Yesterday, I’ve come across this mini flash project/game: Line Rider. It has excellent physics and it’s really great fun to play with.
Don’t be surprised if this game becomes a cult hit. What’s more, lots of people has uploaded their best runs to Youtube.
Naturally, when something good comes out people try to improve it even more. We then start to see the modified versions all around.
This modified version makes four major additions to the original game: 1) An eraser tool that lets you remove individual line segments. 2) A flag tool that lets you set a particular position (and vector) for the sledder to start his run at, handy if you have a five-minute run and want to test something toward the end without watching the whole thing over again. 3) Accelerator lines, which appear red and make the led speed up and even sled uphill, great for loops and jumps. 4) A “background line” tools that lets you draw lines that don’t affect the sledder.
Let the ride begin!
