Description

For those who can remember the cartoon series, this will be a blast from the past. Choose from all your favourite characters including Peter Perfect, Penelope Pitstop and, of course, Dick Dastardly and Muttley, and wind your way through cartoon like environments in the familiar vehicles of each character. Simply get to the end of the race first to open up new tracks, and use weapons to pick off the rest of the cast, and aid your progress.

Trivia

Sadly, this PC version doesn't include toon shading used in the Dreamcast version, and in Sega's Jet Grind Radio. Toon shading makes the characters stand out from the backgrounds with stronger shadings around the character or vehicle, giving it a more hand drawn look like the real thing.
