Can't remember title of old racing game.

  1. So when I was younger I had a racing game. You controlled something like a RC cabriolet car, and raced on tracks that were in the sky. There was a level editor, puzzles where you had to either break or push to target big blue balls. It was rather fun and I really would like to recall its title. Anyone ever played something like that?
    I think that title included something like 'ice' or 'sky' in it, but hell, I searched for several days and I can't find it looking for those tags, so I wouldn't count on that.
    Anybody played that kind of game? Anyone recalls it? Please help.

    For what game system did you have the game on or was it on PC?
     
  4. Not that - note, Race tracsk were located in the sky/fluffy cloudy heaven
    It was on PC
     
  5. Re-Volt? Was it that one?

    To be honest - don't go there. Leave it as a memory. Nostalgia never did anything good to me. I had a few games that I played when I was a kid and when I came back to them after years I couldn't find joy in playing them any more. The memories got spoiled.

    And if you really insists on knowing what the game is, what would really help would be how long ago you have played it, graphics style, any special sound effects that stuck in your head. If it was PC - what operating system were you using at the time? When you say it was old game - I'm automatically thinking about times before Steam even existed.
     
  8. Getting Gran Turismo 1 iso after all these years was one of the best thing I did in my life tho x)
    Semi realistic roads, just pure road floating in the sky, when every race began a beep sound played that reminds me of Noddy's horn, cars looked rather cartoonish, Windows XP, played it some 12 years ago. If you fell out of the track you respawned at the last checkpoint. In puzzle mode you most often had to push blue balls out of the track or get them destroyed in some other way.

    I'm surprised nobody has asked about these yet.

    Perspective: Was it top down, 3rd person, 1st person, etc.

    Graphics: How were the graphics, was it modern enough to have models like pretty much all racing games today, or did it use sprites similiar to rad racer and the old gta games.

    Vehicle/Character selection: Could you select any racers and if so, who? As for vehicles naming brands and models may help to slightly narrow it down. The fact that all the cars are convertibles makes me think that this game is focused on warm and sunny environments, as it wouldn't make sense to have your top down in the rain or snow.

    Colors: This will seem weird but if you remember any colors that jump out at you then that would be useful in narrowing down an image, the semi-realistic roads makes me assume that the game is very brown and black.

    Sequels: Do you remember if the game had any sequels and if so how many it had? If it did you will most likely not remember the sequels very well either but it could be of some help.

    Obstacles/powerups: Any specific obstacles or powerups jump to mind? Or were there no powerups at all?

    Hope you can find it man, just don't keep your expectations high. In my experience if you don't expect much of the game currently but recognize it's importance in your past and present it'll allow you to be more satisfied with whatever answer you receive.
     
  10. Perspective: 3D, camera behind the car

    Graphics: Graphics not overwhelming, asphalt roads and kinda cartoon-ish cars

    Vehicle/Character selection: Vehicles were all the same - RC cabriolets, you could customise color of paint, wheel style and color of windshield.

    Colors: Asphalt roads located in sky that could either be clear blue or orange if map was on sunset

    Sequels: I don't think it had any

    Obstacles/powerups: I don't remember any powerups at all. There were sometimes ramps, cones and blocks on your way, at some tracks patches of ice that caused you to slide off the track and fall off the sky. Checkpoints were there, they were like a normal end of race line on the raod, but they had purple stars particles floating above them

    Hope you can find it man, just don't keep your expectations high. In my experience if you don't expect much of the game currently but recognize it's importance in your past and present it'll allow you to be more satisfied with whatever answer you receive.

    Generally
    Juiced
    Mad tracks (This seems to fit very well.)
    Midtown madness
    Planet hot wheels
    Rollcage
    Scud Race
    Scorcher
    Ultimate race pro

    The list doesn't completely adhere to what you've said the game is like, but it's mostly just games that had enough similar concepts to warrant mention. That's about the most I can help out, hope you find it.

    Generally when you think of your childhood games you think they have the best graphics ever since that was the standard back then. When I came back to South Park rally on the ps1 I had trouble playing it because the graphics were much worse than I expected.

    Also does anyone know of an Xbox or Xbox360 game in which you run up a corkscrew thing jumping and sliding over lasers? You play locally with friends if you hit a laser you get slowed down until you get too far back and get eliminated. It has basic 1 coloured characters. I'm pretty sure it's like some sort of gamemode rather than a full game and might come with the game bundled with the console. I don't have any consoles so I know barely anything about games on them, but I played this game with my old neighbour.

    "Game is not Sky Track" ::D:

    Also forgot to ask if you remembered any publishers / developers, that could easily help find it.

    Checked wikipedia from 1997 to 2010. My head hurts and I still didn't find it. I think I'll stop there.
    Either way, thanks everyone who helped me, I highly appreciate it :heart:

    Lock.
