In Rally-X, you run a car about on a course with other cars chasing you and try to collect ten flags before running out of fuel or crashing. As your fuel runs down they get a bit faster than you, although you have ways to escape them. Each way is costly, though. You can kick smoke out of your tailpipe which will stun cars for a bit, but that loses fuel. Ducking around too much and ignoring flags also costs time. The mazes get progressively tougher.

Rally-X was the first scrolling open-world video game, and the first open-world driving/racing game. It inspired Miami Vice (1986), which in turn inspired Grand Theft Auto (1997).
