Demon Driver is a top-down racing game with eight car types and a choice of 32 tracks. Each vehicle offers variable ratings in speed, acceleration, and handling, and players must race against three rivals in a series of ten laps. Twists on the genre include collectible coins, oil slicks, and a temperature gauge that gradually diminishes the longer the gas button is depressed, meaning players must carefully balance speed with the risk of overheating their engine.
Running over coins found along each course is necessary to purchase vehicle upgrades in the areas of tires, engines, brakes, and cooling systems. Each of the 32 tracks ranges in the type of terrain encountered, from asphalt and mud to sand and ice. Water power-ups are also strewn about the courses, which decrease an engine's temperature once acquired. Up to four players can compete simultaneously using the Game Link Cable. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
