Another 3D Pico game that is not only impressive as experiment, but as a standalone title.
Way too many laps per race though, 3 would enough.
For a higher resolution version with controller support try the HTML5 port here.
This is Ramps! A 3D racer inspired by Powerdrift, Stunt Car Racer, Hard Drivin'.
Choose from 8 varied race tracks, and overtake the other drivers in 5 laps to win. As well as racing you'll need to navigate jumps, roller-coaster like ramps and occasionally even drive upside down.
Includes 3 difficulty levels, plus a practice mode for getting the feel of the track
Z = Accelerate X = Brake Left/Right to steer
You don't have to wait to be automatically respawned after you fall of the track, select "Respawn" in the pause menu to get back into the race faster.
The green and red lines on the speedometer are recommended minimum and maximum speeds. The green line (minimum speed) is particularly important for clearing jumps (and occasionally getting up steep hills), so make sure to keep your speed above it. The red line (maximum speed) is to prevent you from sliding out on sharp corners or overshooting the jumps. Typically this is just a suggested speed - depending on your racing line, driving style etc you may be able to go faster.
