Light Cycle games

Group Description

Not in reference to bicycles or motorbikes of light weight, this group instead collects games that follow the concept of the Light Cycles from the movie TRON, where several players compete by driving in an arena with vehicles that leave a solid trail which never disappears (in contrast to the similar Snake games, whose tails grow but not continually). The goal is to make all opponents crash, either into walls, each other, or the trails.
