The view can now be moved by dragging the touch screen. When you do, you'll see that the outside of the tunnel becomes partially transparent to allow you to see all the action!

Credits

Thanks must go to everyone who's contributed to DevKitPro and libnds, particularly the people who implemented the pseudo-OpenGL functions which made writing this demo so easy.

A particular thanks must go to Dovoto who converted the NeHe tutorial demos for use on the DS. Some of the initialisation and texture loading code was taken from these demos. Thanks!
