Description

Rad Racer is an arcade style 3-D racing game. The object of the game is to race to the goal within the given time limit. Along each course are several checkpoints which will increase the amount of time you have to reach the final destination. There are eight different stages with increasingly difficult roads, changing weather conditions, and a variety of opponents who tend to get in the way. Included with the game is an optional pair of red-blue 3-D glasses which can be used to give the game an even more 3-D appearance.

Trivia

The name Rad Racer was used in North America. In Japan, the game is called Highway Star, a name already used by the music band Deep Purple, and Square could not get Deep Purple's permission to use the name of the game. In the US version when choosing the car you want to use, there is still an HS next to the car that you want to pick.
