    Overview

     Nope, this is not F-Zero!
    Nope, this is not F-Zero!

    The game is a futuristic racing game, as it shares some similarities with other futuristic racing games like F-Zero X. In the game the player is able to race with futuristic motorbikes powered by plasma, making it therefore possible to achieve speeds to over 750 km/h, which made this in fact one of the fastest racing games on the N64.

    Speed and creative racetrack designs are emphasized, since many of the tracks in the game are built like roller coasters. Perhaps the most notable aspect of this game is it's incredibly catchy Trance soundtrack, which is impressive considering the hardware limitations of the N64.

    Plot

    In an distant future where the entire world is a complete wasteland, human colonists who have found a new planet to call home use their remote controlled power bikes to race through the wastelands of Earth. The winner is the first to cross the finish line, or the last to survive.
