Top Futuristic Opened Upwards Root Racing Games On Linux


F-Zero too Wipeout laid the measure for the futuristic sci-fi racing games genre too inspire many game developers.

Over the years, 4 projects of that genre were started too developed to a playable land that are straight off opened upwardly root code:




H-Craft yesteryear Irrgheist is a costless sci-fi racer alongside IAP on Android. It is built alongside the Irrlicht engine too was late released equally free software with freeware data.

While gameplay is uncomplicated without pickups, boosts or weapons, the motility keeps it interesting. The 180°-Turns used inwards H-Craft marking pattern are real refreshing to the genre.




CoreBreach is a commercial anti-gravity racing game alongside scrap gameplay. There is a freeware dataset that allows compiling too playing a simpler-looking version.

Being an Objective C project, it was odd to compile for me on latest Arch Linux but possible. Campaign mode, weapons too split-screen multiplayer larn inwards comprehend many bases.




Racer is the alone projection alongside 100% costless equally inwards liberty data, nonetheless unfortunately it does non compile on electrical current Arch Linux.

Of our 4 projects, this is the alone that has the classic drive-over boost fields.




Ecksdee is the oldest of the bunch too has challenging fourth dimension lawsuit single-player gameplay.

There are weapon pickups but without AI or human competitors they serve no exercise yet.
