    Zip around miniature race tracks that are juiced with 9 volts of electricity in this pint-sized racer.

    Features

    • Race slot cars on 20 tracks in a fantasy penthouse apartment
    • Power-ups include mines, speed boosts and high-voltage attacks
    • Unlock a variety of cars, from 1920's British Classics to Formula One-style racers
    • Two-player races


    Racing slot cars is unique because there is no need to steer. Cars follow a preset path and drivers only control the speed and lane changes.



    Despite the simplicity, staying on track is challenging due to unforgiving track-design. Beware of huge jumps, lanes that suddenly end and barriers that always seem to sneak up on you.



    Standard Championship, Arcade and Time Trial modes are all available. You can unlock four more modes, including Cop Challenge, in which it's your job to take out a bad guy while driving a black and white cruiser.



    Bottom Line

    Take your standard kart racing game and remove the steering. Sound fun? Then you'll probably enjoy this game. The low price tag makes this racer slightly more appealing.
