Acclaim Product Catalog 1999 (English/French/German/Spanish):
    For years Toy-Volt had been producing games and toys for children all over the world. Within months of introducing their first products they shot to the top of their trade. However, it appears that the products have gained minds of their own. Escaping from the shelves that held them prisoners they have entered the real world, and are now creating chaos as they enjoy their new found freedom... the Toy-volt R/C cars have Re-Volted!

    Pendant des années, Toy-Volt a fabriqué et commercialisé des jeux et jouets pour les enfants du monde entier. Quelques mois seulement après avoir lancé ses premiers produits sur le marché, cette entreprise s'est retrouvée leader de l'industrie du jouet. Mais il semblerait que ces produits aient acquis une conscience propre. S'échappant des rayons sur lesquels ils étaient retenus prisonniers, ils profitent de leur liberté retrouvée pour semer le chaos dans le monde réel... c'est la Ré-Volt des petites voitures Toy-Volt!

    Seit Jahren schon stellt Toy-Volt Spiele und Spielzeug für Kinder auf der ganzen Welt her. Innerhalb weniger Monate nach Einführung seines ersten Produktes steigt das Unternehmen zum Marktführer der Branche auf. Jetzt hat es jedoch den Anschein, als ob die Spielsachen ein Eigenleben entwickelt haben. Nach der Flucht aus den gefängnisähnlichen Regalen sind sie nun in der wirklichen Welt unterwegs und richten beim Auskosten ihrer neu gewonnenen Freiheit ein Chaos an. Die Toy-Volt R/C-Autos haben eine Re-Volte gestartet!

    Durante muchos años, Toy-Volt ha estado fabricando juegos y juguetes para niños de todo el mundo. A los pocos meses de lanzar sus primeros productos ya habian alcanzado un volumen de ventas insuperable. Sin embargo, parece que ahora los productos han cobrado vida y piensan por si mismos. Se han escapado de las estanterias que los aprisionaban y han entrado en el mundo real. Ahora están sembrando el caos mientras disfrutan de su nueva libertad... ¡los coches de carreras Toy-Volt se han rebelado!

www.nintendo.com – Nintendo 64:
    Remote control cars race through toy stores and over rooftops in Re-Volt, an unique new racing game from Acclaim.

    Re-Volt lets you guide one of 28 remote control cars through insane race tracks set in unusual environments. Since the cars are the size of real remote control vehicles, objects found around the track are bigger than life. Curbs become huge walls, toys are obstacles, and everything is fair game to drive on, through, or over. There are 14 different tracks spread throughout four Cups, including races set in museums, supermarkets, and settings which may look like your own neighborhood.

    Re-Volt is driven by completely new physics and graphics engines, which create flashy lighting effects and authentic environments. Realistic shadows combine with rich textures to make the over-sized racing areas appear convincingly gargantuan. Re-Volt uses the Expansion Pak, and the folks at Acclaim London report that the extra memory is used solely for graphic enhancements.

    There are more than 28 different remote control vehicles, but most of them are not available until you've proven yourself on the race course. Similarly, you won't see the more advanced tracks unless you place well in the beginning races. Once you blaze through all 14 courses, you'll be able to access the mirrored tracks which have become a standard addition to N64 racing.

    Ultimately, there is no end to the number of tracks offered in Re-Volt. As long as your creative juices are flowing, you can use the game's Track Edit mode to create your own customized courses. These tailored tracks can be saved onto the Controller Pak, so you can show off your design skills at a friend's house.

    In addition to the Track Edit mode, RC technicians can conquer the following play modes:

    Single Race
    Championship
    Multiplayer
    Time Trial
    Practice
    Stunt Arena

    After selecting the mode of play, players can then choose between the following game configurations:

    Simulation (Full Speed; Realistic Collision)
    Arcade (Full Speed, Simple Car Collision)
    Console (Full Speed; Simple Collision)
    Junior RC (Reduced Speed; Simple Collision)

    Re-Volt's 14 courses are set in 7 different interactive environments littered with power-ups such as homing rockets, water balloons and turbo boosts. You can use these items against the computer, or annihilate your pals in the four-player racing or battle modes.

    The vehicles react differently to varying road surfaces, including slick marble floors and sticky carpeted hallways. Each vehicle drives differently according to its unique combination of speed, acceleration and weight.

    Like real RC cars, Re-Volt's miniature machines are extremely sensitive to the slightest movement of the Control Stick. This can initially cause over-steering and spin-outs, but after a few test laps most drivers will begin to feel the groove.

    Backed by a bumpin' soundtrack and a truckload of sound effects, Re-Volt is an entertaining racing game. At the end of our test drive we were left left with only question: What happens when the cars run out of batteries?

Press Release - Nintendo 64, PlayStation and Windows:

    Acclaim's Award-Winning R/C Racer Re-Volt Ships August 18th

    Summer Heats Up as Radio-Controlled Car Racing Game Cruises Into Stores



    GLEN COVE, N.Y., August 10, 1999 - Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:AKLM), a leading worldwide interactive entertainment company, today announced that its supercharged radio-controlled (R/C) car racing game, Re-Volt, will ship to stores on August 18th. Available for PlayStation(tm), Nintendo 64, and PC, Re-Volt was developed by Acclaim Studios London and lets gamers race 28 unique cars in places they always wanted to, but couldn't, until now.

    "Re-Volt takes radio-controlled racing to the next level," said Noah Ullman, product manager for Re-Volt. "When you combine an ultra-realistic physics engine with outrageous racing locations like supermarkets and museums, you've got a 350 mile-per-hour game that will knock your socks off."

    In Re-Volt, gamers drive seemingly indestructible R/C cars through unique courses, including a supermarket, toy store, and museum. Re-Volt features numerous pick-ups and weapons, such as bottle rockets and oil slicks, that allow gamers to experience true arcade-style racing, and includes a comprehensive track editor that lets gamers build and save their tracks, resulting in unlimited replayability.

    The advanced proprietary physics engine developed by Acclaim Studios London for Re-Volt was designed by a team member with a Ph.D. in physics and enables the game to capture the true "look and feel" of R/C racing. Crashes, stunts, skids, and even the car's antennas are created through computer models designed to simulate real-life as accurately as possible.

    Re-Volt was chosen as the premier High IQ (image quality) feature title for summer 1999 by the NVIDIA(tm) Corporation. The High IQ program rewards software developers who provide the gaming industry with the best examples of stunning image quality and multi-texturing effects.

    Re-Volt will feature a nationwide television advertising campaign. Other plans include Internet and print advertising, specifically with gaming and racing websites and magazines, such Radio Control Car Action. In addition, Re-Volt will have a broad in-store merchandising program, a detailed R/C focused website at Re-Volt.com, and co-promotions with strategically targeted partners.

From www.sega.com:
    There's no track here -- no flags, no spectators. Re-Volt takes the racing genre and turns it upside-down by having you race at breakneck speed through crazy places such as a supermarket, museum, garden, cruise ship, neighborhood, the Wild Wild West, and Toy World. These seven fun and wacky interactive environments are chock-full of eye candy. Each of the 28 Re-Volt racers has a unique personality and a mind for destruction. Two of the cars are brand new and 12 were made specifically for Sega Dreamcast. New gameplay and feature improvements are based on consumer feedback from the award-winning PC version. There are tons of pick-ups, weapons, and surprises in this reward-as-you-go game. Track Editor lets you create and save your own tracks, and the graphics deliver the racing experience in 128-bit glory.

    Four multiplayer arenas. New rooftop level. Five single-player game modes. Stunning physics engine. 15 single-player tracks in eight interactive environments. Five skill levels. Racing and battle multiplayer modes.
