What Math did they use to Make this Game?

There are acceleration and deceleration effects as the "beetle" starts, crashes, goes uphill, and falls down. See velocity and acceleration graphs.

The beetle moves through the 2-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system.

There is a sophisticated "suspension" effect (as though the beetle has springs). Springs involve trigonometry, and differential equations.

Finally, the beetle follows parabolic movement when it is flying through the air under the influence of gravity.
