The game's selling point was its unique style and physics, which allowed cars to drive on any surface given enough speed. The vehicles are designed so they can flip over and still have their wheels in contact with the ground, walls, and ceilings, often reaching incredible speeds. 

The player can compete in 4 different  worlds on a variety of well designed tracks, featuring some destructive environments, weapon pick-ups, and speed pads which would give you a speed boost if driven over.

Single player

The single player modes include league, arcade, and time attack.

League

There are 3 leagues, Gemini, Scorpio and Taurus. The completion of one opens up the next and unlocks harder difficulties later.
There is a difficulty increase while progressing through the leagues: the first league tracks are with few corners and bends with easy to find "secret" passages. The last tracks have some places with tight corners and need narrow turns.
The AI competition is easy in the beginning, but can be troublesome if they start attacking the player with leader-seeking missiles. However, it is a real competition on expert level.
A perfect win, meaning placing first in every race, unlocks bonuses.

Arcade

In the arcade mode you can choose a track you want to race on, number of laps and difficulty.

Time Attack

Racing to get the fastest lap time. The only power-ups available are speed boosters.

Multiplayer

In multiplayer you can play up to 4 players locally with split-screen or 6 players over a network.
There are two modes of play, racing and battling. Battle mode is unlocked by playing and placing first in leagues in singleplayer.
All the courses from arcade are available for racing.

Power-ups

There are 8 power-ups in the game.

Missiles

Leader missile: homes in to the leader of the race and blows him up.
Regular missile: can lock on to environmental targets or opponents.
Triple missile: shoots three missiles straight ahead and blows up stuff that gets in their way.

Effect weapons

Wormhole: shoots a wormhole on the opponent in front of you and teleports him right behind you and gives you a speed boost. The wormhole can explode if it hits solid materials before teleporting your opponent.
Ice Blast: for a limited time, you get two arcs of lightning that freezes the ground for your opponent so he loses his grip.
Time Warp: slows down time for everyone but you for a short time, so you can zoom past them, also slows down missiles and other weapons so you can dodge them.
 

Misc

Shield: protects you from impacts and missiles. A leader missile takes away your entireshield but you don't lose any speed and you're not sent flying.
Speed boost: gives a quick increase in speed. Activating two simultaneously greatly increases your speed.
