Description

A arcade-style party racing game. There are 12 pull-back friction vehicles which have a very easy handling on the many racing tracks. The game also has 46 Challenges with 23 normal races and 23 funny mini-games such as bowling or table-soccer (everything with cars of course). On your way you pickup weapons and power-ups to ensure your lead.

In the race-challenges your goal always is to reach the finish line as one of the top 3 players. But the kind of challenge differs from normal race events over drive through checkpoints to simple time trials.

The mini-games always have different goals. In the bowling event you need to get down as many pins (or penguins on some tracks) as possible for example. Or you need to kick your opponents of a table three times while avoiding falling down yourself to win.

To play all challenges and power-ups free you need to get a specific amount of bronze, silver or gold medals which will be awarded if you reach specific goals in the challenges. For example in a normal race-event simply reach the first place for the gold medal.

Every challenge can (once played free in single-player) also be played in multiplayer with up to 4 players on one PC (Split-screen) or with up to 8 players in LAN or over internet. The AI fills in the missing players if wished.
