AXL: Full Boost is a futuristic racing game set in 2184 where corporations rule the world and the racing business. The racing style is similar to the WipEout games. The player controls a spaceship that runs close to the ground like a hovercraft. A main gameplay element is the use of energy orbs to boost the spaceship. The player collects the orbs from the ground and releases them when boosting, thus allowing an AI opponent to collect it. The game features 16 tracks, a campaign mode with points and 12 different spaceships called Shifters.
