great, for a game what should've been posted in 2001. bad for a 2013 game, and unenjoyable in 2015. a good game, but to old for now.

It has a great retro touch! I like the in-game graphics and the music. However, the advertising is disturbing and the gameplay is repetitive.

Awsome ... this brings me back to 1993 xD .... i realy love it =)

It's like a suped-up version of Rad Racer for NES, which was just a suped-up version of the old sit-down version of Pole Position if you remember it.

I really like the effort you put in as developer. The upgrades are effective, the game maintains a good pace, and there is a definite retro-feel to the game. So far, my only gripe is that there aren't more crashes. I used to love the Road Rash series for this, which I think this could have borrowed from for more variety. Additionally, at times the pacing seems a little slow just because it usually takes more than one race to get another upgrade and the checkpoints are somewhat far between.

The 3D landscape combined with pixel-art bikes works really well. Sense of speed is convincing, without the controls going sloppy. I like the additional racers, road-signs, UI graphics like the neon bike in the upgrades screen, and other small details.
Definitely like the parallax backgrounds, and the variety of the levels.

Good music, here, and the sound effects aren't annoying. Loops play smoothly and are energetic. I like that each different menu screen has different music attached, as well do the races.

I think that if anything, I would have liked more customization or bolder features like ramps and the ability to grapple/punch-out other racers for more depth. Maybe additional bikes, or just bike colors, as well as specific "parts" upgrades rather than generic "speed/accel/turbo" labels. Also they could probably be cheaper.
Also, your position during a race is not shown...which could be handy!

out of 10...

gfx - 8.0 (elements work well together, crash animation "jumps" back to track tho)
sfx - 8.5 (good compositions and variety)
design - 8.0 (some depth could be added, but it isn't confusing)
gameplay - 8.5 (good arcade-style, solid controls)

overall, this is a great game for fans of old-fashioned arcade racers. I would estimate a play-through would take about 30 minutes, optimally. Seems perfect for a flash game: lite, fun, and a little nostalgic.
Definitely recommend this to ANYONE, not just racing fans, as it doesn't demand a large investment of time and is pretty radical just overall.

hey I know this comment is over a year old, but I must have missed it first time around, thanks for the awesome review, really so helpful and encouraging!

it glitched out or something. when i started it said "you didn't qualify, press r to restart." but when i did nothing happened and ended up just being disapointed. :(
