MegaRace is racing for the Panasonic 3DO game console. In the future, interactive TV is gaining popularity almost virtual, it is gaining so much popularity that now there are big screens everywhere in the city, etc. You have to participate in one TV show "MegaRace", in the races on VWBT (Virtual World Broadcast Television). The telecast will be Lance Boyle in the role of who starred Christian Erickson. He will introduce us to the course of the case, tell various information, and even try to scare us by telling us about a rival with whom we have to fight. At the beginning of the game, we can choose one of three cars with its own characteristics. Our task is to destroy the enemy on the map and drive a certain number of circles. We can, like shoot at the enemy, and ram it. Collect on the track various bonuses, acceleration, but just try not to fall on the reverse arrow of slowing down. You will visit five different places and drive on fourteen tracks.
At first you are available Up - dial only three cars. Choose speed;
those one and press R. And - to shoot.
Your goal is to disable as many enemy machines as possible before the time expires. Destroy enemies can either be ramming them, or shooting them. The number of charges is limited, take care of them, because in the final races do not win without a flamethrower.
Cars in the Mega Race are estimated by six parameters:
armored - armored (four
degrees: lightly - light, medium - medium, heavily - heavy, strongly but this is really strong); weight - weight (affects maneuverability);
warning device - a device for notifying of the approaching
shield device - the presence of a protective shield; laser guns - the power of lasers (from 1 to 3); missile career - a rocket launcher (you'll have to collect rockets to it).
- On the road are scattered special icons. Most brake the car or interfere with the steering. But there are also useful, giving additional armament or speeding up your car (white arrow forward). Three patrons crossed on a badge - add, and two - take away. White "herringbone" along the motion increases the energy of the batteries. Light "ladder" gives bonus points.
- Do not let rivals "sit on your tail". When you are behind, the enemy will start shooting at you. The number of opponents that remains to be destroyed is indicated on the front panel, in the middle.
