      Anybody play Canvas Rider here?
      I ran across it by accident after installing Google Chrome on my work PC and seeing the "aps" thing.. and then looking for free games I ran across it.
      I guess the simplest description is Line Rider but instead of a sled that's just sliding along out of your control, you control a guy on a bicycle... and you can add checkpoints, gravity changes, bombs.. and it is timed.
      It's so dang simple, yet I find it very enjoyable.
      Making tracks is about as simple as possible.
      You can literally make a playable track in twenty seconds (but it will be very short and probably suck..lol).

      (random Canvas Rider pic)



      fwiw- I am TROMATIZED on the canvas rider server.
      I uploaded my first track the other day- VOLCANO.

      Played Line Rider for a couple days... grew bored of it. So I've never wanted to play this game.

      It's MUCH better.
      Seriously.
      I also hated Line Rider.
      just try it.

      Line Rider is not a game.. it's an exhibition.
      Canvas Rider is actually a game.
      Tho some of the tracks/levels or nothing more than Line Rider types where you just watch what happens to your rider (don't understand these.. or why they get so many thumbs up).
      It really is like reduced video games.. reduced down to the basics like an old NES game.
      First you play a level to see it and try and just finish.
      Then you try and beat the top times.
      You can click on the top times names and see their actual plays -like a ghost car in racing games. So then you can try and keep up and get pissed off.

      It's pretty fun. For some reason though, it lags on some tracks. I guess my computer can't handle 2d lines.

      Are you playing full screen?
      Just play using the small screen.
      My old pentium D (1st gen dual CPU) PC at works works fine like that.
      It's flash based graphics- so it is 100% CPU ran.

      Oh- and the white circle/dot is "slow mo" for a few seconds.
      If that is what you ran across.

      Try this track.

      http://canvasrider.com/tracks/873010

      I had the fastest time for a while.
      And this (short) one really shows how gravity can affect the game.
      (just one slight gravity change, but it messes with your mind)

      Oh, and here is my level. It's not easy... well just the first jump can be tricky, and last flip jump are hard/seemingly random.

      Best I could do on the first map was 8.2

      Best I could do on your map was 28.1..

      That's good.

      It's an odd game.
      Speed means more than just flooring it all the time.
      On that track- letting off the throttle just right before the jump means less time wasted in the air and hitting the landing with no room to spare.

      (and I know my 1st track is not exactly great... no need to be overly nice)

      And you need to register to have your times recorded (and in the records).

      8.0


      The Construction zone flip turn/jump really got me stumped for a while. It's a pretty good first map. Also, the random hot air balloon?!?!

      I just booted up my old P4 2.2 machine (typing on it now- still waiting for cheap 3.06 P4 chip I bought off of ebay).
      And the track size seems to make a huge difference in speed.
      The small 1st track works great, but bigger K tracks are stupid slow.
      Do not go full screen.

      Damn. I tried and tried with your ghost ride.. and have no idea how you got past the first jump that low (which allowed for your quick time).

      Did you notice that little wheelie I did on the ramp?

      So you used some crazy password to make sure nobody hacks your canvas rider account? ok....

      And I got 7.9 seconds... I can actually do better than you until the 1st jump landing, and then I don't hit the little jumps smoothly for some reason.

      I believe a 7.7 is possible on that track.

      Canvas Rider is free and works on old PCs.
      Not sure how that PC version of ModNation Racers relates.

      (tho it does look like fun )

      Dam a river! Stop that water from flowing!

      I tied you at 7.8 seconds.. but it lists me second.
      At least my ride haz more stylez.
      I wish it showed more digits.

      Damn my inability to remember my password (and the inability to receive a new one).


      That new track was screwing with me until I realized I didn't have to do the whole thing.


      Edit: New track record (unofficial...) 7.6 Found a better way to do the first jump.

      You glitched somehow on that 5.5 run.
      You hit the line with your body before hitting the finish circle.

      I actually hit it with my head first (which stopped the time) but it kept going. The collision detection is weird.

      IDK.. your bike is below the line.. so I just don't see how it gave you that finish without showing you dead first.

      It detects collisions from the upper body(stomach/chest/shoulders/head)/bike frame/wheels. So there is a space from the handlebars back to the main body of the character, where it's free.


      The finish bubble has ~1mm of extra hit detection space.



      Of course, I could be wrong.



      So I pretty much got skewered at the end of the run.

      Just did a simple track in one sitting.

      http://canvasrider.com/tracks/883968

      But I ended up having to add a bunch of lines to get the track big enough to be uploaded.
      Still, it's just 2k.
      So it should work good on old PCs.
      I did it on my old P4 Dell... and for some reason when making the track it acted like I always had the button clicked (making it a real pain). Anybody know what would cause that?
      That also messed me up when I was trying to get an image for the track link (main track page).

      ... I see you couldn't finish that short easy track.

      And I am actually working on a cool track.. very original, no vertical or horizontal or straight lines at all...
