Great music and fantastic level design.
Wish this existed for Linux.
Definately worth it if you are looking to spend a few bucks on a good game

Junker. Sure I grabbed this for a couple of cents at some point. The controls are garbage and controllers are barely supported. Tap stick right to turn right, tap stick left to turn left, no point in the direction you want to go. Ships are uninteresting. Look is uninteresting. Sound is uninteresting.

The achivements seem kinda spammy, you can probably rack most of them up just sitting on a power up and shooting at things while the other ships lap you. Don't bother otherwise.

I thoroughly recommend this game. If you are an old-schooler and remember Super Cars (II or III) on Amiga 500 or Micro Machines to a lesser degree, then this is very similar.

It's a very racey shootey 2D-er, with a great challenge and fantastic soundtrack, (the kind of beat beat boom boom boom, I usually only like in video games). If you can pick it up cheap, then do!

You probably won’t give it 100 hours, but if you give it 10 or 20 they will not be boring.

I give it 10 thumbs up (wait, what?).

A bit underrated, this game is sort of a cross between Geometry Wars, F-Zero, and Mario Kart.

It's got some good music, non-stop chaotic action, a good variety of well-balanced ships, and the AI provides a decent challenge (there's MP too). There's also a track editor if you get bored with the 24 default tracks.

It might not be super polished, but it's definitely worth it when it pops up for 75% off.

Are you a fan of retro racing games like Wipeout or F-Zero? Are you a fan of Geometry Wars? If so, buy this game. It's a brilliant little top-down kart-style racer with Geometry Wars-esque ships and graphics and Wipeout-esque weapons. Such a simple concept, and pulled off really well. There's even online multiplayer, so you can vector-obliterate your friends' glowy ships! :D

The game has a few bugs and inconveniences:
- Gamepad doesn't really work. With it plugged in I couldn't race. It gets stuck on the loading screen just before a race.
- Windowed mode isn't recommended. The gameplay will be extremely choppy. Fullscreen is basically required for smooth play.
- You can't do much else if you're playing this game. If you run any other software at the same time that uses your CPU reasonably, this game'll be choppy. It seems a tad poorly coded for such a simple looking game.

That aside, for just under 1 euro (in a sale) you have an amusing little racing game. You have a choice out of various tracks, difficulty, and what type of race you want. You can do a normal race, elimination, survival, or time trial. Multiplayer's possible as well, though I haven't tried it yet. You can also decide which vehicle you want to race in, each have their own pros and cons.

The screenshots of this game pretty much says it all about what the game looks like. You get to be able to shoot at your opponents, after you've driven over those red square thingies. That is the weapon box. The other symbols have various effects like boost, or reducing your speed. You can customize tracks as well, including changing the colors.

I can recommend this game if you see it for cheap in a sale and you happen to like top-down racing games.. It's just that, a little racing game, worth a buck at most.

It's actually a rather fun top-down racer. Like a TRON-flavored R.C. Pro-Am. And since it's all 2D, it runs quite well on just about any laptop.

What a fun little title! This reminds me of the top down game "Micro Machines 64" on the N64. This indy title has all the fun that indy games bring, with none of the annoying issues. All resoloutions are supported, it supports controllers, you can easily rebind the controls, and the online multiplayer works like a charm! I whole heartedly reccomend this game to anyone & everyone. The game has a wonderful soundtrack as well. The soundtrack combined with the visuals makes this game a complete joy to play. ~PR0XIDIAN

Super Laser Racer was a hidden gem in an indie racing pack. Super fun arcade title that brought me back to playing Galaga & Tempest in Windows 3.1 (These are true classics for those who don't know). Loved it. 8/10 for an indie title.

Awesome top-down arcade/combat racer with the visual style of Arcadia and Geometry Wars. Also, just got a HUGE free update which gave it more levels, more music, more awesome, and MULTIPLAYER. One of the best titles for the money :)

A Great top down racer that requires tons of skill to be a top pilot.

If Super Laser Racer were a pair of sneakers, mine would be worn-out, haggard shreds of leather, and I've enjoyed wearing them since they were bright, shiny, and sitting in a box with crumpled up packing paper.

SLC invites you to defeat all of it. It offers enough variety in tracks and levels of difficulty that it was fun to revisit until I'd completed everything.

The game is simple and straight-forward. The controls are relatively decent and you'll never have a tough time figuring out what your objective is (in case you're wondering: WIN THE RACE ;-).

Well balanced overhead racing game. Many cars with different character to choose from. Easy to play right away and fun battling against AI racers. Retro graphics will remind you of arcades from a long time ago.

The Tron version of Atari's Super Sprint with laser sword sounds.
Not bad.

Simple game, but well made. The weapons are well implemented standards, and the racing has more to it than just get the weapons, stay ahead. Each racer has it's own stats, affecting top speed, acceleration, durability, and most interestingly, turning. It makes for an interesting set up, and execution. The best part is that the randomness of the other racers keeps the matches from becoming predictable. Simple, but entertaining, overall.

Remember the old Vectrix games console of the early 1980's?? These guys clearly do! I personally think the graphics in this game are superb and play a huge part in the game's charm. The races are quite challenging, not least because the AI racers are rather ruthless in their use of the available power-ups and aren't afraid to use dirty tricks to get past you. Fantastic game, you really need to have this in your collection!
