Based on Star Wars: Episode I the Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode One Racer has you experience the pure adrenaline-pumping excitement of the now classic podracing sequence from the movie.
Take the controls as one of over 21 Podracers, including Anakin Skywalker and the dastardly Sebulba, and feel the full-force blast of two massive jet engines at simulated speeds of up to near 600-mph. Rein in a turbine-driven chariot through 8 spectacular worlds. Negotiate through flaming methane lakes, Tusken Raider assaults, anti-gravity tunnels and much more in a pulse-pounding, do-or-die fight to the finish where anyone will do anything to cross the finish line. How far will you go?
With over 21 opponents and 21 tracks to play on, spanning eight worlds including Malastare, Mon Gazza and Tatooine. Avoid dangerous hazards from Tusken Raiders to massive meteor showers, and progress through one of the fastest racing games ever made. Upgrade your pods with your hard earned winnings and get the edge against your competition with a souped-up machine.
Complete with an in game soundtrack directly lifted from The Phantom Menace and voice overs from some of the cast of the movie, including Jake Lloyd as Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars: Episode One Racer provides the whole package when it comes to giving players an authentic, Star Wars experience in game format.
Originally released in 1999 on the PC, Mac, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color and Sega Dreamcast, GOG.com has given Episode One Racer new life through a PC re-release that is completely DRM free.
