Description of Hot Wheels Micro Racers

The gameplay consists of racing against up to three other cars on one of three tracks. Three racing modes are available: single race, championship mode, and pursuit. Single-race mode, as the name implies, lets you choose a track and race once. In championship mode, you must race through all three tracks but must come in first place to advance to the next track. Pursuit mode is a somewhat brutal option; it consists of a single three-lap race, and the car in last place for each lap gets eliminated (it explodes) until only the winner remains. The two-player split-screen mode lets you and another racer compete head-to-head on the same computer.

The controls are easy to learn, as they simply involve turning right and left, and using the gas, brake, and the turbo boost. Each car has different handling characteristics: acceleration, top speed, grip, and turbo recharge rate. These characteristics are clearly displayed in the car-selection screen. The turbo boost adds a small element of strategy to the game; it should be used as often as possible, but since turbo takes a moment to recharge, it should also be used in the most advantageous locations in order to maximize its effectiveness. A super-turbo boost is also available after you find the three hidden stars on each track. After you locate a star, your boost will become more powerful, and it will last longer.
Requirements: No special requirements
