    %%^HOT PURSUIT%%^
    Developer: Mike Febus and Gamemaker
    Platform: PC
    Rating: *****

    GAMEPLAY: I found the gameplay for hot pursuit imposible and frustating. On the easiest setting it is next to imposible to win. (execpt for like 2 maps) Why? Because the cpu always starts ahead of you and once the race starts he stays track perfectly, never touching grass and always maintaining optimal speed. So even if you drive perfectly you will never win unless you somehow cheat. This is because the way its made, is that each car is givin a way point around the track, similar to using guides in flash. It would be beter if there were an AI but alas it's Gamemaker.
    The walls around the course are not only annoying but an eyesore. They make your car stop and almost makes you bounce back. It almost feels sticky. Also the graphics could have been beter. (even for gamemaker) Another thing about the walls is how they are placed in block form, which makes a bug posible where you get stuck a tiny bit between two of the blocks. Very irritating.

    VARITY: The choice of color for the cars is a nice touch, but it really could use more starter car sprites. The map varity is well done.

    EXTRAS: The game contains some notible extras including a playable soundtrack, and cheatcodes. Aswell as a practice mode and arcade mode. Almost all very well done.
    The soundtrack did not work for me at all. Even after clicking play up in the top corner. It just didn't work.
    The cheatcodes were somewhat pointless. Maybe I wasn't looking hard enough but there is not hints to the cheats what so ever. I'm sure the cheats are obvious and could be found after several guesses, but I'd rather not take the time.
    The practice mode was nice only it didn't have anyother map choises other then the one given.

    CHEATS
    Enter these cheatcodes at the career mode start screen.
    -jackpot-10000 Cash
    -lolomgwtfbbq-All the car paint jobs
    -sheep ftw-Computer Car turns into a sheep
    -trophy case-+10 Wins
    All codes are case sensitive.

    BUGS
    >Sometimes after playing a game the engine noise will stay on even at the start screen
    >Getting stuck inbetween the colider blocks
    > Unexplained closing of game.

    SUGESTIONS
    >Add boost tiles of somesort in the road to give a small boost of nitro.
    >Add obsticles. Ex. Dear crossing the road, Train crossings etc.
    >More starting car sprites.
    >A less difficult CPU.
    >Away to win access to cheats. (if there isn't already)


    Overview:
    Though this game has some major tweeking to do, It is still a very good first/second game maker game. Gamemaker games can be expected to crash, often, and arn't meant for quality but for simplicity. I can see multiplayer being fun.
    Pros:---------------------------Cons:
    -Easy Controls---------------------Near imposible
    -Smooth Clean Graphics-------------Only 1 car pickture
    -Would be fun on 2 player------------No music/none that works
