We play, and play, and play, in the score chasing mode

One cup of Speed Racer lore. One cup of Mad Max universe...

Car Battler Joe tells the cliched story of how Joe Todoroki went out of the comfort of his bedroom to drive through the wasteland of Galacia in pursuit of his estranged father. Rumour has it that he joined a band of misfits in order to destroy the same sport that made him the most famous...

Adding a whole new dimension to pixel art
