Thanks for the feedback everybody! I will now be attempting to put curves in the road. Also, do you think that I should put forks in the road that determine your path?

EDIT: oh, sorry I forgot to answer your question Builderboy. Yes, I think it probably will be how hills will look in the final version, unless I am able to figure out something that looks better.

This looks really nice. I like how you put pixels on road sides, because when moving close to the road border, it doesn't look as weird as without them.

I think you should put a black horizontal line in the horizon and maybe have the horizon be able to go higher.

Alright, an update.
It looks like it will not be fast enough for grayscale, and I don't want it in monochrome, so I'm putting this on hold, and most likely will not be finishing it (unless I find some way to resolve speed issues).

To be honest, I haven't updated much at all since the last demo, at least to the actual game. I have instead been doing little tests to see how fast the engine would be with a certain amount of sprites (like drawing four 8 x 8 black sprites for each car,  and 8 or so for scenery, for example).

Are you also going to be jumping over rocks and stuff in it?

Probably not. There isn't that in the original Outrun, so I don't think that it would be necessary here.
