Wacky Wheels Game

Wacky Wheels is a personal computer based arcade lawnmower racing game released by Apogee in 1994. It strongly puts the emphasis on fun instead of realism, both in looks and gameplay. You can choose between one of eight possible animals as a pilot to race with. While racing, players can collect hedgehogs, bombs and other objects that can be used to shoot or distract opponents. The game features both single and multiplayer play, with splitscreen or modem. In multiplayer mode, 2 human players can either race against each-other, or battle in special arenas where the sole purpose is to hit the opponent a certain number of times with hedgehogs. This last gaming mode, called "Wacky shoot-out" is similar to the classic deathmatch mode from shooting games. The game was and still is distributed as shareware, with only a few characters and courses active. Registration is required to unlock the remaining characters and courses. Wacky Wheels was not the first game to feature this type of gameplay, now known as go-kart racing. An earlier go-kart racing game is Mario Kart. Around the time Wacky Wheels was released, Skunny Kart for which its developer Copysoft used the Wacky Wheels engine (causing a legal wrangle), was also released.
