"Road to Fame"
"Road to Fame" brings a fresh, new approach to arcade-style car racing. You begin with a beat up old car and race your way to fame and fortune winning money with each race. Invest the money in tricking out your car, making it faster, or build a new one. Realistic graphics and your personal touches will provide you with hours of entertainment.
Realistic army-related graphics and high energy street racing will pump up your adrenaline as you race through 14 countries on the ultimate quest...... to defeat the enemy in races held on army bases. Choose from one of thirty characters, pick your enemy and leave him in the dust! 20 cars, 20 races, each with different levels of difficulty, equals total excitement. You better be fast and you better be on the ball, because they're out to get you and the only way to get them is to win!
"Road to Fame" is in the final stages of production for the imminent release in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and will be released in the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia in Q3 of 2005. "Army Racing" will be released by the end of October
