First person view mode

The gameplay of Rod 3D is best compared to Meteor, but you play as a yellow car. The key features of Rod 3D are it's 3D graphics engine, and the optional first person view mode. The game also offers a scripting system, which is very extended in comparison to Meteor 2's. For example, you can set the camera angle and viewpoint using scripts.


  • To kill an enemy in first person view, you must shoot at it's bottom.
  • In third person view, it may occur that you miss an enemy because you shoot above it.
  • Buildings that can be entered literally have no roof. Therefore, you can attack enemies flying outside from inside a building. However, they can attack you too.
  • There is a flaw in the collision detection which allows you to go though walls if you drive into them while rapidly spinning around.
  • Oddly, the car will behave glitchy if you go northwest in third person view.
