Description

Yaris is an Xbox Live Arcade title given away for free to promote car manufacturer Toyota's line of subcompact cars released in 2007. The game offers futuristic combat gameplay with three models to choose from: the 3-door Liftback, the 4-door Sedan and the 4-door S Sedan, each with a mounted "mechanosymbiont" gun on the hood.

Players drive the cars through tracks presented as large tubes, populated with unusual enemies such as mp3 players and giant motorcycle racers. While racing, players collect coins scattered around or left behind by enemies to upgrade the cars' chassis or wheels, or in exchange for more ammo storage, or an improved shield or gun. The five weapon upgrades include a sawblade, gatling racer, rocket launcher, shotgun laser and gauss cannon.

Multiplayer is available for up to two players. Next to the regular gameplay mechanics, auras light up when the cars are near each other, and the controller buttons can then be used to regenerate both cars' shields, drain extra coins from enemies, drain the opponent's shield or steal a coin from him.
