DEATH RACE for the Odyssey2



It's fascinating!  It's fun chasing monsters!


DEATH RACE pits the player against an intelligent acting, evasive, running Gremlin. Unlike most "player versus machine" games, the "machine" in this case does not simply repeat an action or sequence, but actually "sees", "thinks", and "acts" as intelligently (and even more rapidly) than would another player. The result of this is that each game is a new and different experience.

The object of the game is simple. Hit a Gremlin and you win a point. There are two Gremlins running around the playing field in a random fashion. They are intelligent robots in every sense and will avoid all objects so long as they can see a way to escape. You drive one of two cars which are completely under your control. You can steer them anywhere in any direction within the playing field; move forward in low or high gear; and move in reverse when necessary. You can drive as fast, but no faster than the Gremlins can run.

When you hit a Gremlin, a tombstone (cross) will appear and remain in that same spot until the game is over and a new game begun. Whenever you hit a Gremlin on the playing field, the cross will remain. Thus, each game creates its own totally random and different maze of crosses that each player must steer through while chasing the Gremlins. The more hits, the more crosses; the more crosses, the harder the steering becomes. Thus, it becomes increasingly difficult to maneuver as your skill increases.

Death Race is a 4K game for 1 or 2 players, and was programmed by Ivan Machado - his first Odyssey 2 game!  Ivan also recreated the original artwork that was done by Pat Peak for the Exidy coin-op version.  Scott Stilphen handled the production of carts and Tim Duarte handled production of the manuals and boxes. All three gentlemen worked together on the manual.

A limited run of 100 boxed copies of DEATH RACE were produced that are compatible with NTSC systems.  Each game includes a professional-styled manual. These 100 boxed copies quickly sold out.

We are happy to release the "unlimited edition" of DEATH RACE. It does not have a serial number and no box is included - it is just the game cartridge and the color manual.



The Odyssey2 version features something the arcade version didn't - a title screen!



The game is for 1 or 2 players.



As more crosses fill the screen, the harder it becomes to drive around.



VHS-style storage box, color manual, and game cartridge
( Please note: the VHS-style storage box is not included in the unlimited release )



Please note:  the crosses aren't appearing correctly in this youtube video, but that's due
to how the video was made, and not a glitch in the game itself.
