You are the charismatic Drake Edgewater, a renegade prisoner who has managed to escape the iron clutch of the Kemo prison. Your new challenge is slightly different than the one you faced in the prison. There, survival "on the inside" was key but now you must survive in the "outside world."
Controlling Edgewater in his machine is the primary means of transport and attack. Armed with potent firepower, including a 50-mm Gattling Gun, flamethrower and guided missiles, you must traverse desert lands, urban jungles and city vistas in order to stop the evil Omnicorp Empire.
This linear-style driving and shooting game takes you through levels of varying difficulties and types in the main single-player mode. You and your Hover Cab 350 will have to complete a variety of tasks within these levels, many of which require brute force and precision. For instance, in one mission, you must rescue the "sophisticated" residents in Kriegtown from their Omnicorp Empire oppressors.
You also battle air targets in certain levels, including hover planes and airships. In a mini-game, you must enter the Death Derby where only the last man (i.e., car) standing is declared the winner. The game is also littered with bosses such as the evil Omni-Mouse at the theme park.
This futuristic driving game features support for a standard mouse, joysticks or the Thrustmaster Steering Wheel. Many sound cards, including SoundBlaster, are supported as well for maximum feedback during gameplay. The game runs in both MS-DOS and Windows 95. ~ Glenn Wigmore, All Game Guide
