Description

Grooverider is a slot-car inspired arcade racer aimed at the budget/casual market. In this game you race against three other cars around a track inside different rooms of a luxury apartment.

There are three different difficulties, or voltages, each faster than the last. There are a selection of cars to race in: British classics, 70's cop show, stock cars, GT sports, Formula X and Japanese.

Although the racing is limited to fixed lanes that you switch between there are also road blocks, ramps, splits, loops, merges and a power ups along the trap, and you can barge other cars off.

The game as both single player and two player split screen modes, and some extra game modes such as cops-n-robbers, and time trail with ghost car.
