Anyhow, you might skip this section to game objective below if you have not interesting in how I’m creating the game. This game was created using jQuery library, with help of underscore.js library for object template binding, and some Object-oriented programming (OOP) concept in creating those cars in the game.

This game use parallax backgrounds effects, multiple backgrounds are moving in different speeds. Also, the cars animation was created using image sprites with slightly different in FPS, the rest part was just events handler for actions. Of course, you might go through the JavaScript files if you find it interesting!
