Spin off time
Id like to focus on games that let you make levels or stuff or just whole games We all know about the the RPG maker series right? Well its stuff like that
Well today Id like to talk more about racing games and games with track editors
One of the first track editors I can remember was Exsitebike on the NES But we are going to skip ahead a bit and talk about the PS2 and a very little known game
This little known gem has one of the best track editors I have ever seen there is simply no end to the way you create your tracks and you do that by drawing a ribbon note this ribbon can be flat with sharp bends or flowing and loopy and twisty
Race upside down? sure spirals? yep what about a tube like track like F-Zero?
Tricky hard to make but yes it can be done can you make sections of the track invisible? yes
What about wavy where the hover machines bounce around? Yes
Does the track have to make a full loop? No you can make a track thats a slalom.
How long can you make a track? Well I once made a track that took 10 mins to complete
How big can you make the track? By using clever tricks you can make tracks that break past the game world
I had a track go so high that the game sphere was a dot on the screen
