Description (by MrFlibble)

The Need for Speed is a popular "light" racing game that focusses on the fun and action while simplifying the technical aspects that are so prominent in more realistic, simulation-minded titles in the same genre. Drive fast through a multitude of colourful, scenic tracks while listening to adrenaline-pumping soundtrack.

The demo includes one track and no music.
