Star Race is all about skill and good choices. At the start of the game, you are given the option to pick different vehicles to race. Some are slower, but more powerful, while others are fragile, but quick. The choice is yours, but there are pros and cons to all of them. The controls are simple. Up is for acceleration, and the left and right arrows are for turning. There are different powerups that you can grab in order to help, and sometimes hurt, your chances of winning. There are several tracks and several vehicles, so go ahead and choose the one that's right for you.
