Overview Edit

This game is a port of the arcade game Rally-X. The player drives around collecting flags and avoiding other cars until all flags have been collected. Using the B button, they can attack the cars by dropping tree trails which if the enemies crash into, they get stuck for a few seconds. The player gets 3 lives and infinite continues, and a limited amount of fuel which decreases quicker while trails are being dropped. Through each level, numerous things appear on the road. Some awards money while driving on a Duck or a puddle make you loose money or fuel respectively. Pressing Start brings up a shop that offers special items like Turbo, a rocket, a gun, extra lives and others.
