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.


Release Notes:

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.

Review by Thomas Mollet

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.
