Have been so busy lately the old lady has been posting a lot for me and forgot about my Retro posts!!  :26:

Here is the latest update on RunOut!  It's near complete and only needs a couple final tweaks before publishing (if it goes that way, and I sure hope it does!)

Enjoy!!

Select a car color with difficulty switches (yellow, red, and blue!!)!

  Left Difficulty "A" = Blue car

  Right Difficulty "A" = Yellow car

  Both "B" (default) = Red car

Pause the game with the B/W-Color switch (BW to pause, Color to unpause).
And all the Who's down in Whoville will cry
"OH $#IT!"

Thanks!  Now that the timer is done it's really a game.  No more granny drivin'!  I really like the camel and the deer graphics.  Since this download the pause screen has been altered slightly to avoid jitters on real hardware.  When one circuit is completed it rewards the player with some cool effects.

I've downloaded the latest version but I've not tested it yet.  I've been writing reviews most of the day.  :)

An update was posted today:

Quote
Much has changed in Run Out since the last download...
 
 The game is thoroughly shaded now and looks much better.
 
 After completing a circuit you are rewarded with fireworks.
 
  There are three fireworks displays and then the game ends with a special winning screen!!  (Three completions and you WIN!!)
 
 There are also a few more cars on the second and third circuits.
 
This game is basically ready for a cart and is super fun in my opinion.
 
  Fire is gas
 
  Left/Right Steers
 
  Up shifts (after first two slower gears automatically shift)
 
  Holding down is brakes
 
  Lightly tapping down in high gear once changes the high gear engine noise
 
  Color/BW turns "music" off and on
 
  The difficulty switches change the car's color (whenever you want to change them).
 
  Try it on your Harmony Cart TODAY!!
