Space Racer is an action racing game with a sci-fi theme. The player controls a futuristic hoverbike, competing against computer-controlled vehicles of a similar kind. The races take place in outer space-themed environments, resembling surfaces of alien planets. The player should try to avoid collision with the other bikes to get to the finish line first; a more violent way of solving the same problem involves shooting at the opponents. The altitude of the hoverbike depends on its speed - the faster it goes, the farther away from the ground it is, and vice versa.


Space Racer ZX Spectrum Just hit a mine of some kind. No damage though just a sooty cloud
Space Racer ZX Spectrum If left alone for long enough the game goes into a demo mode which shows lots of riders happily competing together - not a shot being fired
Space Racer ZX Spectrum Using the Sinclair Joystick, forward takes the player higher, down goes lower, the FIRE key accelerates and the space bar fires. Going higher also seems to mean going slower

Space Racer's title music is pieced together from small sound snippets that are arranged on the fly to form a longer piece of music. It's very clever, and works well.
