RayCast3D is a 3D Game Engine for Nintendo 3DS / PSVITA which runs under Lua Player Plus.
It uses Ray-Casting algorithm (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_casting) to generate a 3D world starting from a 2D map allowing to create basic 3D games without any knowledge of how 3D rendering works.
On PSVITA it runs good with accuracy values >= 3.
In the download package you'll find also a little sample app.
