Gameplay[]

Players were given a choice of four futuristic air craft and eight pilots to fly around various courses at breakneck speeds. Special pads were placed on each track and flying over them granted the player access to various weapons and power ups. Blue chevron pads granted the racer an extra jolt of speed.

The speed classes available were Venom and Rapier, and the teams were FEISAR, AG-SYS, Auricom, and Qirex.
