In the wake of numerous unsuccessful attempts to eradicate the brutal sport, the authorities eventually admitted their defeat and accepted it as an official sports discipline along with its TV broadcasts. The rules are incredibly simple: the players’ task is to reach the finish line as quickly as possible and preferably in one piece. What differentiates GRIP from traditional racing games is the unique construction of the cars that allows them to drive on nearly all surfaces, including ceilings.

Power Drive 2000
Power Drive 2000

Racing TBA

A retro-futuristic racing game by Megacom Games. Power Drive 2000 presents a futuristic version of the year 2000, as visualized in the 80s science-fiction productions. Therefore, the streets of the cyberpunk city are lit up by bright neon lights, and we drive a super-fast sports car, Avenger 2000, which is equipped with an afterburner and an on-board AI. Power Drive 2000 offers a purely arcade driving model, while our task is to complete a race not quickly, but rather as spectacularly as possible. There are six game modes to choose from: Race Mode (racing a “ghost”), Collector Mode (collecting diamonds scattered on the street), Outrun Mode (a police chase), Vaporizer Mode (touching a barrier disintegrates the car) and Gauntlet Mode (an infinite race in which one has to avoid collisions). In any of these, we may play either alone or in multiplayer mode (over the Internet or in split-screen mode). All of the above is presented using attractive visuals which look vintage while employing modern effects.

Speed Elixir

Developed by Electro Phantom Games studio, an arcade racing game, inspired by the late installments of the Need for Speed series.

The arcade driving system used in the game places special emphasis on speed and spectacular drifting, requiring a lot of practice to achieve mastery. The characteristic feature of the game, taken from the aforementioned Need for Speed series, is the integration of single and multiplayer modes, allowing for smooth transition between them, without the need to enter the lobby.

Drift Stage
Drift Stage

Racing TBA

An independent retro racing game, paying tribute to the classic, 80s' arcade representatives of the genre. Drift Stage was inspired by such games as Super Hang-On, Daytona USA or Outrun 2006. The player participates in racing events emphasizing showy drifting. The game offers various licensed cars from the end of the 20th century. The player races on urban tracks or coastal promenades, for example. Although the game features arcade driving physics, learning how to drift and get through corners properly requires a bit of practice. Apart from a typical career mode, the game provides an opportunity to compete against others players online or on split-screen. The game stands out with its unique, old-school visuals - instead of realistic, high-quality graphics, the creators offer 3D models with simple textures resembling old 8-bit and 16-bit games, as well as a minimalist color palette.
