About

Rocket Powered Machines is a futuristic racing game in which speed and skill are key to winning and every split second can be the difference between victory and defeat. Inspired by a multitude of games such as F-Zero, Mario Kart, Kirby Air Ride, Micro Machines and Wipeout, Rocket Powered Machines takes everything that makes these games great and merges them together to create the ultimate racing experience.

 The main focus of RPM is to give you the chance to speed around a large selection of tracks over the span of a number of cups, designed to progressively test your might and push your skills to the limits.
 As well as being able to play the game solo you also have the opportunity to race with up to 7 others in a range of games modes and courses designed to test your skill until there's only one player left.

 Rocket Powered Machines is made up of a range different game modes, the main focus being the Grand Prix and Vs modes which are comprised of 25 tracks split across 4 cups:
Knights Cup – The Knights Cup is the first cup you will have access to at the start of the game. This cup contains 6 tracks which are designed to be fairly easy in order to ease you into the experience and get to grips with how to play.
Queens Cup – The Queens cup is unlocked by completing the Knights Cup. This cup contains 6 tracks which are designed to be challenging whilst still being accessible enough for less experienced players.
Kings Cup – The Kings Cup is unlocked by completing the Queens cup. This cup contains 6 tracks which are designed to put your skills to the test and as such are harder than the tracks found in the previous two cups.
Fans Cup – The Fans cup is unlocked by completing all three of the previous cups. It contains 7 tracks which have been designed by Kickstarter backers which means that each track will be varied and offer its own unique challenges.

Rocket Powered Machines allows you to choose from a range of 16 Ships. 11 of the ships will be designed by us whilst the other 5 will be designed by Kickstarter Backers. All of the ships will fall into one of three weight classes: light, medium and heavy. These classes will affect the performance of the machines in areas such as speed and handling so choosing the right machine for the right track is important in order to ensure victory.

Rocket Powered Machines features a range of game modes where up to 8 players will be able to compete against each other in contests of power and skill, these are covered in more detail below.

  Rocket Powered Machines features a range of game modes which can be enjoyed in either single or multiplayer action. These include:

Grand Prix – Compete with up to 4 players and additional AI opponents over 4 cups in this 8 ship free for all to prove that you truly have what it takes.

VS – Up to 4 players battle in a split screen race of speed and skill to secure 1st place and ultimate victory.

Party Mode – 8 players compete on one screen in this frantic scramble to be the first one to the finish line.
