Description

This is a solid circuit racing game featuring more than 20 tracks and cars (no official car manufacturer licenses so the cars are all called coupe, saloon etc), multiplayer capability and 12 different characters, each with their own unique AI and driving characteristics.

There are 2 game modes. Arcade Mode consists of Checkpoint Mode (continuous racing getting from checkpoint to checkpoint before the time runs out) and Single Race Mode. In Simulator Mode there are a 3 further options. Championship Mode will allow you to practice, upgrade and repair your car whilst aiming to win races and climb up the world rankings. Auto Test Mode will put you on an obstacle course to allow you to test your car's handling. Finally, Multiplayer Mode will allow you and up to 7 friends to challenge each other across a LAN or serial connection.

The race tracks themselves are all based on international Grand Prix tracks. You also have the option to try these tracks in reverse (mirror image). Different weather options are also available (rain, snow and dry) and you can also choose whether to race during the day or at night.
