Game Introduction

The player chooses one of three different cars. Each rally is divided into three stages, which must each be completed within sixty seconds in order to progress. If the time limit is exceeded, the game is over. The game employs a third person view of the action, similar to Kaneko's Great 1000 Miles Rally series of games.

Game Play

While driving, an arrow will appear on-screen indicating any approaching bend or turn in the track, giving the player time to react and maneuver accordingly. Different road surfaces, for example snow, will affect the car's handling.

Technical

This game, like most Gaelco games, will suffer from battery death. A battery is located under a plastic rectangular cover about middle of the board. When this battery dies, part of necessary program code dies with it, which in turn kills the board. So keeping this board on a storage shelf for extended periods of time is not a good idea.
