DESCRIPTION

[ARCADE] Arcade PCB

Red Planet © 1995 Virtual World Entertainment.


Fly in a futuristic armored hovercraft through the canals of Mars in this high-speed death race, against up to seven other players. Your mission is to score points on a race course filled with closing doors, twisting tunnels and other obstacles. You need to get from score zone to score zone, as fast as you can. And do everything in your power to prevent your opponents from doing the same. Once you've grasped the basics, it's time to try 'Martian Football'. This is simply the most exciting interactive team experience on the planet. It's four on four without limits. Exuberant vocal outbursts are the norm as you and your teammates maul your way to victory.
