View Full Version : Echoes from the past: The PhysX of Switchball

05-01-12, 09:00 AM
Switchball (http://physxinfo.com/wiki/Switchball) has a special place in a history of hardware PhysX acceleration, as it was one of the first games with support for Ageia PhysX (http://physxinfo.com/wiki/Ageia_PhysX_PPU) cards (Switchball demo was included on a CD with PPUs, although the game itself was released later one, in 2007).

Following video, showcasing the physics of Switchball in action, was prepared by our fellow reader Andrew ??MohawkADE (http://physxinfo.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=32)?? Elliott.

Being a physics based puzzle-platfromer title, Switchball was offering special puzzles using SPH fluid dynamics and cloth simulation exclusive for Ageia PPU owners (if PPU was not found in the system, such sequences were substituted with less advanced versions).
