Description

Motorhead is a racing game set in the near future. Despite it's semi-futuristic setting, the cars require realistic handling. There are 10 different cars and 8 different tracks. They are not all available from the start however; the player has to earn them by winning championships in the Transatlantic Speed League.

Trivia

The OEM version of Motorhead bundled with nVidia TNT cards uses 32-bit color rendering to display an absolutely delicious distance model. No matter what the "distance clipping" or "scenery pop-up" setting is, distant scenery eases so smoothly into your field of view that you barely notice it. Take a look at the screenshots submitted by "Trixter" as proof, since they were all taken from a TNT-based card.
