I went and bought this on Steam. Can't wait to see your other works there.

Jennifer is my fav. She reminds me of Michelle Rodriguez. I'm guessing Johnny is Duke Nukem and Sylvia is an Elle Driver reference, but whose Juan?

UltimoGames responds:

Can you write a review on steam maybe? Before the new update, I need to have enough reviews to get that thumbs up thing. Juan is just a bald, square pixelguy in a green suit :) The Endless Mode update will feature four new characters and new fruggler types. Thanks Cocacola!

Quite a unique game!
It's on my waiting list on steam store!!!

Pretty good as far as these games go, but you really need to pay more attention to key ghosting!

It is not possible on most keyboards to press up, left, and z all at the same time and have them all register as keypresses. If you have an expensive non-ghosting keyboard this isn't an issue but will be an issue for the vast majority of keyboards out there and yes it's a hardware thing.

Result will be one of those three keys, if used in that exact combination will not work, so either you're not firing or you're not moving left or you're not aiming up, just depending on the exact keyboard in use.

In general, don't make games where some combination of button presses is likely to ghost and this is trivially easy to test too by merely hooking up a standard keyboard and using a key ghosting tester (Microsoft provides a website for this as well as there are several others) and press whatever keys all need to be pressed and see if any of them fail to register when all pressed all at once.

Choose some setup which doesn't ghost on two or three cheap test keyboards and it'll probably be good for most.

But to make things easier for you, X and C are better choices than Z and X in combination with the arrow keys, or you could even use A and S in combo with arrow keys. Which exact combination of keys will ghost is keyboard-specific, but up left and Z almost always ghosts. Two keys pressed at once never ghosts. Three or more is when ghosting comes into play.

UltimoGames responds:

I was not aware of that, my new games will support controllers and joysticks, but I should also implement multiple keyboard inputs. Webgames are a bit troublesome, so the games should be simple in its controls. I also plan to release multiple UltimoGames-games at once on steam: UltimoGames collection volume 1 (or something like that). Thanks for the help!

OMG THIS IS AWESOME!!!You don't see this all the time

fun little thing

UltimoGames responds:

thanks, this game was perfect in its development time and scope. Interstate Drifter is a big drag of a project. My next webgame should be small and complete, like this.
