This game was made with Flash MX. It is a clone of the original two top-down-view GTA games. The game features a tile-based engine with a large map of the city, pseudo 3D graphics for the buildings, mission scripting, pretty good collision detection, advanced AI algorithms for navigating the city as well as chasing you (cops) and running away from you (humans), own graphics, and separately loadable modules for game engine, buildings, tiles, and game map.

The demo took around six months to build from gound up, as well as having to do performance experiments with massive collision detection and AI testing. A lot of the concepts developed in this game were later reused in my other games and engines.
