Summary

It is a drag racing game, inspired by Dragster for the Atari 2600. As with all drag racing games, old and new, the goal of the game is to shift gears as fast and as efficiently as possible and beat your opponent or your best time.

 


Gameplay  

Controls:

There are two difficulty levels in the game: Easy & Hard.

Easy Controls

In this mode the transmission is semi-automatic (and a bit low-tech, too).

The right action button controls the acceleration.

The left action button is the clutch. While you keep it pressed, you can use the Joystick/D-PAD Up/Down to shift to a new gear. The gear selector will be displayed while you're holding the button. After you shift to a new gear, release the clutch button and press the right action button to accelerate (you can hold the acceleration button while the clutch button is being pressed, it will not do anything).

Hard Controls

In this mode, the transmission is fully manual.

The right action button controls the acceleration.

The left action button is the clutch. While you keep it pressed, you can use the Joystick/D-PAD Up/Down/Left/Right to shift to a new gear. The gear selection will be displayed while you're holding the button. After you shift to a new gear, release the clutch button and press the right action button to accelerate (or you can keep it pressed while holding the clutch button, the RPM will not increase while the clutch button is pressed).

In both control modes, you need to keep holding the clutch button until the gear shift animation finishes (it's only 2-3 frames), otherwise, you'll break your gearbox (and you'll lose the race). There is a red indicator that stays on while the gear is still shifting, so you'll be able to avoid such disasters.

Managing your RPM

If the engine goes over a certain RPM, a warning indicator will be displayed. The indicator will gradually fill up, if it gets to 100%, your engine will explode and you'll lose the race. You need to shift to a higher gear or release the acceleration button in order to allow the engine to cool off (1930s technology right here!). In higher gears, the engine will overheat much faster.

The current RPM is indicated by a bar on your HUD
