The FAST and the FURRY-ous have arrived!
HoverBoarderZ(HBZ) is a fun retro style racer that will challenge all but the very best.
Play one of four riders: Robbie Duckie, Peggy Rockhopper, Stephen Coolbear, or Taiga Kuuru. Race on a variety of tracks while collecting power-ups and dodging traps. Players obtain various power-up items by riding over item dispensers, which can be used for either offensive or defensive attacks, or to power up the player's hoverboard for a quick turbo boost.
HBZ has 3 ways to play: Keyboard, usb Gamepad, and "Tilt Steer".
Tilt steering utilizes your computer's built in camera and Intel's OpenCV library to create a virtual accelerometer. Through the use of motion tracking, the player can steer by simply tilting to the left or the right.
This version contains our new CamTrack technology. CamTrack turns the user's webcam into a virtual accelerometer that makes it possible to control the game by tilting left or right.

Not worth the money - A simple game such as this would easily be worth the money if the tilt steering worked like it is advertised. In truth, the tilt-steering option is virtually unusable and makes the game impossible. It is unresponsive, jumpy, and slow. Playing the game using a trackpad or mouse is much better, but that takes all the fun out of it! Overall: great idea for a fun simple game, but the best part (the only part that seperates this game from the countless other run-of-the-mill racing games) is ruined. Don't purchase this game; total waste of money.
