TrackMania + Power Up! Expansion Pack (PC)

Please note, this pack contains both TrackMania and it's Expansion Pack: Power Up!

Original, fresh, innovative, TrackMania is more than just a simple car game. A cutting edge blend of arcade, SIM and puzzle games, TrackMania is set to be the first in a new and unique genre of racing game that will truly bring the game back in to gameplay.

Using the simple and intuitive editor, you can let their imaginations run wild and build your own crazy tracks, modifying them block-by-block, to create complex and spectacular tracks. Then, when the tracks are completed, you can test your creations in real-time, and experience all the fun and excitement of high-speed racing.

TrackMania offers a choice of three distinctive gaming environments; Desert, countryside, and snow. Each location has its own unique vehicles and handling controls, you must learn to adapt your driving techniques in order to master the tracks in each of the different environments.

You will be given a choice of over 300 different blocks from basic straight blocks to adjustable corner or sloping blocks. It is possible to build increasingly impressive tracks of up to a staggering 2000 blocks. One of TrackMania’s best features is the opportunity for you to create and share an infinity of original tracks.

Set to be the latest craze in online gaming, TrackMania’s highly competitive and addictive multiplayer mode allows you to challenge players worldwide on several competition types. The game network is built to allow every player to participate; from casual gamers with a low speed connection to hardcore gamers with a high speed connection.

With TrackMania, Nadeo has endeavoured to lay the foundations of a strong gaming community. The original gameplay and incredible freedom of the TrackMania world will ensure a continued flow of new, more intense, and fun tracks from a committed and contributive community. Your creativity will be fed by the availability, through the games dedicated server, of brand new blocks made by Nadeo, and some of the best tracks made by the players themselves.

When playing TrackMania for the first time, you will only have access to a few of the blocks from the catalogue. These few blocks however will be sufficient to allow you to create your first tracks, and complete the first challenges of the game. With every completed challenge, and every new medal or best time achieved, you will win more and more of the games currency, coppers. Eventually these coppers will build up allowing you to buy new blocks to build more advanced tracks.

The first puzzle in the challenge mode, for example, requires you to find the most efficient way to connect two points on the grid and then proceed to race the track in the fastest time possible. Each time you achieve a faster time you receive more Coppers, thus allowing you to access more blocks in the catalogue. Each block has a different price according to its originality and its importance. For example, a loop will be more expensive than a straight road.

When enough blocks have been collected, you will be able to create unlimited tracks to play either alone or in multiplayer (LAN, dedicated internet Server or 2 players on the same PC). The dedicated TrackMania server, the true cornerstone of the game, will be directly accessible through the game interface allowing everyone to instantaneously face other players and will offer classification systems, clans and private games, new tracks and new blocks.
