Good fun! The driving model could be a bit better. The car should have an inertia and whe you turn, you can slide a bit. That would make it more interesting. But still good.
Kosmic Kart pays homage to Super Mario Kart. It was made as part of Miz Jam 1.

Thanks for the feedback. This game, like most of my game jam entries, I work on them a little after jam but never get around to updated them on itch.io. I definitely added some good touches to this one, to the point I should probably go ahead and update it.
If I recall right inertia exists but I tightened it up so much that you can't even tell. I think I did that to compensate for deficiencies in my AI.
Hi... As a Mario Kart lover, I did not find this game bad.
Really cool game :D
Nice little game. Not able to win though. Those kart days! How I miss it.
Feeling the nostalgia on the entry screen!
Pretty cool ! Nice retro kart vibes
Loved the style ... specially that beep musics ..
Thanks! I used the SID instrument plugin with LMMS. You can't go wrong with a good funky four bar progression.
