Nice little title. Solid graphics, catchy tune.

As for nucrunch, if used as intended by just crunching the data that's actually used, it comes out at a mere 19 blocks :)
nucrunch -xIo madrace_nc.prg -j 0x0810 chunk_0.prg chunk_1.prg chunk_2.prg chunk_3.prg chunk_4.prg chunk_5.prg

0x0810-0x1ac0:  4786 bytes read from chunk_0.prg
0x6400-0x6800:  1026 bytes read from chunk_1.prg
0x8000-0x8400:  1026 bytes read from chunk_2.prg
0x8c00-0x9000:  1026 bytes read from chunk_3.prg
0xb000-0xb400:  1026 bytes read from chunk_4.prg
0xc000-0xcee5:  3815 bytes read from chunk_5.prg
0x0801-0x1a25:  4646 bytes written to madrace_nc.prg

Apologies for the unintuitive default on the -I flag…

some more control of vehicle would be nice (how about brakes or go closer to left/right border)

but overall, nice lil game!

Confirmed, nucrunch -I does the trick. (sei/cli is used)

Ok, I take it back, it's actually a "feature" in nucrunch, it does this
080D  A9 7F     LDA #$7F
080F  8D 0D DC  STA $DC0D

as first instruction, without resetting it on exit.
If using normal SEI/CLI there wouldn't be any problems =)

Of course it's a consequence of nucrunch leaving some dirty memory, but as I said, it means that the game is using some low mem address without initializing it first before using it.

Hi Ian, that behavior does not happen in the uncompressed version, so I understand that it is a consequence of the nucruch. Or it may be that when trying to cheat the program, if it no decreases the energy, it never reaches the end of the game.
Send me if you want that version to investigate and thank you for testing the game.

201 blocks for this simple game seemed too many, and infact crunches to a mere 21blocks with exomizer, and 24 with nucrunch.
Involuntary trainer found by just crunching it with nucrunch: the collisions seem to never decrease the power gauge, meaning the game doesn't set correctly all its variables at start, relying on some uninited location for it.
