Browser game “Formula One”
During watching the first Formula 1 race of the 2013 season, I came up with the idea to realize this racing series with the Google Earth API. At first I just needed to find the positions of the real racetracks in Google Earth. The main buildings at the formula one race tracks were mostly built in Google Earth. I created additional buildings (especially for brand new race tracks) later with Sketchup and loaded them into the game via API. To make the game more exciting I unlocked the race trackes at the real dates of the free training in the “Grand Prix” races in the Formula 1.
The high score – appearing after a successfull completing of the race course – enabled a direct comparison between other players from all over the world.
- Arcade game “Formula One” – playable in all current web browsers supporting the GoogleEarth-PlugIn
