Screech! Pow! Smash! This is the super chase scene, and you're in it right behind the wheel of a Super Chasemobile car equipped with power and incredible gadgets.

Select your favorite maze pattern. These games feature missiles that travel faster than the cars. Note that the speed of both the missiles and cars increase with each game number. For example, Game 1 has the slowest-moving missiles and cars; Game 4 features the fastest-moving missiles and cars.

Drive your car fast on these mazes. This time, the cars travel faster than the missiles during these games. Note that the speed of the cars increase with each game number. For example, Game 5 features the slowest-moving cars; Game 7 offers plenty of speed.

Missiles do not automatically turn corners during these games. That's why some of your missiles may become trapped in front of a wall. In Game 9 you're driving race cars; Game 8 features slower cars.

You score one point each time you hit your opponent's car with a missile. The first player to score 25 points wins the game. The score of the left-controller player appears in the upper left corner; the right-controller player's score appears in the upper right corner.

* In steering the car, note that you cannot turn the car into the wall. The car will automatically take a corner to avoid crashing into a wall.

* After turning your car or missile onto a street remember to return the joystick to its center position. For example, if you push the joystick to the left to turn the car to the left, push the joystick back to its center position. Otherwise, the car will continue to make left turns.
