Cyclomaniacs racers is now in alpha testing, we are basically looking for bugs and tweaking the gameplay.
The new game contains this time 45 characters a quick race mode and the campaign mode. Campaign mode is very much like the old cyclo, play a series of races etc. The quick race mode is a much more imediate system where you can jump in for a quick play without all the achievements and having to play for ages. Its meant to be a quick "fix" rather than a long play game.
The other big feature for cyclo 2 is the new ai ! There isnt any, all the racers are real racers we record into the game, everytime a registered user completes a track their race data gets saved into a database so you can play against your friends.
We also have special bells in this one, you can choose a bell you use in your race which when you use it will give you bike extra powers, like extra boost, jump while in the air, heavy (makes you fall faster), this adds a lot of scope for different strategies for each track.
Check back soon for more updates as we release new versions.
If you would like to help out testing on the game register and we will send you an email and mark your account as an official tester.
