<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.amazinggames.com/' target='_blank'>http://www.amazinggames.com/</a><br /><br /></div>I stopped by AmazingGames.com, the developers who created Chopper Alley, and they have a short video clip of their new game Speedway Jam!, and it looks like it's been optimized for the Smartphone. They also have a description about their physics engine:<br /><br />"Real physics makes everything behave like in real life. A car with rear wheel drive behaves very differently compared to one with front wheel drive. Tires on ice behave very differently compared to tires on gravel. The weight shift that takes place when a car accelerates will temporarily make it understeer. The size and shape of an object defines the amount of air resistance. A propeller has mass and inertia of its own, and might have the power to flip the entire airplane around if a sudden acceleration is performed. Just like in real life. Things fall to the ground and bounce back up - or get squashed. Just like in real life. Our physics engine knows what properties define the real world behavior of a car, a plane, a helicopter, a rocket, a ball and a bag of potatoes. No special coding required. It just magically works. In fixedpoint math. Industry strength integrators means the physics simulator will never blow up. Real physics. For the first time on your mobile."

Yea, but only for the faster breed of smartphones I beleive.

See this modaco thread (http://smartphone.modaco.com/viewtopic.php?t=4714) (but note that the early posts in that thread are very old).
