Wrecked: Revenge Revisited is a shared screen combat racing game from the creators of Mashed and Micro Machines V4. In Wrecked, players vie for the lead on relatively short circuits, with an eliminator line chasing them. Anyone caught by the eliminator line is, you guessed it, eliminated. During the race corners are dangerous, as anyone who has taken geometry will tell you the line will cross a lot of distance on the outside corner. Power-ups litter each map and vary greatly, combining with the high speed racing to form a pretty darn chaotic game.
The game has 24 single player missions with set goals to beat and medals to earn, and that’s it for single player content. The game sports four player offline and online multiplayer and customization options for vehicles as well as race rules, and an XP system which grants players more customization options as they play the game. There are six tracks across which players will turn and burn, and four cars (all of which play identically) to choose from.
The first trailer for Wrecked: Revenge Revisited (formerly known as Gas: Fuel for Fun) hit the web this morning. The game is from former Micro Machines developer 505 Games and has a strong tie to the classic series. Everything from the top-down, four car racing to the aggressive powerups screams spiritual sequel. From first impressions there are two major differences: it has a real world setting and it features current-gen graphics. Wrecked will feature a full single player championship as well as four player local or online play. To compare the trailer to the previous Gas trailer, hit the jump.
