FAQ:

1. Why doesn't the Enter key work in the menu?
- The non conventional control is part of the menu design. Navigation using only the arrow keys is simple, quick and logical. In the game there is also no need for any other keys. Furthermore in fullscreen mode - which is an option in the game - detection of the Enter key doesn't work. Ask Adobe about why it's like this.

2. Can I play using a mouse?
- No. The game is controlled using the arrow keys only.

3. The game is slow and/or stutters. Why?
- The game uses the cpu intensively, therefore a P4 is the minimum suggested requirement. To make the game faster, try a rougher ground detail setting and/or full screen mode in the options menu.

4. I get a pop-up asking for permission to store information on my computer, what should I do?
- The game stores save data on your local hard drive (ghost kart data, racing statistics, etc), allowing it to do so is safe, the pop-up only shows up only once.

Poor,very poor game

Controls are horrendously unresponsive and delayed... which killed the game for me. The two review below are probably fake.
The game visual are sweet though and so is the music, but what's a game with broken controls.. zilch.

Perhaps YOU have a problem. Probably the game wouldn't be released if it wasn't working properly.

good racer

I liked it. Using a small keyset is just great. It keeps your mind set on the game instead of wandering which of the 20 buttons to mash.

Although I liked the controls and also liked the car's reaction in practice mode the competition took away some of the fun. Controlling the car became much more difficult, because there was always a delay between button pushing and the car's reaction.
Holding down two keys, sometimes blocked one of the keys.

I like it, that there's no fake boundaries. Like when you get out of the track - well dammit then you're out of the track! You won't bounce back from some invisible wall.

The music didn't do any harm and I guess the graphics suit the style of the game nicely. Overall, a good racer!

Thx, and keep it up!
4/5 8/10

Sweeeet!

Really really nice, very smooth and simple controls, good AI, well designed tracks.

One thing I would ask for is some upgrades or different cars or something but maybe thats just me always wanting more.

Good work.
