Mad Cars is a very simple top down vertical scrolling racing game.

In this game you control a racing car and you race along a road avoiding obstacles such as water on the track which makes you skid. Any contact with another car or the sides of the track is instantly fatal. The road is dead straight all the time but occasionally it narrows and widens fractionally. The roadside scenery does change, it starts as a race track, later it becomes a bridge over water, there's a section through farmland, and another through desert, then the scenery starts to repeat.

The does not seem to have an end, a final destination. The object of the game seems to be to drive for as long as possible to set a high score.

Mad Cars ZX Spectrum I'm the car at the bottom and I've found another car on the track. As we overtake this will drift across and either make contact or force us into a wall

Mad Cars ZX Spectrum In demo mode : travelling through the desert. Note the 'Ventamatic' sign
After a while the desert ends and then there's another bridge section followed by another countryside section
