Global Gears is a super-speedy street car racing game for teens where the rally race takes place in 5 different locations around the world. You have to successfully complete 3 challenging laps against 4 other cars in order to win virtual money and improve your vehicle. This hair-raising racing adventure requires expert reaction times and awesome driving skills where you get to blast around the track at break-neck speeds, competing against other drivers (the computer).
Compete in races in Europe, the USA and Australia in your quest to become the Ultimate Speedster. This old-school flash racing game will really take you back. If you think you have tactical driving skills, dogged determination and nerves of steel, we’ll see you down at the starting line to find out. VROOM, VROOM!
How to Play: Before the race begins, you can choose the color of your 4-wheeled beauty. You have some virtual income to start off with, so purchase a good car, engine and Nitro-Booster. The races take place in the global cities of Zurich, Turkey, Sydney, New York and Alaska. Before each race, you can back yourself to win. You get odds of 5-1, which means if you bet 100 virtual dollars, you earn 500 if you win.
Control your car using the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard: Up Arrow = accelerate; Down Arrow = reverse; Left and Right Arrows = steer. You can see your speedometer in the bottom right corner of the game screen. There is a map of the course in the top right corner – keep an eye on this so you know what corners and bends are coming up next. Along the bottom of the game screen is your Nitro-Booster. When it’s full, hit Spacebar to activate it. This gives you a turbo boost of speed, and you can easily outstrip your rivals.
You can see how many laps remaining in each race at the bottom of the screen. After the race, bring your virtual winnings to the upgrade shop and improve your engine, and purchase more Nitro-Boosters. Tip: Ease off on the accelerator as you approach sharp corners. If you go into them at full speed, you might crash into the wall which will slow you down more.
