Ballistic

Ballistic is a futuristic racing computer game developed by GRIN and published by Xicat Interactive in 2001. It falls under the genre of racing and has an ESRB rating of E (Everyone). Ballistics is divided into the single player mode and the multi-player mode.

Features

Ballistic is set in 2090, the game is centred on a fictional extreme racing sport known as Ballistics, a descendant of Formula One. The player takes the role of a Ballistic's pilot, racing hoverbikes called speeders through the inside of tubes which form the courses. The speeders are magnetically attached to the race surface, allowing the player 360 degrees of movement. Besides that, players can detach the speeder from the track and navigate down the center in order to avoid track obstacles and to acquire the power-ups exclusively located there. Players must try to follow the outside of each curve, as hitting the inside of a curve at speed could lead to an involuntary detachment, leading to a loss of control and seconds dropped in securing reattachment. Heat levels on the speeder must be monitored, as although there are no set top speeds for the vehicles, they can explode if allowed to overheat. Heat builds up from acceleration and from collisions. To counteract this, the player may activate the on board cooler, however, this will slow the vehicle down. Speeders have a boost meter, showing how much fuel is available for the on board speed boost. Although the boost provides greater speeds and acceleration than the standard throttle, it also increases the speeder's heat levels. Players are rewarded with cash for attaining high speeds, placing highly in races and obtaining the Flip-Score power-up. Cash can be used in between races to upgrade their speeder by purchasing new parts. Parts are split into four categories; chassis, cooler, engine and front shield, with each affecting the speeder in different ways.
