Reckless Drivin' 1.4 Released
11:35 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Reckless Drivin' author Jonas Echterhoff wrote in to IMG to let us know that he has released a new version of the popular action game, bring it to version 1.4. The new version includes gamepad support under OS X and also adds force feedback support using the MacAlly iShock II.

Echterhoff offered up a description of the game:

Reckless Drivin' is a new action game for the Mac. It's gameplay is similar to it's predecessor, Burning Rubber, a Mac shareware game I released in 1996. In Burning Rubber one had to drive a car through 2-dimensional levels as fast as possible, leaving as much destruction as possible on the way. Reckless Drivin' follows the same basic principle, however, it has been completely rewritten from scratch, and it employs a new graphics engine featuring smooth, dynamically zoomed, scrolling 16-bit graphics. The physics simulation has been redesigned to realistically resemble skidding and tire tracks on different road surfaces.
Here's a list of fixes in 1.4
  • Added some support for gamepads under MacOS X using the HID Manager. See the Mac OS X section of the Readme for more info.
  • Added Force-Feedback Support. You can now play Reckless Drivin' using the MacAlly iShock II, which lets you actually *feel* the car skidding and crashing into other cars.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause the game not to remember your track record times.
