パワードリフト

pdriftj

1988年にセガから発表されたビデオゲームです。

鈴木裕氏が「アフターバーナー」に次いでプロデュースした体感ゲーム最後の大ヒット作品となっています。

ナムコのポールポジションから始まったリアルレースゲームの流れは、同氏の作った「アウトラン」でひとつの転換期を迎えたと云えるでしょう。しかしタイムアタック的なゲーム性は脈々と受け継がれて来たスタンダードな流れであったと思います。
レースゲームとは短いプレイ時間の中で緻密にしてシビアな緊張感を味わうものであったと云っても過言ではないでしょう。

本作「パワードリフト」が呈示したゲーム性はそんな常識を覆す斬新でした。
その奇抜なコースレイアウトからも分かるように、レースゲームを遊園地の乗り物として楽しもうとする発明を盛り込んでいたのです。
それまでの1コンマ何秒と云うストイックな世界からの脱却を試みたとも云えるでしょう。

私が本作を初めて遊んだ時の感想は「大味」を過ぎませんでした。しかし、それまでのレースゲームからは感じた事のない直接的な「喜悦」も与えられました。
米国受けを狙っているような下品でふざけた表現も見受けられますが、体裁はレースゲームとして纏まっているので、もちろんタイムアタック的な楽しさも提供してくれます。
しかし、本作の特徴は「ただ遊んでいるだけで楽しい」と思わせるゲーム性にあると云えます。

莫大な量のスプライトを組み合わせて表現された斬新な設計のコースは、それこそ物量にものを云わせてプレイヤーへと猛スピードで迫って来ます。
プレイヤーは細かい事を考えずに身を任せて、ハンドルを大きく切り返しながらライバルを追いつ抜きつつするだけでいいのです。派手なグリップ音が高揚感をまた煽ってくれます。
これだけで十分に楽しめる内容なのです。それまでのレースゲームとは楽しさの向かうベクトルが違うのです。
現在で云えば、バーチャファイターに対する鉄拳のゲーム性と云えば分かり易いでしょうか。
このゲーム性は鈴木裕氏の計算で成立されているのを疑うまでもありませんね。

しかし大きな弊害も生んでしまいました。
本作以降と云うかほぼ同時期から、体感ゲームまたはコクピットゲームは大味で良しとする流れを作ってしまったのです。
確かに本作はそれで成功したひとつの例ではあるのですが、全ての大型筐体物が当初のインパクトだけを一般に向けた底の浅い短命なものとなってしまっては意味がありません。しかし、他メーカーはもとよりセガまでも大型筐体物のゲーム性を軽んじて以降これと云った大ヒット作を開発出来なくなってしまいました。これは現在にまで続いているパワードリフトの呪詛とも云えますね。


さてMAMEで遊んで見たのですが、ギャラクシーフォース同様かなり高い再現度を誇っていると思います。細かな違いは分かりませんが絵も音も十分に完成されているのではないでしょうか。
しかし操作系がしっくり来ません。色々設定を変えて見たのですが、実機で遊んでいるような感じを得られませんでした。
問題はハンドルの切れが大き過ぎる事ですね。これは腐心して見たのですが改善出来ませんでした。それとバタフライシフトの設定が見付かりません。
私の見落としと設定の失敗から来るものなのかも知れませんから何とも云えないのですが。

もし操作系の対応が完璧に為されていないのであれば、まだファイナルバーンには活躍して貰わないといけない事になりますね。

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

By reducing the size of the internal fat deposits the skin can and will appear flatter and smoother. Indeed, it has been found that men using HCG to lose weight have even better outcomes than female users in several instances. This is greatly do to the fact that eating and lifestyle choices were not in place once the weight had been eliminated.

There is no such thing at the moment but there are goods that promise to stop additional hair loss and maybe restore some of the lost hair, if the follicles haven't completely withered away. It is often mixed with other oils to keep cost down but still provide benefits. The magnitude, the effect rate, and the duration of the hair loss depend on the phase when the interference occurred.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

If your battery is not goiing to be used for a period of time it wiull eventually lose its chjarge due too its natսral ϲharge depletion.
