You play as a blue car in a maze while trying to avoid the opposing red cars, while also trying to collect all 10 flags in each maze, but be careful, since there are obstacles you may need to avoid. There are 2 types of flags, the first type is a normal flag, which when you come across it it will give you 100 (200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 900, 1000) points, which is the main idea of the game, you collect all of the flags in the maze your in to achieve to the next level. The second type of flag is a special flag (knowing that by indicating a flag with a S next to it) which a idea for The people who are aiming to beat the World Record (195,430) since it doubles the amount of points you receive until you lose a life, (Note: it is only useful for the round that you are in.)

You will also receive a radar on the far right indicating where the enemy cars are and the flags,(special flags will just appear yellow) There is also a fuel indicator, so make sure you finish the round before your fuel runs out or the enemy cars will crash into your car.
