Physics of Racing is a homebrew project of programming a racing game in 3D for the Nintendo DS. The development began with a simple sprite that moved a little, then became 3D version version that controls a Porsche 911 GT1.

The latest version is driving a Ferrari F40 on the grounds of Laguna Seca.

Features

  • 3D integrated into the vehicle.
  • Circuit and unfinished game mode.
  • Good response to commands (accelerate, turn, etc).

User guide

Drive a Ferrari F40 on the grounds of Laguna Seca. You can enjoy the Corkscrew of Laguna Seca and the rest of the track with all it's up and downs.

No collision with the walls, no change of speed or traction on dirt, so do not have to stay on track.

There is no drifts, only slight over steer if use brake.

Framerate goes down if there are many collision detections, mainly at the last corner.
