The Race.
When they said they were going to make it easier they weren't joking.

I was expecting to only be able to collect a few more coins than before, and maybe have a bit more leniency on execution but this is absurdly easy. I'd honestly rather have the old race back, at the very least on higher difficulties so that there's still a challenge in it.

That race was notorious but it was great because of that, it feels like a letdown honestly.

Still; I'm just glad JnG finally got past steam greenlight--it deserved much more attention and success.

All they did was just let you take a few more hits before dying... I just did the Race on Hard and believe me it gets intense.
Hm. Sounds like an easy start but harder in later runs... that was the only level I sometimes hated back then. I am curious how it plays now.
Does it still speed up? Because I remember that's the part that really made it killer. It didn't happen for me, but that might be because I'm starting on lower difficulty.

Yeah, it speed up around 3 times on hard I think.

I can confirm we only raised hit point of your ship a little. So you won't die as fast when scratching those gates while rushing through them. Otherwise it's the old race level. Maybe your reflexes just get better with aging (unlike for most of us ;) ).

Rake in Grass headquarters, Prague, 1:55 P.M.:

undead: Hey, what did you change in the race level? Did you fiddle with anything but the ship's HP? People are complaining it's too easy.

JP: I? No! I did nothing. I thought you change it!

undead: What? You were testing the thing and whining about it. I thought you change it! I changed nothing.

JP: Neither did I.

Good news everyone! You actually have the good old race level in the game. Enjoy the pain! I'll just go to catch my breath, cause I'm still laughing.

Oh, thank you. I guess... I can feel the pain already. :D

Hello race level my old friend
I still think this game is hard as balls

I still haven't completely understood on why people have said that the race level has been too hard. It's one of my favourite levels and it never felt like it was too hard, nor really even hard. At what difficulty does it get hard?

Ha-ha-ha! I can't stop laughing. Thanks god I done with race level. Took me about a hour of trying. Good result, I think.

I was waiting for the race level to get hard, then it was already over. Never really got what the fuzz was about, some other levels on the other hand with all the explosions and effects going on everywere.

I am not sure, if the HP of the ship is higher that in the old days or not... at least it feels that way. We'll see how it feels in a later run with higher difficulty ;-)
