What is Nort X?

Nort is basically a lightcycles game for two people. Therefore what you do is ride a little motorbike (not a car), which leaves little trails, around a little arena,  while your opponent does the same thing. The bikes are controlled by pressing the appropriate key to move in the desired direction. The trick to the game is that you cannot ride into the trails that you or your opponent have left. In addition, you can define a number of obstacles which will be randomly placed in the arena, which you also cannot ride into (however, you can ride on top of them, but this is rather pointless).

Randomly placed around the arena in each round are a number of things which can be picked up. These pickups are either red, green, or something else. The red pickups will affect the red player when used, and the green pickups will affect the green player. The missle will blow a hole in the trail directly in front of the player that uses it. The 'U' uses the latest pickup of the opposing player. The 'P' creates a set pf new pickups, removing the old ones.  When the 'use pickup' key is pressed, the last thing that was picked up will be used.

 

Pickups

Wall: builds a purple wall in front of corresponding colour (walls cannot be destroyed by missles)
Nitro Boost: makes corresponding colour go faster for the rest of the round
Jumper: makes corresponding colour jump:- the beam will turn yellow (both players can ride through yellow trails), and the player will not be able to steer
Reversi: reverses the controls of the corresponding colour
Teleport: teleports the corresponding colour
