In the game, you play with one of five characters (four normal, one hidden, though it's stated Lizard Tail is also playable) and haul goods accross four levels while beating Lizard Tail, your main (cheap) rival. After the first level, you can add trailers that alter your driving ability but offer greater score rewards. There are also bonus parking stages and six seperate parking challenges, but the game is relatively short in its entirety (its an arcade port, so this is not hard to imagine).
The thing I don't like is the gameplay. I have no problem with the physics or length, but the way in which you beat the computer is almost random as Lizard Tail speeds by at over 100mph and they actually had to program pre-designated spots where he'll stop and wait for you just so you have a fighting chance, which I just find stupid. As he also has crazy rubberband physics, beating him on courses will sometimes require you to drive SLOWER, as he won't make his stops if you pass him at the points he'd normally stop at and his speed and inability to slow down during any terrain (unless he actually chooses to do so, which isn't often) allows him to take shortcuts you normally wouldn't be capable of taking as you have almost no time at the end of any level... extra seconds should've been worth like $10,000, not a measly $100.
Anyway, this is a video of the game in action. Enjoy.
