I ever play this game few years ago, but in web-game version


I couldn't get this to run on my PC.. The .exe file just won't start. I really want to experience this nostalgic piece of my childhood again, any solution?

what operative system are you using?

Windows 10 64bit

Same for me (W10 64Bit) exe won't start.


(Edited 2 times)

i found a fix! right click the EXE, hit compatability, set to Windows 98/Me, and i set on admin settings.

EDIT: It plays, but the controls dont work and the entire game is white.

hf you tye zip

3 gamepay in this game is crazy


I played this as a young kid when on school computers those where the days.

can you add visual customazition

HI, what do you mean exactly?

for example something like car color or body kits ?

Can you make a Stand-alone Mac Version instead of using Windows?

unfortunately codebase of this game is very old and is not possible to port it natively on OSX or Linux. As for Mac OSX there is a standalone version, here in download section, who makes uses of Wine "emulator" for running it, you could give a try.
New version, that is under development now, will support natively Apple OSX

Why is the MAC version so laggy? Can barely play it :(


It's finally back, the original, the classic, just as I remember it


I have never seen a game with as much sticking power as this one. People have been playing this for 12 years. When I was still in elementary school, my peers and I would always argue over who got to use the newer computers in our free time, because they were the only ones capable of running Shockwave in order to play FFX Runner. Shoutout to Officine Pixel for making this classic into a standalone PC version!


cool game
