Description

In this RPG-lite version of ChoroQ, you drive a car to various towns. In each town you can talk to other cars, complete quests, race, compete in mini-games such as car golf, car soccer, and car roulette, and upgrade your car with hundreds of different parts.

You can also collect photos of scenic locations, collect coins scattered around the terrain, and collect stamps for completing various tasks.

There's a story to the game to support the need to race and upgrade. The world president, also a car, has had enough of being a president and wants to quit. He has decided to award the presidency to the winner of the World Grand Prix (WGP), or more precisely the winner of the WGP can challenge the president for the title.

All-in-all that sets the scene for a lot of racing because to have a chance of winning the WGP the player needs two team mates and a Super-A license. To get a Super A license the player must finish all nine class A races in at least sixth place but to enter those races they will need an A license. To get an A license they must finish all class B races in at least sixth place but to enter those races they will need an B license. To get a B license they must finish all six class C races in at least sixth place.

Winning races earns cash and cash can be spent on upgrades.
