Description

Motorhead is a racing game set in the near future. Despite it's semi-futuristic setting, the cars require realistic handling. There are 10 different cars and 8 different tracks. They are not all available from the start however; the player has to earn them by winning championships in the Transatlantic Speed League.

Trivia

In addition to my previous trivia about DJ Randolph Carter & club The Black Lotus; Randolph Carter is the main character of several books by horror writer H.P. Lovecraft and is sometimes considered to be his alter-ego. The Black Lotus is a plant that plays a role in Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos.

There are several games in the database that have been inspired by the books & stories of H.P. Lovecraft (click here).
