Crazy Kart 2 being ported to iPhone


French game developer Int13 has revealed that it has successfully begun porting its Crazy Kart 2 racing game over to the iPhone and iPod touch platform. The game, which appears to be a clone of Nintendo’s Mario Kart series, features a 320x320 playing area, a virtual steering wheel touch control, 3 vehicle classes, 6 different characters, downloadable content, and Wi-Fi online multiplayer. The company said of the release, “Thanks to it’s simplified controls and flexible camera system it was not too hard to adapt it’s interface for the iPhone touch screen, but we’re still evaluating alternatives (like tilt control and landscape display).” On the iPhone’s graphics prowess, they added, “The game is perfectly smooth on the iPhone : constant 60 FPS with a pure software engine, we already plan to work on a sequel with a full 3D accelerated engine to exploit the full potential of the device.” No exact release date has yet been set, but the company is aiming for a July debut.

I don’t understand the need for a steering wheel. We all saw how Apple demonstrated the 3-way accelerometer last week.

Anyway, this probably isn’t the final version. I hope they ditch the steering wheel and switch to landscape viewing.

Perhaps this example is not using the accelerometers but is being controlled by sliding your finger on the steering wheel .... note the little bubble on the wheel
