Renegade Racers is a racing game developed by the Promethean Designs team. The production appeared on the PC and PS1 platform, and it was released by Interplay.
In Renegade Racers players receive an invitation to the championships organized by someone called Buck Billionaire. The tournament, in which participants compete with hovercrafts, is attended by various personalities - including a cowboy, a gangster, a dancer, a secret agent and a crazy scientist; of course, Buck himself could not refuse to compete with the best.
In the Renegade Racers released on the PC and PS1 platform, the struggle is observed from a third party perspective (TPP). During the game we play as a chosen character (initially the creators put at our disposal only six players, but as the tournament progresses we unblock further participants) and we sit at the helm of the hovercraft, fighting for the victory on one of the six routes.
In addition to the classic races, where success guarantees crossing the finish line in the first place, there is a place in the game for other types of competitions, where victory ensures, among other things, jumping over the required number of obstacles or spending a certain amount of time in the air; there is also no shortage of one-on-one clashes. The driving model is skillful and power-ups have been scattered on the trails to gain an advantage over the opponents, such as rockets, mines or even a shield to protect us from enemy attacks.
Renegade Racers has several gameplay variants. The basic one is Arcade Mode, where several dozen races of increasing difficulty await completion. In addition, the game features Quick Race, a fast race that we can fight against both AI-controlled opponents and second player, and High Score, where we fight to score as many points as possible.
Three-dimensional graphics on the PC and PS1 Renegade Racers platform are kept in cartoon style. The struggle is accompanied by a dynamic soundtrack encouraging to fight for victory.
