ManiaDrive is a free clone of of the Trackmania arcade car game on acrobatic tracks for Win32 and Linux. It offers quick and nervous gameplay (tracks almost never exceed one minute), and features a network mode, as the original. The game also provides complex car physics, live scores, full soundtrack, track editor with more than 30 blocs, and a dedicated server. It is based on the open source Raydium game engine using the OpenGL API for rendering (80 000 vertices per frame at a correct framerate), fog support, dynamic lighting, transparency, skyboxes, MultiTexturing, MipMapping, and more. The new v1.01 is the first public release and features a solo mode (as well as from a network) with 12 levels and 25 online tracks.
