Outrun the man in your prototype Turbocycle by day, take to the skies to shoot down monsters by night!

Several fixes and QOL updates! Thanks so much to everyone who's played Turbo Jetrunner. I'm humbled by how many people have played, ashamed to have subjected so many to my cheezy guitar solo, and astounded by the high scores I've seen! The improvements are all suggestions from players. If there's anything you'd like to see fixed, changed, or added, please reach out! I can't guarantee when or if it'll be implemented, but I read and consider everything. FIXES:
  • Bombs now do full damage when the Jetrunner has the double shot upgrade
  • Level indicator no longer increments when timing out on the Turbocycle
  • All Turbocycle challenge mode! Try "Turbo Time Trials" and go for the fastest time across all six Turbocycle levels, back to back!
  • Practice mode now lets you select a Turbocycle/Jetrunner level pair to loop through forever. Practice those tricky parts on repeat!
  • Quickly restart the current level by briefly holding Backspace/Select (this will reset your score to 0) and quickly return to the main menu by briefly holding Enter/Start.

To generate AP in the Jetrunner, shoot enemies - every bullet that hits generates AP. Turbo Jetrunner is a solo project, originally made in two weeks for the #Noticeme Game Jam. All design, programming, art, and audio by me. Uses two fonts by Brian Kent, Upheaval and Edit Undo.
