Speed Warrior car game

Speed Warrior is a car racing game aimed towards the older gamer, such as teenagers or adults. Driving technique comes into play with this game, as the controls are very responsive. There are 3 challenging modes, raceway, drift and escape. Raceway is an arcade style mode that requires the player to win each course before the next is unlocked.

Drift mode is where true driving technique is useful. In drift mode the game player needs to complete each round with the smoothest possible ride. Hitting barriers won't gain you any extra points in drift mode. Escape mode on the otherhand is where the real fun begins as the gamer plays a game of cat and mouse with police cars in pursuit. Detailed graphics, highly recommended!
