ImpulseDS is a racing game inspired by F-Zero X which includes a track editor, allowing you to test tracks you've created. This is an alpha version so both the track editor and racing mechanics are far from feature-complete ;-) A windows version will be released soon for quicker track creation.

EDIT: Update #1 20/08/2013 - fixed bug where if the last knot in the track was deleted, the previous knot wouldn't be automatically selected.
EDIT: Update #2 21/08/2013 - fixed bug where the "Apply" button on the subscreen had the wrong height.

Download: ImpulseDS v0.1 alpha (



Full controls and instructions can be found in the Readme.


ImpulseDS uses libfat, so if your flash cart doesn't support automatic DLDI patching then please patch it with the correct driver.
-Place the ImpulseDS.nds binary on your flash cart.
-Place the ImpulseDS folder in one of 3 places:
   - the same folder as the .nds binary
   - the root of the flash cart
   - in /data/


Button-mode controls:
Accelerate   - A
Brake      - B
Turning      - D-Pad left/right

Touch-mode controls:
Accelerate   - D-Pad up or X
Brake      - D-Pad down or B
Turning      - Touchscreen. Click and drag anywhere on the touchscreen to turn the vehicle - this method allows analog turning.

To exit the game and return to the track editor, press Start.

I tried that yesterday evening. I understand it's a very alpha, but it looks very promising... I'm sure there's a good chance to make a great game out of it!
