This is a 1 or 2 player game. Alternate hitting left and right arrow keys to gain speed for player 1 or 'A' and 'D' keys for player 2.

I hope you like this game. There's really not that much to it, but it should be fun if you have two people around and like the old nintendo track and field.

P.S. I hace been making these short games to improve my flash ability, but I will be beginning work on the lounger 2 shortly.

The controls don't feel very consistent

Not the best version of this track and filed style of game, the animation leave a lot be to be desired and the plain background makes you uncertain of your speed at any given time. On top of that the controls would randomly cut out and make you go at zero speed, making hard mode impossible.

Pretty good for a one-off.

It's not a serious effort, but we all know that. Put something special in (at least another headline) for breaking the world record (14.1666 is my best time, barely beat Medium). Do more Track and Field type stuff (original events, please), and put it all together, and you might have something.

um... kinda bad but

if u make another version of this make sure the world record dosnt like reset ever time u close it make it like a scrore board if u can(short review by Billy)~~~~~******

Could be fun for 2 players

The animation was really not too bad for a game like this. I liked the things you used for the racers, as well as the tapping of the keys to make them move. I only played this game by myself, but I bet it would be awesome to have some one going crazy on the keys next to me too. Decent job. I think it could use more sound though.
