Took me a minute to wrap my brain around that spinning screen. Epileptic  But, once a got the hang of it, i liked it!  I hope that pooping becomes a crucial game mechanic.

Also, i do enjoy that this is a multiplayer-on-same-keyboard game.  I'm making one too!  Most people don't like them, but it's a lost art i say.

Wild! I don't really know what's happening with the spinning screen; nice clouds and animation.

Thanks you guys, I do hope pooping becomes crucial too!  Cheesy
Yup, the screen spinning effect can be a bit confusing at first, I might remove it of give people the option to have it if it becomes a big deal for people.
Anyhoo, here's Prototype 2: http://www.box.net/shared/ado8ra3q61

That is pretty awesome, the controls are very difficult to get used to (I got stuck in corners a lot on demo 3), but I really like the graphical style. Great work so far.

I found the spinning screen VERY confusing.  It's an interesting graphic style you've chosen though.  Best.

Thanks people for the lovely comments!
@Cthulhu32:
Yes, I think it's more of the view of the game than the controls that is the problem.

@LiquidAsh:
Yes, I think I'll add an option to have the screen like that.

Good lord that screen spinning is hard to get used to. It's really interesting so far though.

very nice, love the effects and animations. But you can fly out the top and thus just avoid the hardest obstacles.

Nice game - I like the multiplayer aspect.  However, I found it rather difficult to control, and lost often.  Smiley

Did you compose the music?  I especially liked the track that plays when the race is over.
