    TRIVIA
    A very rare prototype game. This game ran on the same hardware as "The Last Starfighter" (1984). Unfortunately, this game also suffered the same fate as the "The Last Starfighter" (1984). It was never released due to high cost of the hardware preventing the game being sold to the market. If released, it would have been the first space-themed racing game utilizing flat-shaded 3-D Polygons.
