Description Edit | History

Apocalyptic future car racing.

Similar in style to Auto-Duel or Car-Wars but simpler with that Games Workshop Style. Not related to R.Talsorian's Cyberpunk RPG.

Build armed vehicles using a point based system and race or fight it out on winding roads that change each game.
