Ignition was released by Interplay in 1997 for MS-DOS and is now considered abandonware.
In 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.
This game is controlled by the cursor keys, with right shift for turbo. All controls can be fully customised from within the games menu.
Use ALT+ENTER to toggle full screen mode, use Ctrl-F11 and Ctrl+F12 to adjust the game speed if it is running too fast or too slow. Use Ctrl+F9 to exit without using the menus.
We offer 2 different ways to download and play, the first is by using the installer and is the recommended way to download: simply download, install and play using the desktop or start menu items.
Some users may get a warning when using the installer, and Windows defender users may get a warning saying the application has been blocked. If this happens you can click “More Info” and “Run anyway” or use the second download, which is a simple .zip file. Download it and extract the .zip where you would like to run the game from – no easy-to-use icons or uninstallers are included with the .zip download.
