The Game

Race your kart around the junkyard track through grass and mud and over bridges, avoid the traps set by the other racers and be the first player to complete five laps, proving yourself a true Junkyard Races speedster.

With a jet full of fuel securely strapped to the back of your kart, bracing yourself and praying that the jet stays together without exploding, you slowly reach back and turn the valve. The blast of the jet pins you to the back of your seat sending your kart hurtling round the yard at great speed that the track ahead blurs out of view.

Flying past Tiny and the Professor and fast approaching Tilly’s Kart, you see the chequered flag and can virtually taste the prize at the finish line.

Nothing can stop you now. You sail pass Jack’s Kart as your jet fuel gauge approaches empty and you prepare yourself for a steady cruise to the finish line.
You only hear the fateful ticking sound once your fuel is spent and the jet hisses to a stop, but by this time it’s too late. Without you knowing it, Jack must have dropped you a time bomb when you passed his Kart. The explosion sends your Kart spinning to face the opposite direction and grinds you to a sudden halt. Turning to survey the damage you see Jack and Tilly pass you at such speeds that you know, at least for today, the race is lost... But, what a race!

Your pride gets the better of you and you race again, knowing this time you will win.
