board games and if you love the sport of professional cycling, i hope you can enjoy this game as well. You select a team of three riders, each with their own strenghts, weaknesses and personality. You compete against two other teams in a season with different races, both single stage and multiple stage.
Do you have what it takes to be the winner at the end of the season?
The game is controlled using only the keyboard. In the menu, use the key next to the menu item to select that item. When in a race, use S to make a special move or D to make a regular move. Use Q to spend energy and E to save energy. Finally, use the arrow keys to cycle through the different information screens to get a feeling of what is going on in the game.
Last but not least, when in doubt press SPACE to continue and if nothing else works, just press ESC to quit. A more comprehensive tutorial is included inside the game.
I love creating games, but if there is one thing i have learned over the past years, it is that it's incredible difficult to make something good. So please, leave me any feedback you have regarding the game. Did you have technical issues? Did you not understand the user interface? Of did you not enjoy certain parts of the game? Please let me know! I am more than happy to respond to your feedback and try to improve the game.
If you would like to join me in creating this or likeminded games, please get in touch! You can always send me an email at email@example.com.
I have downloaded most of the artwork in the game, all credits are listed in the game itself.
