Seems the fuel tank isn't connected to delta time, meaning the game is impossible on a higher fps pc. Nice voiceover though

hey Spacespy, thanks for stopping by.  Yes I didn't factor in delta time for the fuel tank. A complete oversight on my part 👨‍🎤 I'll fix it soon a re-upload the game.

Really cool idea! Graphics and sound were great. Humour is a definite highlight. The voice over really adds a lot. Also the tutorial was greatly appreciated and thematically appropriate.

Call me a sociopath but I found murdering the bunnies extremely satisfying, the blood trail was great! Can't wait for the bunny murdering sequel.

The only constructive criticisms I have are that sometimes the controls felt like I got stuck on edges? And I realize that making split second turns is part of the game but I feel when you're trying to find the best shortcut it may be best if the controls were more like an ice level in a video game. Like where you can't switch direction until you stop, so you can think out your next move.

Great entry and nice job Xander :D

Hey, thanks for the comment Jet Simon. Appreciate the feedback. Those bunnies are evil and deserve to be killed LOL. The controls feel a bit 'sticky' because  I set them up to be able to only turn left of right when moving preventing a 180 degree turn. If you stop against a wall this can seem a little tricky though, I did feel that while play testing but decided to leave it as it was :) 

I like the idea of not being able to switch direction until you stop but that would require me to think out the level design a lot better :) 

Did you manage to beat the game in the end?

Yes it took a few tries but I got it :)

Nice! Thanks for playing. I'll be checking out your entry today :)

Great game idea, I very nearly made a lawnmower game as well

thanks Rich. What did you go with?

a top down space racing game, but not sure I'm going to get it finished for the jam but may work on it after

good luck bud

I am very sorry that you don't make videos on YouTube anymore, I was always following you, it's a real shame

I'm just taking a break. I'll be making videos again next month
