Description

In this game, your goal is to deliver a certain amount of goods to certain points on the map within a time limit. In each level you can choose your vehicle from some options, each one resembling a car from the Brazilian market. The car affects speed, handling, fuel consumption and amount of cargo that can be picked up at once.

At the beginning of each race, you must collect a newspaper in order to summon the map and the delivering orders. Any player may pick up any cargo, by driving unto it.When this happens, a trademark from one of the sponsors will appear indicating the delivery place.

There are five maps where you can offer your deliveries services: country, downtown, docks, uptown, chinatown. The three last ones are not available from the beginning of the game, and must be unlocked by winning one of the first two, before they can be selected.

The vehicles have generic names like truck, utility, mini and sport. But their designs are close from real world counterparts. The mini resembles a Chevrolet Corsa, while the truck looks like a Peugeot 504, and the utility is a Daewoo Nubira clone.

After a few driving, you will start to run out of gas, if this happens, you may still drive the vehicle, but at a very slow speed, in order to avoid this, it's possible to refuel the car at any gas station, paying for the fuel.At the end of any race, the drivers gets a bonus based on how economical were their driving.

There is the possibility to chose either keyboard and mouse or a joystick, but the game doesn't offer to possibility to configure the controllers and neither informs the standard keys.
