From wiki

Death Rally is a top-down perspective racing video game developed by Remedy, published by Apogee and distributed by GT Interactive. It was released on September 6, 1996. In the game, which some people say was widely praised as one of the best games of the year,[who?] the player starts with $495 in their pocket and a lowly car named Vagabond (based on the VW Beetle), and must compete in deadly races where all cars are armed, and win money by finishing top, collecting money bonus or fulfilling missions. The final goal is defeating the Adversary, the undisputed king of Death Rally.
