Wacky Races has always been the perfect concept for a videogame, what with it offering a cast of gloriously eclectic characters, bizzarely customised vehicles and an array of perilous courses. A number of games based on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon have been attempted in the past, but Warner Bros. hopes that its latest efforts for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS will be the most accomplished yet.
Wacky Races: Crash & Dash features all the characters and cars from the TV series including old favourites: Turbo Terrific driven by Peter Perfect, the Ant Hill Mob in their Bullet Proof Bomb, Penelope Pitstop, and the Mean Machine driven by Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley.
Each rally is peppered with traps and power-ups, including Wacky Widgets that allow players to perform each character’s special “Way Out Wacky” power, giving them the chance to get the upper hand over their rivals.
Wacky Races: Crash & Dash will be available on Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS in June 2008.
