this is just to show where i have started and to look back on for future reference I understand that this is not a 5 star game but I am eager to hear feedback and see what people reckon could be improved and how I may implement that in code.

Update 1
*fixed the wall stickiness a bit he now bounces off of them a bit more
*added music by the talented BreinStijn

*reduced the size of the spikes and edited the hit box

*added a nice icy background to explain why the 'Minotaur' slides around so much

still need some more feedback to polish this turd some more ok guys then i will move on to my next piece and hope to do a lot better.

Update2

*further improved the hit detection

*added a reset button (the big orange R) that works on click

not bad only the hit detection is pretty rough, if you just touch it by a scratch it will stop the car and hardly to move.
but nice try :D

I understand this is your first flash but the controls are a little to sensitive its like I'm sliding on ice.

ok well i plan to edit them as well as improve the design with sound and the like, do you think i should halve the speed its currently at 0.4 pixels and i can have it so it stops when the key is released if you would prefer?

3 Problems/ Bugs In The Game That Need To Be IMPROVED:
#############
* Ice Skating: If I slightly tap the arrow keys ONCE for a split second, the character seems to move until it hits a wall, so it's IMPOSSIBLE to avoid the spikes.
* As Afro-Nova said, BRUTAL hit detection: Even if you're about 10 pixels away from spikes, you die.
* Afro-Nova also said, Sticky Walls: running into a wall gets you stuck in place, unable to move in any direction except directly away from the wall.
#############
I understand that this is your first game, so instead of giving this 2 *s, I'll give this 3.5 *s

i have worked out that the hit detection is on the spikes is because the original file had a white background so they are kinda bigger than they look, i plan to change this in my first update as well as put in some sound. however I am still at a loss as how to fix the stickyness of the walls i want some acceleration as i think the icy controls add to the difficulty but it does need improving substantially and i find i am having to rely on online guides as i dont have the support of my uni teachers during the summer
