Quotes from the developers:

12 Volt is a fast-paced action-racing game designed for current console and PC platforms. The game takes place on tracks similar to real life slot car tracks, which are located in- and outside a typical american house.

The cars can move freely on the track, they are not bound to a specific lane or slot like conventional slot cars are! This way the game combines the look of a die-cast-racer with the feeling of a full-physics arcade rally game!

Highly realistic physics enable the player to activate toys and tools that work as weapons against other players. Imagine plunging through a heap full of marbles crashing at you in a world that really looks and feels like a childhood dream-come-true. Special magnetic rails even allow you to hook on to the inner side of hairpins and drive through them at full speed!

12 Volt is the game that finally lets you drive with "real" cars on the coolest slot tracks you had ever hoped for! And, best of all, your Mom won't be able to say a single word when you wreck your miniature steamtrain with your Monster Truck!

I really don't see the point in slot racing computer games like that.

If you want to race 'virtual' cars in a video game you can race F1, Rally, NASCAR, etc in a 'realistic' environment.

If you want to have 'real' model cars, then you race RC or slot cars.

Why would you want virtual model cars?

*Computer software to plan/monitor a real life lot track not withstanding

QUOTE Why would you want virtual model cars?

1. because its silly and absurd
2. cos its fun
3. cos simulations have their own pleasures, just as model making does, so seeing aspects of small cars modelled is great
4. cos not all of us have the space to build huge scalextric circuits in our houses/garages/lofts/cellars
and finally
5. cos its there!

It is interesting to see the convergence.

The real slot tracks are going multi-lane and are being connected to the internet for arcade style gaming and certain games are coming back the other war introducing the structure of a 'slot' track to give a certain perspective and dimension to the racing. There was groove racer and now this (and I don't even follow these things - perhaps there are more).

It reminds me very much of Re-Volt...

And you can download that one for free...

Also very nice racing with R/C Cars...

And there are many downloadable cars for it!

Cheers
