Nova Race

An Arcade Racing Game where you compete against  fellow drivers in the great street tournament of Neon City!

The mafia is looking for new drivers... and you look perfect for the job! Win the tournament and become a legend in the roads of the city!

Try to get the most points by winning all races, but be careful, you'll be penalized if you lose a single race!


You can play with joystick or keyboard!

In Game

Q - Accelerate

O - Turn Left

P - Turn Right

In Menus

1 - Play / Continue

2 - Controls / Exit to main menu


Try to win each race by getting to the end before your opponent! Every race has its own points, and you can try to get the maximum points by not losing any race. If you lose one, don't worry, you can try again, but in the process you'll lose part of the ones you had.
