Unfortunately there are no videos of game play online that I could find and I've still not reinstalled my video capture application since my 6 month old M.2 SSD broke down the other week (Amazon refunded me the cost, but I lost some data that is unrecoverable). If I get time I'll install the program then capture some game play footage and upload it y You Tube, but it's unlikely as I'm in the early stages of helping with a new modification for Battlefield 2 which is already demanding a lot of my spare time. To anyone still playing Battlefield 2; the mod is fast becoming one of my favourite Battlefield 2 modifications and is in my opinion one of the best I've ever played (and I've more or less played every one since the game was released 16 years ago; unfortunately, I'm not at liberty to disclose anything details until it's released. I will post some information and images in the forums when I'm allowed). Battlefield 2 together with it's two earlier compatriots and Men of Valor are my all-time favourite FPS games and still play all four games regularly despite their age (16 to 19 years) and despite more recent released FPS games looking far better graphically, apart from maybe ArmA 3, which is another favourite of mine. I'm actually in the process of building a dedicated server for one of the games so that friends can play online with me, (Men of Valor)

Introduction:
Rockcar is a 2D football game for two in which you control radio-controlled cars. The whole gameplay resembles a real football game, but with elements of survival racing, the main task is to score as many goals as possible into the opponent's goal in order to get the highest score. Choose the car you like and go with your friend to the dynamic game.

Reference accessed HERE 2nd July 2021.
The Game:
Rockcar is a 2D physics based game for two local players; playing a football game where the players use vehicles instead of footballers to hit the ball. The ball physics are reasonable, though the ball movement feels a little sluggish/Slo-Mo. The aim of the game is to score goals against your opponent by manoeuvring you car, or moving your opponents car out of the way, by flipping them. The default controls for each player are as follows:

Player One - Red Car::
Q = rotate Left
E = Rotate Right
A = Drive Left
D = Drive Right
Space = Jump/flip


Player 2 - Blue Car:
U = rotate Left
O = Rotate Right
J = Drive Left
L = Drive Right
Shift = Jump/flip


Apart from Red or Blue you can change the colour of each vehicle to Crimson, Purple, and Aquamarine. You can also change the vehicle (default racing car) to a truck cab from Grey to Pink, Aquamarine or Mauve using the left or right arrows located next to the vehicles from the main game menu (see the fourth image above). You can change the match time from 1, 2 or 3 minutes of game play; and, there are also three backgrounds you can use i.e. a white background, an empty stadium or a full stadium at night with the moon. When restarting the game it always defaults to the original two vehicles, red and blue, with the empty stadium and two minute game play. Unfortunately you cannot change the key bindings or use a hand held controller; though this may be possible if you use one of those conversion programs such as AntiMicro, and I believe it's possible to map controller buttons to keyboard controls via HERE?

If you are able to connect two keyboards to your computer it would be easier for the two player game to progress and be more enjoyable. If you have left and right handed players but only one keyboard, the right handed player would be more suited to playing the player one position as this would give players a little more room on a single keyboard (see key bindings above).

Each game is timed and the aim is to score as many goals as you can within the time, which cunts down from one, two or three minutes, depending on which you've chosen via the set up menu (see fourth image). If at the end of the match you are drawn , the match goes into an over time (OT) round called Golden Goal. The first player to score in this round wins the match.
Conclusion:
Rockcar is definitely a playable game, but I do think it relies a lot on luck due to the sometimes random movement/bouncing of the ball physics. I also felt the ball was too sluggish at times. Still in short doses; for example, during a coffee/tea break, it would be an ideal and fun accompaniment to your break. It's not a game I personally could play for more than 10 minutes at a time (I will be keeping it) and as already mentioned by Huh below, I don't think it's worth $5 when not being given away for free because you can get similar online browser games to play via many free browser game sites that include more variety with respect to game play.

The game could be improved if an high score table was included that kept a record of the best scores and who won matches, and include additional modes added, such as a top down version, much like the old game of Subbuteo where you could bounce the ball off non player vehicles that randomly move around the field. Also for the 2D version include a wider variety of vehicles and maybe even be able to customise them via a separate screen.

The game defaults to a windowed mode with no option to put the game in full screen. However, you can adjust the window to fill the screen and make it fit whatever shape of monitor you have by dragging the corners of the window, like any standard window on your desktop.
Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game and it found zero hits from 58 antimalware engines. The downloaded executable may include some low level adware that only opens your browser to Falcoware's home page after the game has installed and places four shortcuts onto your desktop (which can be safely deleted once the game has installed). The installation does not inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to Falcoware's home page when the game has been installed, it earns Falcoware games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away free. You can see the results of the scan via the following link:

Other Free Games:
The latest free game from Epic is The Spectrum Retreat - a challenging, first-person puzzle game set in the near future. You awake at The Penrose hotel, a peaceful yet unsettling refuge from the outside world. As a valued guest, your existence is embedded into the corridors and guest rooms of The Penrose and will be availbe to add to your Epic account until Thursday 8th July at 4pm UK time/11am EST.
Two more games will then be given away called Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead (looks great) which combines the legendary and challenging puzzle gameplay of Bridge Constructor™ with the post-apocalyptic zombie universe of AMC’s The Walking Dead and Ironcast that was Inspired by Victorian-era science fiction writers such as H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, Ironcast is set in an exciting alternative history; a time when refined men and women in top hats and bonnets commanded gigantic walking war machines, laying waste to the enemies of the British Empire! Take control of a 7 meter tall walking vehicle called an Ironcast and face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880's Victorian England. The game is one of my favourite versions of a match three game where creating matches gives you chances to beat your AI opponent. I already have this game on Steam and love it. It has mainly positive reviews. These will be available to add to your EPIC games library from Thursday the 8th July to Thursday 15th July at 4pm UK time/11am EST when a new set of games will be available to add to your account. Since Epic Games started to give away games I've accumulated over 270 games not counting duplicates, most of which are either AAA or high end indie arcade games.

Also from Epic, If you play online with friends there are several free online games for example there 's a decent PvE/PvP FPS game called Scavengers with a coop mode (I checked it out recently and it looks fantastic as well as plays well) and you can still get the clicker RPG Idle Champions. I've posted some details about Idle Champions over in the forums HERE, where you'll also find links to a Reddit page where you can pick up codes to redeem chests for free that give you various buffs and other items to add to your account that boost your heroes abilities and health as well as affect your group of heroes in game, for example potions that boost health or DPS, contracts that can improve armour or weapons already used by the heroes or other contracts that add specific amounts of gold to your bank as well as items of jewellery, armour or weapons that buff your characters stats. I've stopped playing the game simply because it was too addicting.

Please see Delenn's threads for Steam and Non Steam freebies HERE and HERE respectively. Delenn has been updating these regularly for years now. It’s worth adding these links to your favourites and checking regularly for available freebies. Most are only free for a specific time. If you miss the deadline you’ll miss out. Once added to your account, it’s yours to keep. Delenn has recently posted details of more Steam games that are temporarily free. One may be until it leaves early access??? - i.e. Tower Ball - Incremental Tower Défense plus a reflex game called Keyboard Killers are still free. Delenn posted details of a free origin came called Battlefield 4 which is available for free if you have an Amazon Prime account (If you like FPS games, it's a brilliant game to own. (not sure if it's still live).


You'll find hundreds of freeware games of all arcade and indie genres on Itch.io and Caimans Games as well as other sources. Please do check out the game discussion forums for older posts HERE (the sticky section is useful). Many of the earlier posts may be out of date with respect to the links I and others have provided to the free games; however, you only need to know the name of the game to find most of them via other sources. Many of those games from 2008 to around 2017 were posted as part of a project to supplement the lack of weekday games when the game giveaway went to weekend only games around Easter 2008 (mainly instigated due to the financial crisis of 2008) until November 2018 when Falcoware stepped into the weekday slot; however, from around 2015 onwards we did start to get the occasional Steam key for various games offered as limited giveaways, with a restriction on the number of keys available (anywhere from 25 to 2000+). These included over 60 decent AAA games and indie arcade games ; for example some of the better AAA games included , lucky Warhammer: Vermintide 1 & 2 plus DLC for version 2; Dreadlands, Mount & Blade: Warband, Immortal Unchained and Conan Exiles.


The Indie Gala developers freebies are available HERE (latest additions) and HERE (81 games in the Showcase, most full versions).

Charmed Kingdom, Adam Wolfe (Complete Edition), Doodle Devil, Deep Space Anomaly and the latest addition Kick Ass Commandos; plus, many more in the showcase section HERE and the Freebies section HERE.

The concept looks like "Blobby Volley", a simple game from 2006. No install.

Siri Kid,

Hi Siri Kid, yes the game play is virtually the same except you have to keep the ball in the air with each of the two online players pushing the ball over the net instead of trying to get it in the opponents net.

Today's game does have some configurability such as changing the background, or the vehicle as well as increasing or decreasing the time to play each round and even change the colour of the two vehicles.

this game is a joke for 5 usd, however for giveaway may be fun even for single player...the description is misleading, this is not soccer and not car racing...
you hit the ball with your car to get it in enemy area or defend your area...
you can still accidently get the ball in your own area as it bounces around...my final trial score was10-3 even so the enemy was not moving cuz i played single

you have a timer to get the ball in, but is not too demanding

problems: started in full screen and i could not see the cars,
solved by minimize window wich oddly enough allowed me to see what is going on https://prnt.sc/180bgjd

what to improve...forget the faces/ppl in gallery in presentation, is best to keep gallery empty just like in the game

add some obstacles/bricks to brake to make it harder to score goals

perhaps even a power up for enemy when the enemy scores to make it more interesting for single player

consider other things for single player too, perhaps better ricochet dinamics

conclusion: is a very simple game that might not be worth keeping as it takes 80mb setup and about 188mb installed, it may be good for phone users or small kids but you'll probably grow bored of it pretty fast

as is now, it needs to be smaller that way you could get it on a usb with you and you'll likely only play it when you need a quick distraction since you will not feel bad to end it at any time to go away

depending on how you play/hit the ball it can be fun even in single play

ps. i'm using the arrow keys to play and review it, but i suppose you can choose whatever car/controls fancy you better

huh, oh and sometimes the voice yells "saved" even so is "goal" but that's not too annoying...perhaps add option to select if we want voice/music/our own music and so on too,
anyway, considering other games given away here may give tons of errors or eat more computer resources this one is a good one, thumbs up and hope will improve further

Reply   |   Comment by huh  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

huh, for different experience you may experiment with changing cars for both you and enemy, i just got a 4-7 win without trying to let the enemy win, and that's pretty balanced considering the other side was idle

so to update what i said above, the game needs improved dynamics when when enemy has bigger car as per printscreen and we have small car...i was expecting to be harder to pass a bigger car which is why i select that for the idle enemy

of course if you are adventurous you can try play both cars by yourself :)))

huh,

Thank you for taking the time to post your excellent feedback Huh; appreciated. Over 52MB of the file size is taken up by a text document that has no reason for being included in the installed game.

Whiterabbit-uk, that is absolutely helpful to know and delete, further more makes it a mystery why i can't play Kruozent Castle Mystery hence it has a similar useless file so i'm guessing they are using the same or similar developer tools, but i see plenty complain about that other one

Reply   |   Comment by huh  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

huh,

Another community member mentioned the Text file some weeks ago and suggested that it was to pad out the download size to make it appear more substantial w.r.t. game content.

It makes no sense to me. I've used the basic document readers WordPad and basic text readers to see what the document contains. It's unreadable and looks like an encrypted document I used to deal with when I was in the Royal Corps of Signals during my army days, that appears gibberish but may require the right program to decrypt it..

huh,

I've deleted your duplicate comment.

I agree regarding your comment about programmers. Since cheap game engine became easily available (that are basically plug and play type engines where you require no or very little programming skills) via platforms like Steam and in some cases basic versions of commercial game engines that are free, but can cost a small fortune if you want all the extra paid for content; for example, the latest version of RPG Maker MZ , which already has over 200 DLC packs released since the engine was released on Steam last year, and which would cost thousands if you purchased all of the content.

Unfortunately, this has led to the release of many unfinished or poorly designed games that have risen almost exponentially over the last decade; especially from bedroom based 'wannabe' developers and in some cases rip off merchants. I've seen games on Steam that barely work or include just one level that takes minutes to complete, yet are still being sold (mostly to game collectors, who don't even bother to play the games). That said, there are also some fantastic games created with these cheap engines, where you can immediately see that the developer/programmer has put a massive effort into making a decent game.

Overall I do think todays game comes under the category of a caring developer as there are some options to choose from. Okay, it's a very simple game with a simple concept that I personally used to play on my teleprinter, while servicing it (while I was with the Signals Corp as a Terminal Equipment Technician playing football with the return key trying to score a goal by pressing the o key while the carriage return had been pressed and trying to get it between two I's spaced a few lines apart. :)

p.s. the last version of RPG Maker MV (released 2015) has over 460 DLC packs which when not on sale (the basic engine is on sale at 75% off at the moment costing just over £15) cost between several pounds to almost thirty pounds each and to buy all of them would cost you several thousand.

Whiterabbit-uk, generally speaking, i'm not sure what is the point to collect a game if not playing it and not playable but i suppose we can find some reasons for it too, anyway this game is playable

indeed, some can't wait to get their engines when off sale or even as free giveaways, but at least ask reasonable prices, after all many small sales may come out better than no big sale...

hmm, maybe i'm wrong since you seem to imply there are plenty bulk blind buyers and they mainly target those..if so i should start making my own games asap too :)))

to be honest i did see that txt file a while ago too, but i let it be after i opened it and seen it gibberish/encrypted cuz i thought its there to hide some game art or items...
which for anime based games and *cough* *cough* *cough* related or more or less similar content may actually make sense, but for this game it doesn't make sense to hide the art in such painful ways anyway...
however they are free to encrypt some items especially the faces of those in the gallery :))) if they encrypt them well, perhaps i can unsee what i have seen :)))

after all said and done, space is the final frontier and is a sin to waste it with filler useless text files...judging from that file name it should have been smaller but grew bigger and bigger
:)

if they want to save/make money are they not afraid they will one day pay for bandwidth cuz they forgot to remove it? :) one does not always have others to host for them, one must one day host for themselves and pay dearly for it :)

insist to beef it up? at least put something as developer or customer may find useful such a walk-through with many print-screens when games are too tricky/complicated or a demo of your other games or something some users may need to install to avoid compatibility or playing issues and so on and so forth...as example now i can play that castle even so i'm stuck on the trap after feeding the bird in level 3...can't help think "what if the free files i got from internet to make it work were included with the game instead of that useless txt file"

huh,

I think the game collecting is a form of addiction, as well as trying to be the number one collector either in the world, or in your country; for example, I noted several years ago that some of my Steam friends were running several games all at once, then you'd see the number of hours played in their profiles amounting to several hundreds of hours over a two week period. I was curious about this; especially when one Steam friend accrued over 1000 hours of game play within the two weeks. As their is only 168 hours in a week, it would be impossible to play over 1000 hours in two weeks; so I did some background research by looking at a site that recorded Steam users behaviour and found many community member who had literally played millions of hours of game play. If you worked out that the time spent with just one million hours, comes to over 114 years. Steam only came into being 18 years ago, so these community member must be running hundreds of games 24/7 for some unknown reason; well probably trying to get to the number one spot on the list. This site (actually there are several that record Steam statistics) includes lots of number one stats such as those who have collected the most amount of achievements, the most fully completed games the most Steam levels (you get levels for buying games, as well as completing various Steam quests such as collecting sets of Steam trading cards. Yes it all seems pointless. (even me doing the research, lol)

As for making money by creating or churning out lots of short often pointless games using cheap or even free game engines; if you are willing to take the step and also invest time and money in the game, because you do have to pay a small fee {around £150 or approx' $200} for having your game put on Steam and it has to sell a certain number of games over a specific period for it to remain in the store (as Valve have to make their profit)

:)
