This displeases me

I guess its pretty good


That was a very confusing comment, if I don't say so myself. But I just did say so.

Does the game not load for anyone else?


The game loads just fine for me. Check your browser extensions, probably a conflict.

Whoo! That crashed my browser real good.

Miles O'Toothpaste August 28, 2009 2:35 PM

Huh, works fine for me now. Guess that was a fluke.


"Sounds" good, but I ain't got no image. Only sound.

Who said cheap?

Black here too, on Opera and updated flash, what gives?


Well, I for one can't believe that they had a video advertisement with sound before the game. That was annoying.

I started out enjoying the game. Great memories of old racing games.

But why is it that the first level I can turn a corner without losing traction, but I can't even keep up with the normal cars on every level after that? Every corner I have to slow down to almost a stop to keep from sliding off.

And the collision detection is decidedly early-to-mid-90s quality.

What a shame.


I can only base it on music.

And that is decidedly early morning, BBC 2.



Won't load here either.

[Edit: There is still no problem with the game loading that I can see. Have you checked your browser extensions? Tried another browser? -Jay]

I cannot play the game. I have tried Firefox and Internet Explorer and get the same results in both.

I have also tried playing the game from various web pages as well as the link on this page. On some site I see nothing but hear some music. On other sites I can see the welcome and track selection pages, but once I select a track the screen goes black but I can hear new music.

As I said I get exactly the same results for the same page in both Firefox and Internet Explorer.

I don't know what checking browser extensions means for comflict means. In Firefox I have Shockwave Flash


I tried it on FF and Safari on OSX, and on IE through Parallels, and just sound for me too :(


Doesn't work for me either, in IE8, IE7, FF3 or FF2 on vista... sound is there though, just to make it even more frustrating ;-)


Same here. Only audio, then my browser freezes for five seconds and music plays. FF on Linux. Tried Opera too. The loading meter is stuck on 0% throughout.

This seems to be the case with every game on that site for me. Tried other ones at random, including Cyclomaniacs, which plays fine on Kongregate.

I think something is wrong with their loading system.


I only have sound too - Windows XP, Firefox 3.5.2 started in safe mode, with every plug-in except for Flash disabled, Flash Also the same in IE8.


It plays just fine for me, but I'm using IE6 and everyone (JiG, GameNinja, etc.) is showing pop-up boxes saying me I need to upgrade.

Which is kind of ironic, because if I upgrade, I apparently won't be able to play. :)

[Edit: Not true. I am able to load and play the game in both IE8 and Firefox. So, no worries about upgrading. Besides, ditching IE6 will provide 16 meals to a hungry person. -Jay]


I got around the problem by opening the flash directly.


The startup screen loaded fine for me, but when I clicked continue, it went black. I could look at the upgrade screen.
I was using Vista, FF3 and IE 8, Jayisgames website, and Flash 10.

[Edit: You'll have to play it at GameNinja. The links in the review above will take you there. -Jay]
