Game Play

The players race against the clock to accumulate points for distance covered driving around a 2-D track. A car will spin out if it runs into the "pylons" (white blips) along the side of the road. There are also a few "oil slicks" (dark patches) on the course where a car's direction of travel cannot be manipulated.

When the timer reaches 0, the players can compare their scores to a small chart on the machine for a play rating.

Although the manual says that the controls accurately simulate a areal automobile', the claim is not quite true. The car changes direction while the steering wheel is being turned. When you stop turning the steering wheel, the car continues straight in its current direction (not quite like a real car).
