Game of the Week Winner


Edited By Snakesoft on 6/30/2003

Originally created for a game-making competition sponsored by Ubisoft and Wizard of The Coast (2nd place), Magic Racer is a "Micromachines-like" driving game which, in a magic realm, eight sinister characters competes in the most improbable motor competition. Choose your digital alter-ego among the fantasy-idiots avalaible and go challenge! The game offer three wide tracks, each one with its ground and its peculiar characteristics: the forest, the icy mountain and the castle. You will have to challange and win all the three tracks, in order of finally win the prestigious tournament and boast yourself with your friends, family and job colleagues.

The available game modality includes: single race, time attack, 2p mode. Since everybody knows that being honest is not fun at all, along the tracks you can collect several spells for massacre without mercy your opponents. Unfortunately, your opponents also can do the same.. it's an hard life.

All this in less than three megabytes, so you cannot allege excuses for not download it ("ooh.. yes.. I REALLY would like to download it but, you know.. I don't have a broadband connection.. it's becoming late.. I have to go now..").

Note: the 2P mode has still not been debugged, so no panic is something doesn't work properly. This is the 1.3 version of the game, it's on making a new version.. look on our website for more info. Please, give us criticisms and suggestions!!

[ edit: the remote server has been changed, now the download should work properly for everybody!! ]

Now THAT is what I call a top-notch, top-down racing game!:D Absolutely brilliant characters' portraits, excellent engine & ingame GFX, competitive CPU-driven opponents, lightspeed action and great playability! Can't wait for the next release;)

It looks great and by the sound of these comments: is great! I am downloadin now
 
Posted by Andi Smith 26th June, 2003

can I make one suggestion? It really needs a mini-map of the track, with the racers placed accordingly in one of the bottom corners.
 
Posted by Zapper 26th June, 2003

Ahh a nice little idea that, I think thats probably the only bit of "constructive criticism" this game is gonna get, cause its awesome!

Great game, very impressive! I agree with Andi though... A mini-map would improve it quite a bit.

Finally managed to download it, looks good. I've got a couple of remarks/suggestions. I did run it on a XP1800/512Mb/GeForce4 and it runs awfully fast, the car is a bit to hard to control. Also it runs in full window mode and on a 1024x768 it doesn't look to pretty, maybe you better run it in the original windows size and have a border around it instead of stretching the window to a full window. Thirdly, you've used indeo as a video codec, which isn't a free coded anymore, it doesn't come standard with windows XP, it only can be downloaded when payed for it. So someone with a new pc can't play the video and get's quite some error messages and the codecs can't be downloaded automatically anymore, because indeo stopped giving them away for free. (The old codecs can still be downloaded from other websites though). A track 'radar' and an indicator where you are on the track would be nice. Also when turning around you get no warning that you go the wrong way. Also the use magic key '-' is a bit akward, a key closer to the other keys would be much more logic. Last remark, when following the track (the one with the trees). without turning around the other drivers suddenly are going the other way, driving towards you, is that supposed to be so? Besides all these comment, the game looks good, cool magics and fun to play!

Thank you all for the comment, guys! ;) I've just changed the remote server for the file, so there should be any other problem with the dowload. Try and let me know!!! :P

Andi/Zapper/Duncan: good idea, we'll try to implement a mini-map system. I only hope that it is possible to make a good mini-map in a 320x240 screen.. the tracks are pretty wide.. ------------------------------ Ruffles: you're right.. improve this aspect is one of the priorities on the new version. ------------------------------ Benjamin: thanks for this lot of comments! I'll try to answer each point.. - I think the game itself is quite fast, not only on your computer. Or, at least, I think so. It's really excessively fast on your computer?!? -The windows is not stretched, it's the normal "full-screen" event of MMF 1.5. What is esactly the problem on your PC? The graphics looks stretched? Are there frame-rate problems? Let me know, please!! -The video codec.. oh my god, I really didn't expect this.. I've just used the AVI object given with tgf/mmf.. do you know which other object could I use for having any similar problems? -Key "-": there is a problem of different national keyboards.. we'll try to search for a key configuration good for every keyboard.. which contry are you from? -Last remark: could you explain better this point? We're really interested in, but I didn't understand what is the problem. Thank you very much!!!!

Wow.Best click racing game ive seen.Great work.Its simple,but effective gameplay makes it pretty fun.The only thing i see wrong with it is the camera.I think you should be able to see further ahead of your car so you can see turns in roads.Great game.
