Title SkyRacer 0.55b (89/89T/92+/v200)
Description This is version v0.55 of SkyRacer, now TITANIUM COMPATIBLE, by Malcolm Smith. This game is a clone of SkyRoads, Plane Jump, Plain Jump, or Baballe. I made this game because I thought all the other clones were missing a few things, that are present in this game: an external level editor, random level generation support, in-game background drawing (above a city), a nostub program, high game speeds, and eventually calc-to-calc multiplayer through the link. v0.55b update: (Titanium compatibility), and the fade speed was tweaked.

“SkyRacer” is a fun game! I was a great fan of “Sky Race” back in the day, and this game is very faithful to the general gameplay aspects of it. There are minor differences abound, such as how all platforms are at the same level, but they definitely do not affect the gameplay in a negative fashion. This version cleared up a major fade glitch (at least on my Titanium), so there's no reason not to try this game out.

Pros: The controls are fluid and responsive, and the graphics seem to be really good for a calc. The frame rate never slows down, even at the highest speed (which, by the way, I would not recommend if you're a beginner). The backgrounds are a nice touch.

Cons: Sometimes, you spawn right at the edge of a platform, with not enough room to gain enough velocity (you can accelerate in the air, too, but sometimes there just isn't enough room) to reach the next platform. These occurrences are infrequent, but they do happen, especially on the higher levels.

Possible additions: Moving backgrounds would be nice (slowly scrolling as you progress through the track); they seem to be static as of now. A small meter at the edge of the screen showing your progress through the level would be neat too.

Final comments: I can hardly wait for multiplayer. Link-play in this game would make it even better. “SkyRacer” is an amazing game, and, considering that it's still in a sub-1.0 version, it carries a lot of promise.
