Well done, looks really fun :slight_smile:

I found the controls a bit awkward, and it does hurt my eyes on a large screen :smiley: But hey, in a smaller viewport it looks just great.

Thank you! Yes, it is crazy low rez, I’m actually working on a high res port now :wink:

Update:

The judging results are in. Bogus Roads got 2nd place for gameplay and 8th place overall! I also scored 8th place in audio and 18th place in graphics. This is out of 178 games.

Here’s a link to the results…
