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 - http://rumblesushi3d.com/
?cat=6

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

Hope you enjoy the game :)

Music:

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

Cheers,
Rumblesushi

Drifting is lousy

How can you mess up the drifting this bad when the drifting mechanic is in the title? No amount of practice will save you from the slippery controls, and you can't just go without drifting because the tracks are designed so you can pretty much only win if you drift. The medals aren't worth my time. Seriously, if you have to press space to reset your car, just restart the race because by the time you get going again your opponent will be a mile ahead of you and you'll never get the medals for completion times. The 3D is good though, especially since this is a flash game and it's your own 3D engine. The music is nice too, but it gets old after a while.

To people playing this game, if you're not familiar with racing games I wouldn't recommend this. It's not a pick up and play kind of game, which doesn't make for a good flash game. You're not likely to get the absolutely necessary skill of drifting down without a lot of time invested in the game, time I doubt you'll feel satisfied having invested once it's all said and done.


rumblesushi responds:

Undeniably this is aimed at racing game fans, particularly fans of 90's arcade racers - and it's pretty much the first of it's kind in Flash, thus should be judged accordingly.

In one way you have a point, if you're not familiar with racing games I wouldn't recommend it either, then again I wouldn't recommend your average tower defense game to someone who isn't familiar with tower defense games.

Ultimately you can't please everyone, and making this game more accessible to non racing game fans would have probably made the game less fun for proper race game fans, and the people who don't like racing games still wouldn't like it because, well - they don't like racing games.

The drifting is also no harder than early Ridge series games like Rage Racer, which require VERY precise timing, the main difference is the drifting in this game gives a significant speed boost, which takes some getting used to.

Controls suck

Graphics are good and the music is ok but can be annoying.

The thing that kills it is the really jerky controls which need a sensitivity option for players to adjust.

I'm sorry, I wanted to enjoy this game, but the way the cars handle is just, fucking clunky.
The drifting makes no fucking sense, whenever I tried to drift it would just send me into
a wall 9 times out of 10. The music was just fine, as it reminds me of ridge racer.
Also, the graphics are amazing ESPECIALLY for a flash game. Seriously, they are STUNNING.
All in all, good attempt, but it falls flat. Either that or I'm just doing it wrong, which if I am,
tell me and I WILL give it another shot.
