📕🐧"An old vehicular combat game and a libre compatible engine"🐧📕


Dethrace

Dethrace is an attempt to learn how the 1997 driving/mayhem game Carmageddon works behind the scenes and rebuild it to run natively on modern systems.

Carmageddon

Carmageddon is the original freeform driving sensation, where pedestrians (and cows!) equal points, and your opponents are a bunch of crazies in a twisted mix of automotive killing machines. The game features anarchic drive-wherever-you-like gameplay and over-the-top surreal comedy violence. It’s the racing game where racing is for wimps.

Now the same Mac & PC classic that was BANNED AROUND THE WORLD is back!

Carmageddon features real-world environments that have been turned into killing fields, where the locals stay out on the streets at their peril. As well as using your car as a weapon, every level is sprinkled generously with power-ups that have a vast variety of mad effects, adding a whole extra level of craziness to the proceedings. In every event you have the option to “play it your way”… Waste all your opponents, kill every pedestrian, or (perish the thought) complete all the laps. Oh and watch out – the cops in their super-tough armoured patrol vehicles are lurking, and if they catch you being bad they’ll be down on you like several tons of cold pork.
Features

"Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Members of the public, you have ONE minute to reach minimum safe distance!"

☑ Crazy range of vehicles and drivers, each with their own personality and driving style.
☑ The game that pioneered true 3D physics,
☑ The game that pioneered dynamic vehicle damage
☑ The game that pioneered splattering grannies. And cows.
☑ In fact, splatter a wide range of seriously scared pedestrians.
☑ 28 dangerously deranged Opponents
☑ 11 wildly exhilarating Environments
☑ Career Mode featuring 36 satisfyingly violent Levels
☑ Race and Wreck opponents to unlock 30 playable cars!
☑ Over 40 fun-packed Power Ups and “Power Downs”.
☑ Great open world track design allowing complete freedom to explore.
☑ Hidden bonus areas to find.
☑ Ludicrously satisfying, arcade-style gameplay.

Gamesplay

The aim is for the player to work their way up the ranking system, from 99th place to first. The player vehicle is pitted against a number of computer controlled competitors, in locations such as cities, mines and desert towns. Levels can be beaten in one of three ways:

• Completing all the laps of the race course, as one would a normal racing game.
• "Wasting" (wrecking) all the opponents vehicles.
• Killing all the pedestrians in the area.

Each level has a time limit, but more time may be gained by passing through checkpoints, collecting powerups, damaging/destroying the competitors' cars, and by running over pedestrians (with bonuses awarded for style). These actions also reward the player with Credits, which can be used to make instant repairs or recover the car (after falling down a chasm, for example). They can also be used to upgrade Armour, Power and Offense stats in the Parts Shop between races. This is also the time to switch which car to drive if others have been obtained. As well as opponents partaking in the 'race', some levels also contain a number of heavily armored Cop Cars, which will activate their sirens and hound the player when provoked. They can be attacked and destroyed, but do not count as opponents. A single "Super Squad Car" exists in one level, and it can be claimed if destroyed. An Action Replay with multiple camera viewpoints is available at any point during a race.

🌍️ Wikipedia:

Carmageddon is a vehicular combat video game released for personal computers in 1997. It was produced by Stainless Games and published by Interplay Productions and Sales Curve Interactive. It was later ported to other platforms, and spawned a series.

In 2011, Stainless Games obtained the rights to Carmageddon from Square Enix Europe. iOS and Android ports were released in 2012 and 2013, respectively. THQ Nordic acquired the rights to the Carmageddon series from Stainless Games in December 2018.

Gameplay

The player races a vehicle against several other computers controlled competitors in various settings, including city, mine, and industrial areas. The player has a certain amount of time to complete each race, but more time may be gained by collecting bonuses, damaging the competitors' cars, or by running over pedestrians. Unusually for a racing game, checkpoints do not extend the time limit.

Races are completed by either completing the course as one would a normal racing game, "wasting" (wrecking) all other race cars, or killing all pedestrians on the level. The game includes thirty-six racetracks, played across eleven different locations. The game features three instrumental remixes from Fear Factory's album of 1995, Demanufacture.

Upon compleating all of the tracks and ranking number 1, all the tracks will be unlocked plus the cars that you didn't unlock during the initial gameplay marked with the word cheat.

When you come to play a track after finishing the game you will find that a cheat has been enabled that allows you to destroy the other cars with one simple smash, there is no option from the menu to disable this.

Un ancien jeu de combat de véhicule et un moteur libre compatible, par le studio Stainless Games, portage par la Dethrace Team, initié par Jeff Harris (jeff-1amstudios).
En C.

Carmageddon est un ancien (1997, Stainless Games) jeu de combat de véhicule inspiré du film "Death Race 2000" de Paul Bartel, dans lequel le joueur participe à une course sordide sur 36 circuits (villes, mines, zones industrielles) en un temps limité où le vainqueur est celui qui a éliminé les autres joueurs, tué tous les piétons ou terminé le premier. En écrasant les piétons le joueur obtient des bonus et crédits permettant de gagner du temps et des améliorations pour son véhicule. Les voitures sont déformables au chocs. Dethrace est un moteur libre compatible en développement.


Dethrace

Dethrace est une tentative d'apprendre comment le jeu de conduite et de chaos Carmageddon de 1997 fonctionne en coulisses et de le reconstruire pour qu'il fonctionne en mode natif sur les systèmes modernes.

Carmageddon

Carmageddon est le jeu original phénomène de conduite libre, où les piétons (et les vaches!) valent des points et où vos adversaires sont un paquet de cinglés aux commandes de toutes sortes de voitures plus dingues les unes que les autres. Le jeu propose un gameplay anarchique de conduite libre et une violence comique surréaliste.

Carmageddon propose des environnements du monde réel transformés en champs de bataille où les habitants restent dans la rue à leurs risques et périls. En plus d'utiliser votre voiture comme une arme, chaque niveau est généreusement parsemé de bonus offrant une grande variété d'effets dingues, ce qui ajoute un niveau supplémentaire de folie aux évnènements. Vous avez la possibilité de "jouer à votre guise" chaque évènement. Débarrassez-vous de tous vos adversaires, tuez tous les piétons ou complétez tous les tours. Oh, et faites attention à ne pas vous faire prendre en chasse par les flics embusqués dans leurs véhicules de patrouille blindés...
Caractéristiques :

"Mesdames et messieurs, chauffez vos moteurs ! Membres du public, vous avez UNE minute pour atteindre la distance de sécurité minimum !"

☑ Gamme de véhicules et de conducteurs délirants, chacun avec sa propre personnalité et son propre style de conduite.
☑ Le jeu qui a été le pionnier de la vraie physique 3D,
☑ Le jeu qui a été le pionnier des dégâts dynamiques de véhicules
☑ Le jeu qui a été le pionnier des mamies éclaboussées. Et des vaches.
☑ En fait, éclaboussez un large éventail de piétons effrayés.
☑ 28 adversaires dangereusement dérangés
☑ 11 environnements follement exaltants
☑ Mode carrière avec 36 niveaux d'une violence satisfaisante
☑ Battez vos adversaires pour débloquer 30 voitures jouables !
☑ Plus de 40 Power Ups et "Power Downs" amusants.
☑ Excellent design de piste en monde ouvert permettant une totale liberté d’exploration.
☑ Zones de bonus cachés à trouver.
☑ Ludiquement satisfaisant, gameplay de style arcade.



🌍️ Wikipedia:

Carmageddon est un jeu d'action et de course sorti sur DOS, Windows et Mac en 1997 puis adapté sur PlayStation et Nintendo 64 (sous le titre Carmageddon 64) en 1998 puis en 2012 sur iOS et en 2013 sur Android. Ce jeu est inspiré du film La Course à la mort de l'an 2000 de Paul Bartel, sorti en 1975.

Système de jeu

Le jeu a été un très vif succès à sa sortie par la nature sanglante de ses courses, mais aussi par la polémique qu'il a causée pour cette même raison. Les voitures sont déformables sous les chocs, ce qui était une nouveauté pour l'époque, et il est possible d'écraser les piétons pour gagner du temps et quelques crédits servant à améliorer les différentes caractéristiques de son bolide.

Le but est de terminer premier par tous les moyens. Pour ce faire, il y a plusieurs méthodes :

• faire le nombre requis de tours de piste et franchir en premier la ligne d'arrivée ;
• éliminer tous les autres adversaires en les détruisant en leur fonçant dessus à répétition ;
• écraser tous les piétons.

• GameSpot : 8,8/10 (DOS)

• Pocket Gamer (iOS) : 8/10
• Video Games (PS) : 48 %

Controverse

La violence du jeu a suscité la controverse. Pour sa version allemande et son portage sur Nintendo 64 les piétons ont été remplacés par des zombies.
