HOW TO PLAY
The game begins immediately with you at the wheel of the red car.
You're on the open road, surrounded by a pack of cars. They're out to
bump you off the road...smash you into the railings...and crash you
into trees and water.
Use the Hand Controller Disc as your steering wheel and react
quickly. Press the edge in the direction you want to steer the car.
Also use the Disc as your gas pedal. Press the top of the Disc to
accelerate, and press the bottom to decelerate. Chase cars down and
bump them into the weeds! Crash as many of them as you can!
Watch the roadway. Be on the lookout for obstacles in your way.
Build up speed through the straightaways, tighten your steering
through the curves. Don't hug the side or you could get bumped off!
When you approach water make a split second decision. Accelerate
and jump over it. Or drive on the causeway that runs along the
side...if there is one!
When you reach the end of a roadway, you get bonus points! Then
the action automatically begins on the next roadway. Each one is a
little tougher than the last. The game ends when you crash all of
RULES OF THE ROAD
YOUR CAR. Start the game with 5 red cars. You drive one at a time. Go
from a cruising speed of 20 mph to flat out 220 mph. Look at the
screen to see your current speed.
Each time you crash, you lose a car. The number of cars left shows on
the screen. Crash all your cars and you're retired.
When you reach the first 20,000 points, you get another car!
BUMPING: Bump into cars and send them reeling off the road to
crash! Bump with the front of your ca and you lose speed. Get
bumped from behind and you gain speed. Try bumping from
different directions and at different angles. The faster your speed,
the further you will bump the other car. But be careful...any time you
make contact with another car, your car ricochets too. Use the Disc to
quickly regain your course.
JUMPING: To jump press any ACTION BUTTON. Your car gets bigger
as it jumps into the air, then gets smaller as it lands again. Be careful
when you jump. If you come down in the water or onto the edge of
the roadway...you will crash!
You can jump any time, as long as you're going 100 m.p.h. or faster.
Jump when you are boxed in...jump onto another car to crash
it...jump to fly over water. The faster your speed, the farther your
car will jump. Use the Disc when you're in mid-air to control your
If you've got lightning reflexes, jump...and land on the island in the
water...then jump to the roadway. You get bonus points for landing
on the island!
ROADWAYS: There are lots of different roadways. As you progress
through the game, the roadways get more difficult, with more road
debris, center islands, water and turns.
Every time you approach water you will hear a beep and see "!".
Keep your eyes peeled. Sometimes there's a causeway on the side so
you can drive around the water. Sometimes the only was to get over
the water is to jump! You never know until you get there. Response
time is critical.
You complete a roadway when your car drives up to the gas pump
and refuels. You see your score, the number of cars that crashed,
bonus points, the roadway number you are about to begin and the
season you will drive through next. (The scenery along the roadways
is a different color for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.)
CRASHING: A car crashes when it runs into the railing of trees at the
side of the road...when it hits debris in the road...or when it runs into
the water. But you have an edge on the other cars. You can jump on
top of one and it will crash! When another car bites the dust look at
the crash site to see the points you get for that car.
When you crash, you lose a car. Then your next car is automatically
placed on the road before your crash site.
TYPES OF CARS: There are 10 types of computer cars on the road. Get
to know 'em!

You accumulate points as you drive through each roadway. The
further you drive, the more points you get. You also get points for
each car that crashes. Cars are worth different points. Get 1000
bonus points if you land on an island in the water. Your score shows
on the screen at the end of each roadway, or when you crash.
Make it to the end of a roadway and you get bonus points too:

* Steer your car toward the center of the roadway. If you're near the
side you could get bumped off the road and crash!
* Drive between two cars so you can bump back and forth!
* Watch out on the causeways, they can be tricky. Another car can
speed ahead and block your way. If you bump into it, you'll likely
crash into the side.
