Open Source Android Apps for Developers: XRace-sa (XRace is a 3D car race game for the Android mobile phone platform)

Description
XRace is an open source 3D car race game for the Android mobile phone platform, using OpenGL ES for rendering. More than the other classic car race games, this one provides additional operation modes, which is “sensor controlling”. We can use the orientation sensor to control the car. Without the real hardware you can run this game with a “sensor simulator”, which developed by Group Openintents.
