Game Introduction

The game's amazing dirt and water splashes actually affect the graphic maps on the cars during the race. Driving into mud pits or hitting water pools either muddies up the vehicle or cleans it, respectively.

Game Play

Try to find alternate shortcuts over rocks and grass. Avoid mud and water pools as they slow you down.
