Description

After an environmental holocaust that killed 98% of the population, the remaining feral population above ground turned to moding and racing the cars left over in the ruins of civilization. Race through abandoned cities buried in sand, ruins of a dam, abandoned mine shafts, and other desolate landscapes. Perform death-defying jumps and slide through the corners as you eek out each win! Powerslide is a racing sim with full car dynamics, force feedback support, and full TCP/IP multiplayer support.
