Redline: OS X racing game
Ambrosia has released Redline, a new racing game for Mac OS X that features an advanced 3D rendering engine and a physics engine that ensures each car has a distinct feel: "Redline also shows that running someone off of the road isn't just cathartic, it's downright fun. Gun the throttle, light up the tires, and hurtle down the track in any of the three racing modes Redline offers: the realistic Simulation mode, an aggressive Arcade mode, or kick it into high gear in the insanely intense Turbo Arcade mode. No matter what your pleasure, take your pick from numerous cars, tracks, and jump into a racing game that delivers adrenaline via digital injection." Redline supports up to 12 people in a network race, either on a local network, or over the Internet.
The company says that Redline models each wheel of your car independently, as well as the axle width and weight of each car, allowing for an unprecedented feel of the road. Redline features a dozen racing challenges such as acceleration, slalom, graduating you to real-world tracks with a variety of racing conditions. It costs $25 and requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
