Hey,
I finally managed to tie all the loose ends together in my Outrun-esque racer. There's only one route, but the controls have some nuance which should make for healthy competition.

I know very little about 3D and projection and stuff, so most of the tech is from this excellent article:

Have fun! And what's your best time?

Looks great and the steering feels good. I'd say it decelerates far too quickly when you let off the gas, though. Letting off the gas here is practically what I'd expect the brakes to do at speed.

Good racing game. It definitely does indeed, as you said, remind me me of the arcade game, "Outrun."

Thanks!

Agree on letting go of the gas. To be honest I wanted to tweak the values, but the code was so old so I decided not to rock the boat. :o

Sweet.

Now we have Rad Racer/Outrun on Pico-8...

This is SO damn good Johan.
Plays just like the original arcade-style racers.

A sweet, petrol-fuelled nostalgia hit! :D

I got:40.95.
That isn't too bad, is it?

I got a really nice feeling playing this - reminded me of playing Super Hang-On in front of the TV as a kid! Very cool.

Cool! The best I've seen is 38.39 s.
Glad you enjoyed it.
