The retro-themed racer, developed by Insane Code, features a career boasting over thirty events; a time attack mode which will see you racing against the clock; and even a track editor which enables you to create and share your very own designs.

Six suitably retro cars are available to the player, each can be upgraded in several areas to improve their acceleration, top speed and handling. The game's tracks are split into eight unique graphical themes and are set to a backdrop of 13 synth/retrowave audio scores.
