Ignition released for Mac

Ignition released for Mac

Great news! A golden oldie race game Ignition, has been released on GOG.com!

In Ignition an exotic range of vehicles and around some of the harshest circuits ever devised, you’ve got to ram, nudge, barge and otherwise cheat your way to victory. If you spot a sneaky shortcut, then use it – if your opponent’s hugging the cliff edge then give him a nudge and a salute as you cruise into the lead and he cruises into a deep gorge.

Out on these panoramic race circuits, you’ll get to drive the weirdest range of vehicles. Speed merchants can try the Bug for size, style victims can hop in the Redneck and those with a taste for the bizarre can drive the bright yellow school bus through the opposition.

Trick out over 40 authentic licensed cars with parts from over 15 real-world manufacturers, then turn your customized ride loose on the streets of 3 cities across the USA.
