Rocket Boat Racing

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Share this project:

You're in a boat. For some reason you've strapped a few rockets on it, and there's this random race track made of slippery ice. What could go wrong?

This is for the Sports2020 challenge, and it was actually inspired by boat physics in Minecraft when you ride them on ice instead of water.

You can play the default levels and try to get as fast a time as possible, or you can create and share levels with others.

Future ideas for if the game is liked enough: obstacles, boost pads, live multiplayer and online leaderboards (if I can figure server stuff out).

VERSION 1.1

Last Updated: August 09, 2020

- All levels have been removed and remade (new level saving format), the first level is easier because the track is wider, and the last level is much harder (I hate this level myself)

- The screen is no longer centred on the boat, but is now constantly ahead of it. Also, the screen now rotates with the boat. This can rarely cause an earthquake effect if your framerate drops below 60 (older devices like mine get this more), so there's an option to turn it off on main menu.

- Added void mode. Fall off the track in this mode and you'll be teleported to the last checkpoint you ran over.

- High scores are now saved. Also, you can store as many levels as you like in the new levels list.

- A few other minor changes. Some small problems or weird things exist, like you can delete the default levels, but if you delete all of them they will all come back (but you will lose your high scores).

@RobinsonX Yeah I'm trying to make it as close as possible to Minecraft, already got a version where the camera rotates with you and it's actually quite a lot easier I think. Also first levels gonna be way easier when I'm done making update.

Jeez, I suck at this.. Literally over a minute for the circle level. 😂 This is a great concept, but I feel like the controls are a bit difficult to use for beginners.

Nice. Well done

If you want to share a level you made, I think it might be better to use the forums instead of the comments here because at the moment the codes are really long.

My best scores as of version 1.0: (btw there's no built in high score saving yet even for your own scores) Circle: 30.62s Curvy: 42.28s Sharp turns: 37.43s Many turns: 89.75s Spaghetti: 106.82
