Have a N.I.C.E. Day! / Axelerator Synetic GmbH / Magic Bytes 1997

This is a combat racing game with 3 different car leagues. The more races you win, the more money you earn. You can buy new weapons and extras. The graphic engine is simple; the whole terrain is "flat". The player begins his racing career at the very bottom in a Chevrolet Impala, and he must complete a series of races. It is not crucial to always being first - there is a point system, where the Formula 1 is similar. For each race won, the player gets money and a few pieces of the puzzle. With the money he can tune his car and buy some more or less useful gadgets. The pieces of the puzzle, the player can sit down and replace. If he completes the puzzle, he gets a cash bonus. Once the player from a racing series has emerged as the winner, he is promoted to the next class. The Chevrolet Impala is soon followed by the Ford Mustang , which is eventually replaced by a rocket-propelled car. In addition to the career mode, there is also the opportunity to dispute with another driver in a duel. If your own car is damaged, the player can use a repair kit that repairs the car by 20 percent. The routes are mostly of historical background, past pyramids of Egypt or those of the Aztecs. Each route is peppered with loops and ramps. Ramps should not be taken too fast, otherwise you could fly off the next curve through the guardrail. The curves are marked with different colors, for example, a red curve can be taken quickly, a blue one is slower and yellow forces you almost to a total standstill. The tuning shop has, in addition to the "normal" upgrade options (engine, suspension, etc.), some unusual parts to choose from. Apart from useful items such as guardrail guide and pool cleaner, there are nice accessories for the interior. These include a toilet roll for the rear shelf, a shift knob in the shape of a skull, as well as plush dice for the mirror. A handsaw and a victory cigar can be purchased to help, but not at the races. The weapons available are: Gatling Gun (Classic Machine Gun), Limpet mines (from the rear of the vehicle to be thrown onto the hood of the enemy, where they detonate), Oil thrower (make opponent slide), Nail Launcher (sets a carpet of nails on the roadway and impedes other drivers), Missiles (fly straight and detonate the target), EMP missiles (paralyzes the opponent's car), tire diameter (rips the enemy tires).
