A racing game called Ignition came to my mind today. I played it A LOT one summer with a friend of mine. It’s a simple arcade racing game that is closer to something like Death Rally than Grand Prix Circuit. It’s not that long either, so it would fit DGC very well. The tracks are fun and very diverse.
That reminded me of a Finnish gem: Death Rally!
It’s even less serious racing game where you have to buy/upgrade cars and weapons. It’s a really pretty game with addictive gameplay.
Death Rally is the first game of a small game developer called Remedy Entertainment.
Edit: Stupid me. Forgot to mention Ignition’s name.
