Reckless Drivin' Updated
10:54 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

An update was recently released for the destructively fun shareware game, Reckless Drivin'. Reckless Drivin' is a 2D driving game, in which the player races to the end of the level, destroying as much as they can along the way. There are also many powerups to pick up along the way, including mines and missiles.

Here's a complete description of the game:

Reckless Drivin' is a new action game for the Mac written by Jonas Echterhoff. Its gameplay is similar to its 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.

The latest patch to Reckless Drivin' just fixes a rare bug that occurred when players were being followed by cop cars, so everyone may not need it. Follow the link provided below for more information on Reckless drivin'.
