Formula Retro Racing is a retro 90's arcade racing game. This Virtua Racing style combines the simplicity of visuals and racing style with some proper attention to the skill needed to get to the front of the grid.

There are a range of tracks across various game modes to beat your personal best times and compete in the Formula Retro Racing leaderboards.

Classic arcade Checkpoint racing, where you have to get to the next checkpoint in time to keep going, is joined by a new Eliminator mode where the trailing cars are illuminated.

The mechanical simplicity and defiantly old school approach aren't for everyone, but whether returning to sentimental memories of misspent youth or introducing a new generation to the joys of these games, it joins Horizon Chase Turbo as a great reimagining of these games for a modern era.
