This engine demonstrates an implementation of game maker's built in box2d physics engine in a top-down car simulation. Box2D enables smooth and precise collision detection and reaction, and the use of joints simulates realistic car movement that is usually not attainable using conventional physics systems. The demo is simple and easy to edit with comments describing each chunk of code so you can start creating an awesome top-down car game immediately.

-Cross platform support
-Uses the reliable box2d physics engine for clean collisions and realistic reactions
-Complete commenting for almost every chunk of code
-Easy editing and changing
-Includes a simple top-down chaser AI
Can now rotate car in room editor. *Fixed steering glitch when the car is moving backwards.
