Projects / XRally


XRally is a clone of the Rally X arcade game. In Rally X, you control a blue car which has to run through a maze-like level collecting flags and avoiding colliding with enemy (red) cars. In order to protect itself, the blue car can discharge clouds of smoke which stun the enemy cars for a while. The enemy cars can also crash into each other, what gives you some extra time. One of the main features of XRally is that it is fully customizable. You can create custom tilesets and levels and load them at run time, changing the entire look of the game. (You could, for instance, create a water tileset, using boats instead of cars.)
