    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    There are six cars to choose from:

    • Viper
      • Cougar 
    • Scarab
    • Wasp
    • Bulldog (unlocked from creating an online account)
    • Crab (unlocked from creating an online account)

    All of these cars/PODs have slightly different handling/statistical differences, but they do not pose much of a difference in racing feel while playing the game.  Although this is not meant to be anywhere close to a "racing simulator" I found that the cars handled very well, much better than any "arcade" type of racing.

    There are also six different tracks to choose from:

    • K Zone

              This race is placed in an ancient city type of environment, lots of old structures and buildings

    • Volcano

              A race that takes place around/in a big volcano, its just a big volcano.

    • Canyon

              This is a race that takes place in a big canyon, lots of sand and tall canyon walls.

    • Mines Web

              This race weaves in and out of lots of tunnels/mines.

    • Bridge Ride

              Bridge Ride is a race that takes place around a futuristic factory.

    • OddRock

              (unlocked by creating an online account)  I believe that it is a figure-8 track that takes place on a giant rock.
    While racing, you will find coloured spheres, these pick ups/power ups can help you in completing the race, by either helping you, or negating one of the other cars. There are 5 different kind of coloured orbs to pick up, each with its own special ability.

    • Yellow

              Gives you full boost for a short period of time.

    • Orange

              Gives you a land mine that you can place on the ground behind you.

    • Blue

             This gives your boost gauge a slight fill up.

    • Red

             This gives your shield a slight repair.

    • Purple

             Gives you a electric shock that will slow anyone that is in front of you down for a split second.

    Every vehicle is equipped with a shield wich degrades as you crash into walls or are hit by enemy weapons. If your shield is fully depleted during a race, your car will overheat and stop working, making you fail the current race.
