I was wondering how I could create a Fzero clone, like the one from SNES; it simulates 3D. It's pretty similar to Mario Kart (SNES or GBA version).
I thought I could make a variable to keep track of the distance driven by the player and then change the background according to that. For example, from km 10 to 15 there's a curve so the background changes its animation to one where there is a curve.
With a lot of events this system might work but in the original Fzero you could turn around and see the rest of the road; that is really hard to make if I were to use the system I imagined.

There must be a better idea to clone these games, what do you think?
