Description

Virtual Television has given us a chance to do the things that we can't make real in everyday life: Race through 14 great tracks in 5 different environments in a totally virtual place where you can kill each other quite easily with sidekicks or guns. In every track you will see some symbols that can make your car speed up, slow up or even blow up, like your mega-host Lance Boyle says, "Who knows; who cares!" Everything you see in MegaRace is virtual and no one really dies there. So have fun!

Trivia

In the credits of the Best Seller re-release, they added "Sega program", "Sega palette", "3DO program", "3DO graphics" and "CD32 program", in obvious reference to the Sega/Mega CD, 3DO and Amiga CD32 ports (which, in fact, the CD32 port was never released). It's the same in the 3DO and Sega/Mega CD ports
