Hey guys,

We're proud to present Newgrounds with our first game, Super Drift 3D.

Running on our own 3D engine and physics engine, our mission was to create a proper 3D driving game, with console sized levels and proper 3D handling and physics.

We're huge fans of arcade racers, and we were mainly inspired by Ridge Racer, Daytona, Outrun 2, and Initial D.

For my fellow Flash devs interested in 3D game development, I'm currently in the process of doing a Super Drift 3D making of series, which should hopefully be very useful to some of you - all published on my blog here -

Use the arrow keys to control the car.
Space to reset car.
C to change camera.

Hope you enjoy the game :)


Menu - Avex Trax / Trust / Ayumi Hamasaki

Cherry Mountain - Sugar & Spice / DJ Dougal and DJ Hixxy

Coastal City - Rainbow in the Sky / DJ Paul Elstak

Neon Good Times - Crowd Pleasures / DJSS




Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I'm generally not a fan of driving games, but this was freaking cool! I think the best thing about it is how good the graphics are. I thought I was going to have to do at least three laps in the first round. Then again, I was on the "Easy" mode. It really does remind me of those Gran Turismo games you see in arcades. Dang, I need to go to those more often.

The sounds are pretty authentic too. This is one of the best games I've played that won an Underdog Of The Year award. The 3D certainly stands out. You could have had a better way of telling how the other car(s) were behind you. That may have just been in easy mode.

Really good

I mainly wanted to write this review to say that this had formidable graphics. There are buyable racing games with less great graphics. Especially the 3D stunned me, really wonderful. Those little things like seeing the course below you in the glass floor part of Coastal City and the flower petals in the Cherry mountain course show how much time has gone into this game. I love the big jumps in the courses too.

Everything works fine too, although I would rather have seen that, as soon as you let go of shift, you immediately stop drifting. And I turn around every time on the last jump of the Coastal City course, just a second before the end. But since I haven't heard anyone about it, I guess it's just my bad playing :)
I can't see how you can remain your speed at the three falls in the neon course though. Sometimes I start at 100MPH, go to 160 by falling and immediately after I land go to 65MPH.
At another try I do exactly the same, and end with 105MPH.

Nonetheless, I'm very addicted to this game, and I can almost draw the map of neon good times purely on memory now, knowing in what corners I have to drift to get through, and what corners I can just drive through. You delivered a great piece of work.

P.S.: I'm really frustrated because, no matter how much I try, I can't get under 1:10 in Cherry Mountain.

Very nice!

Game's a lot of fun, upbeat soundtrack and great 3d graphics!! Always surprised to see this kind of stuff in Flash :D The controls feel a bit loose but that's probably more because I've gone and let myself get used to analog sticks ;) I haven't been pure to my digital roots!

The music is fantastic, too - the Coastal City music in particular reminds me of the classics.. Daytona USA - rolllliiiiing staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaart!!

Fun game, although I'm horrible at it. It really brought me back to my youth of late SNES-early PS1 days.
It really reminds me of Ridge Racer. Good job!

Very good game!!

You have a very, very good game engine here, with nice collision detection and good texture mapping. I think that you should work on it a little more and utilize the engine in other types of game genres. I think the engine would work exceedingly well for a first-person shooter or a 3D adventure game. I think you should do games like Mega Man Legends and Duke Nukem 3D with this engine, as I think they'll benefit from it more than a racing game would. However, I have qualms. The controls are a bit slippery and that makes it hard to control your car, and it was far too easy to get in front of the car you're racing against, so some tweaking on the artificial intelligence would be in order. I also think that the sound was far too sparse and clinical, so maybe some extra sound effects such as crashing, tire-screeching and bumping for when you tap the car next to you. Otherwise, a very promising game. I look forward to seeing more from you and your team.
