Gameplay & Controls

Game modes

The game has two game modes: Time Attack and Duel.

In Time Attack, your objective is to finish a 2km (1.24 miles) sprint as fast as you can. Your best time will be saved.

In Duel, you will face a computer opponent. Beat him to the finish line over the same 2km sprint. If you win the race, your best time lead will be saved. Your total win count will also be saved.

You can see your current records on the main menu screen.

Controls

There are two difficulty levels in the game: Easy & Hard.

Easy Controls

In this mode the transmission is semi-automatic (and a bit low-tech, too).

The right action button controls the acceleration.

The left action button is the clutch. While you keep it pressed, you can use the Joystick/D-PAD Up/Down to shift to a new gear. The gear selector will be displayed while you're holding the button. After you shift to a new gear, release the clutch button and press the right action button to accelerate (you can hold the acceleration button while the clutch button is being pressed, it will not do anything).

Hard Controls

In this mode the transmission is fully manual.

The right action button controls the acceleration.

The left action button is the clutch. While you keep it pressed, you can use the Joystick/D-PAD Up/Down/Left/Right to shift to a new gear. The gear selection will be displayed while you're holding the button. After you shift to a new gear, release the clutch button and press the right action button to accelerate (or you can keep it pressed while holding the clutch button, the RPM will not increase while the clutch button is pressed).

In both control modes, you need to keep holding the clutch button until the gear shift animation finishes (it's only 2-3 frames), otherwise you'll break your gearbox (and you'll lose the race). There is a red indicator which stays on while the gear is still shifting, so you'll be able to avoid such disasters.

Managing your RPM

If the engine goes over a certain RPM, a warning indicator will be displayed. The indicator will gradually fill up, if it gets to 100%, you engine will explode and you'll lose the race. You need to shift to a higher gear or release the acceleration button in order to allow the engine to cool off (1930s technology right here!). In higher gears, the engine will overheat much faster.

The current RPM is indicated by a bar on your HUD.

TODO list

  • Support imperial units - currently, all units are metric.
  • Indicator to show race progress (simple minimap).
  • Sound
You can’t perform that action at this time.
