In an exotic range of vehicles and around some of the harshest circuits ever devised, you've got to ram, nudge, barge and otherwise cheat your way to victory. If you spot a sneaky shortcut, then use it - if your opponent's hugging the cliff edge then give him a nudge and a salute as you cruise into the lead and he cruises into a deep gorge.
Out on these panoramic race circuits, you'll get to drive the weirdest range of vehicles. Speed merchants can try the Bug for size, style victims can hop in the Redneck and those with a taste for the bizarre can drive the bright yellow school bus through the opposition.
Once you've beaten the computer controlled cars, grab a mate and test the multiplayer mode. You won't need no stinking modem to play head to head in this game, though, because Ignition features a unique split-screen mode for up close and personal racing.

IGNITION - it takes skill to drive like a nutter!

  • Seven unique race tracks from the Lost Ruins to Cape Thor
  • 11 unusual vehicles from monster trucks to jungle jeeps
  • Funky smooth-scrolling overhead race view
  • Two player split-screen mode

A nice little Retro Racing Game in a little funny and child-friendly Look! For someone who has a Penchant for old, short and simple (Racing) Games without complicated Controls and few Buttons to do, this is just the thing! It may seem very monotonous for one or the other because there are not very many game modes and in principle always drives 3 Laps and hopes to take Place 1st Place but it is a neat thrill behind all the Race and offers a flout of the Surroundings. ichene Variety. It's good once again to have played one of my Childhood Games! :)

Puuuh. I still know about 18 Years ago when I got the Game somewhere. I was still young, but I already knew the other Lead cast titles before that (Yes, here the Games are more known by Bleifuss.-Bleifuss 1, 2, Fun, Rally as well as Offroad). I played it a lot. Way too much. Even Years later, when there were significantly better Games. Even had thrown the Game back into my Drive 1-2 Years ago and played through everything in just over an Hour. From there, the Magic somehow went a bit gone. I mean, I'd played the Game for Weeks at the time, but was never aware of having played through the Game-but maybe it was also because I was playing immemr with Cheats? No matter. The Game is beautiful. Funny. Entertaining. And also, for two, can be played well on a Keyboard. But what's wrong with the Steam Version? At least with me, as otherwise no one ever complained about it!? I just wanted to play through the Game quickly. So forcibly put the Game in English as there was nothing else left, Championship selected, Redneck taken as a Vehicle and off it went off. At least such a lap and a half. Then came a Bug. I exploded. again. And again. And so do my Fellow Contestants. I've never had anything Like this?! Of course, I had to crawl out my Phone first and film it out hindered, as I don't always have dxtory open. And yes, the Game also crashed. New Attempt, all at the Beginning. Again the Vehicle taken. End of the second Round. It happened again. Just again. I was a bit distraught but finished the Race and took another Racer and like a Miracle. I was able to finish the Track. And the next one, too. Fascinated as I was, I took the Redneck again and everything went. I was a bit unsettled. So I finished the Game and restarted it. Redneck selected, not even driven for 20 Seconds. Same Bug. I'm not pretty sure. I'm 100% sure there was such a Bug NOT back then. Never ever and now he's here on Steam? With my Version probably only?! Reproducible. I just want to say. The Game is 20 Years old. Costs €10p (Which is even FOUR Euros more expensive than on gog!) and then this happens here. I don't know what to do, but I don't know if it happens with the gog Version, but I think less. I feel deceived. And my Memories of a very charming Game were once also comforted. I do think I will have to apply the Refund Function again. I certainly don't want to have money spent on That. This is just TO ridiculous.
