Powerboat Racing is a single player racing game.

The player has a choice of twelve different boats which can be raced around ten courses. In the early stages only the two 'Learner' courses are available and as the player progresses the two 'Amateur', 'Average', 'Semi Pro' and 'Pro' circuits are unlocked.

The game is either keyboard, joystick or mouse controlled
