Description: 

This game contains no background or storyline, just plain and simple racing. After choosing whether to play with one, two or three players, the player must select a car and buy accessories at the "pit stop" before proceeding to the race. Three vehicles are available; namely jeep, sports car or racing car. Accessories include nitrous and turbos, as well as fuel which is imperative to the racing campaign.

The game consists of 30 levels, but the game ends when the fuel is depleted. To prevent this, the player must finish in a high place, which rewards the player with points to spend in the depot. In addition, power-ups float around in the levels, but these may be picked up by any of the four cars.

There are a few different level types. Starting on city roads, the player advance through forest and desert tracks before playing the last levels in a wasteland terrain. Every once in a while there are night levels, which means that the screen is pitch-black save for the small area illuminated by headlights. Double headlights are available as a floating power-up.

Obstacles during races are commonplace. Examples are cones and holes in the road, which mainly slow down the player, and oil spillage which causes the car to spin.
