Developer Nintendo
Genre Racing
Series F-Zero Series

A futuristic, high-speed racing game, set on winding, zero-gravity tracks. Choose from a huge selection of F-Zero racers and complete laps of each circuit in a certain position, finishing the race in first place. You are disqualified from the race if your power meter runs out or fall from the track, using up one of your limited extra lives.

Completing the first lap earns you Boost Power, letting you gain speed at any time at the expense of your Power bar. Recharge the Power bar by driving over the Energy strips.

As well as the main game, you can play the last-man-standing in Demolition Mode, beat your best times in Time Trial, or take part in multiplayer races for up to 4 players.
