In the year 2560, humanity has spread throughout the universe, coming into contact with different forms of life, and establishing fruitful cultural and technological relationships, as well as commercial ones.

The billionaires of this time, bored tiwh their emotionless way of life, devised a new entertainment based on the old formula 1 races.

The new races tiwh ships and circuits full of traps and dangers, began to be called Space Racing.

Nobody wanted to participate in this madness, so they looked for prisoners to be pilots. The prize for winning and not dying trying is your freedom.

Good luck!


Feel the speed of your ship, run, dodge competitors and traps on the toughest circuits you will ever see. They won't let you relax for a second, keep your eyes open and put your abilities to test, every curve, every jump, every trap, everything is designed to put your skills to the limit.

Space Racing is a game made for the zx-dev mia and demakes competition ( https://zx-dev-media-demakes.proboards.com ). It's probably the first racing game to use a fake 7-mode technique on a real 128kb zx spectrum (no specialized chips, just a 8-bits z80 processor).


The Space Racing Grand Prix consists of 8 circuits in which you must finish in the top three in order to move on to the next circuit. If you don't get third place or your ship explodes during the race, you will lose a life. You have three lives to finish the grand prize.

Remember that your ship is equipped with a shield system that will withstand several impacts. You can recharge the shield in the fast pit areas.

You are allowed to use the boost system once for each lap, be sure to use it at the best time.

On the track you can find:

  • Turbo Zone: your ship accelerates to the maximum if you pass through this area.


  • Slide Zone: your ship's stabilizer system loses control in this area.


  • Magnetic zone: The ship's propulsion system loses power in this area.


  • Pusher Bouncer Zone: When colliding with this zone your ship will be pushed abruptly out.


  • Electric Zone: All ship systems are affected when passing through this area.


  • Fusion Zone: If your ship passes through this area it will merge with the road and you will lose a few seconds.


  • Box Zone: Passing through this area will improve the condition of your shield.


  • Jumps: gain momentum and jump as far as you can. Be very careful where you land, if you fall outside your ship will explode.


  • Other ships: Try to avoid them, otherwise they will push you to the edge of the track.


In your ship you can see two lights (B green light is for boost armed, you can use with fire button, D red light is turn on when the ship is reciving damage).

At front you can see two indicators SPD (speed indicate actual velocity) and SHD (shield indicate shield condition), if shield go down your ship explode, use the box zone.
