Street Rod classic remake


I’m programming a remake of the classic Street Rod games, called Street Rod Online.
It will be a browser based game build with Java, HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript technology.

Why:

  • I’m a huge fan of the original Street Rod series and would like to play these games with extended functionallity (extra cars and parts).
  • I want to learn CSS3 and more modern webtechnology (eg. HTML5, WebSockets).

Goals:

  • Recreate an exact replica of Street Rod 1. (DOS version)
  • Extend functionallity (upgrade graphics, integrate Street Rod 2, add extra cars and parts, etc.)

I’ve started 2 weeks ago and made some progress. At current the game contains:

  • Navigation from and to newspaper and garage.
  • Buy car from newspaper.
  • Car is visible in garage.
  • Tires can be changed.
  • Roof and bumpers can be stripped/restored.

  1. Still busy?

  2. best idea ever. when do you think you will have something playable?

    • Good question. What defines “something playable”?
      You should be able to: 1) buy cars and parts, 2) build a car and 3) at least race on the drag strip against an opponent.
      At current there’s some progress on 1 and 2. I didn’t start on part 3. So, there’s still a lot of work to do.

  3. Done?
