A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

LIGHTRIDER - TORONTO GLOBAL GAME JAM 2015

LIGHTRIDER is a 1 button racing game. Created in 48 hours during the GlobalGameJam 2015 in Toronto. There can be as many players as there are keys to press. Race through the track, matching your color to the color on the track to gain speed boost.

Power Boosts:

If you change your color to the color of the track at the exact second you collide with the front of the track you will get a special speed boost (think Mario Kart mushroom). Perfect your timing to out run your opponents.

Reverse Attack:

White track parts, if boosted on, will reverse the color changing order for all other racers. Perfectly time a boost on them to mess up the other players.
