Help Wheelbot and his plucky sidekick Clyde race to the finish with as many gears on hand as possible!

Arrow Keys to move, Z/Space to jump, X/Up to Help. Hold down + Jump to swooce through thin platforms.

Fill up the tiny bar by running laps around the map and fill up the big bar by grabbing the floating sparkly crap!

The game is good and it is a good platform with an interesting and novel mechanic but it is not a mechanic for me

Ultimate plot twist, I'm crying RN how dare you.

is fun i like that the motor from the robot sounds like gta san andreas sanchez

Hmm, I felt like this game does have some potential going for it, but ultimately I found it very repetitive and uninspired as it current stands.

There are some good aspects to it, certainly: for example, I like the goofy art and presentation, as well as the feeling of speed and momentum you can get with the player character as they roll around at high speeds. I also like the bumpy feeling of running over the terrain and watching the collected items fly out, haha. And below the incredibly loud music (which had some pretty rockin' tunes) that unfortunately drowns it out, I think I can hear the sounds of a rising pitch modifier being used for the pick-up sound to make it more satisfying.

But for my playthrough, I spent most of it very confused because of the lack of a tutorial that doesn't teach you the controls or the rules. Even when I did think I figured it all out, I found the game very unsatisfying from the way the levels just seemed to repeat the same basic loop over and over without any improvement: collect items, run a few laps, boom, over and over. No challenge, no excitement, no nothing. Again, I felt like it was a bit of a shame because the game looks like it has some charm to it, but without any hook or interesting mechanic, it lost me. Maybe it can come back in a more fleshed out version?

I feel like it's missing something, I think it would be nice if there were some hilly areas. Still I love a good speed game so good job on it!
