Japanese Flash developer Kohring has just released a new version of his 2D driving simulator that uses street maps and satellite images from Google Maps as a playing ground.
While the simulation is still quite simply and does not detect collisions or road boundaries, its definitely a new way to use web 2.0 interfaces. We are looking forward to the first 3D simulation within Google Earth and other virtual world databases.
Preset locations include Tokyo, London, Manhattan and the Nuerburgring race track.
The game requires Flash Player 9+.

The model consists of some 44,000 buildings in the centre of Berlin shown in…
