In Death Race, you are driving a heavily armed futuristic vehicle on a cross country race of destruction. Terminate gremlins in the cities along the way and recover the flags to escape in time. Missile silos hound you as their deadly bolts seek your destruction. The technological capabilities of the gremlins increases to nuclear proportions. Launch a volley of your own missiles to create a firestorm eliminating anything in your path. Armored helicopters with devastating firepower stand between you and your ultimate goal. Between each city, you can use the bounty awarded from all this mayhem to upgrade your car and increase your weapons' destructive power. There are a multitude of new weapons from which to choose.
