Reckless Driving1.54

05 November 2007

Race and bash other cars.

Overview

Reckless Driving is a new action game for the Mac. It's gameplay is similar to it's predecessor, Burning Rubber, a Mac shareware game I released in 1996. In Burning Rubber one had to drive a car through 2-dimensional levels as fast as possible, leaving as much destruction as possible on the way. Reckless Drivin' follows the same basic principle, however, it has been completely rewritten from scratch, and it employs a new graphics engine featuring smooth, dynamically zoomed, scrolling 16-bit graphics. The physics simulation has been redesigned to realistically resemble skidding and tire tracks on different road surfaces.

To learn how to play the game, click on the 'Help' button in the Reckless Drivin' main menu, or just start a new game, and see for yourself.

What's new in Reckless Driving

Version 1.54:
  • Fixes a bug which would cause the game to quite with a "-1708 @ EventLoop" error, which became apparent under Mac OS X 10.5.

I remember playing burning rubber when it was out, and I thought it was absolutely brilliant. No faults at all. This is a great newer version of the game, but I miss the original! Wish you could find some way to update Burning Rubber for Mac OSx.

This game only shows a blank white screen on my macbook pro running 10.5.2. I can still click on button and start playing the game, but i only see a white screen. I can, however, see skid marks when i start driving then break. All sound effects still work as well.

I love this game, it's pure fun. When it's all messed up, and the road is blocked, debris all around. I also really like the sounds. Unfortunately this version doesn't work so well. The game itself does, but none of the menus, and you can only quit with command-q after game is over.

had this game for a long time, also a registered user , but the new v1.5 has a problem with the gamma fade at the start where the menu doens't appear, and to get out of the game i have to use force quit. i haven't had any problems playing older versions of reckless driving. i hope a 1.5.1 release fixes the bug.

I've got a folder for "Racing" on my Mac, and i found i'm always returning to *this* racer. So .. i just registered it yesterday. For a mere $12. reg. fee, this is the best! What a great deal! Wouldn't it be great if the author added a competing computer-controlled 'Reckless Driver' .. or if we could run this in competition with each other over the internet..!?

Been playing it since about 2002 and still in love with it. It's a top view racing game, but the fun of it comes from how open-ended it is. Yes there is a clock to beat... but it's MUCH more fun to hit every car you can and push them off the road while dodging cops, picking up turbo engines... did I mention the missles and mines? If you remember spy hunter.. thing about passing that limo car that shoots at you... the slaming on the brakes to do a 180.. then chasing the limo down and pounding him into the side of the road! Did I metion your drive a boat AND a tank too? ...that the cars will be on cement, snow, and mud? Each effecting the way your car handles? Also YOU get to have tire shreaders.

Great game for its type, but I've seen better. By the way, if you're running 8.6, you need to update, and if you have a PC, you REALLY need to update. PCs may have more games, but macs run the large amount of good games that they have so much better than any PC ever possibly could hope to do.

This is a terrible game to put out there to our children. How can you ecourage this type of behavior when reckless driving is the cause of one out of every five accidents. You are only telling the children this type of driving is okay. So what happens one day when they get a license and decide it is fun to drive recklessly and they end up killing people, will they ever be the same?

Excellent game! Lotsa stuf packed into a 2D game! Sure would be cool to be able to use those roadside stops/gas stations. And maybe a little off-road stuff too! 'n' how 'bout a choice of vehicles .. varying performance capabilities, etc.

I was given a reckless driving ticket for reaching the speed of 20 mph in the back of an empty parking lot. The officer was attending to a wreck 200 yards away, with no radar, but beleives he could evaluate the situation.

This is a great game to kill little bits of time, at a time. But, what happened to the PC????? I play this at school all the time, and when I want to at home, its a no-go! That blows! Someone port this! Email me if you know if this exists already, or if you would be so kind as to do it. Long live PC!
