Dust Racing 2D
Dust Racing 2D is an open source and multi-platform video game that provides users with a fun and tile-based two-dimensional car racing experience on GNU/Linux, BSD, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. It was inspired by the Slicks’n Slide and Super Cars games.
The game brings back old memories, offering players the opportunity to play against their friends via the split-screen mode (horizontal or vertical), or against challenging AI (Artificial Intelligence) cars. Custom levels can also be created thanks to the built-in level editor.
Offers three game modes
It comes with three game modes, Race, Time Trial and Duel, includes only 2D graphics, smooth physics and gameplay, collision and engine sounds, pit stops, multiple race tracks, as well as star ratings. In addition, users can run the Dust Racing 2D game in either fullscreen or windowed modes.
Under the hood
Under the hood, we can notice that the video game has been written in the C++ programming language, designed in the Qt toolkit (supporting both Qt4 and Qt5 technologies), and dependent on the OpenAL and OGG Vorbis libraries.
On Linux, the project is distributed as a binary archive for 64-bit hardware platforms, a source archive that can be configured, compiled and installed on any Linux distribution, as well as i386 and amd64 binary files for Ubuntu and Debian based operating systems.
For Ubuntu users, the developers of Dust Racing 2D also provide users with a PPA software repository that can be used to automatically receive the latest versions of the application without having to download and reinstall a new package.
All in all, Dust Racing 2D proved to be a fun video game, especially for nostalgics who want to relive their childhood. Please watch the http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iyd4pis2uw and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQQeHAqtfn0 videos for some fun action!
