Patch 1.0.9

Hello racers,

we are getting a lot of feedback from Steam and Switch users and it is being quite useful to improve the game.
Patch 1.0.9 includes a major change in the shooting mechanic:

-Auto-shooting is now only enabled when the target is being moved. So the ship will not shot until the player decides so. It does not take too much time to get used to new behaviour, and we think it improves the player´s feeling.

-The turbos counter is now placed on the bottom box.

-We have increased handling speed of all ships, making them more responsive.

-The initial energy af all ships has been also increased.

-When a barricade is hit, it disappears sooner.

-Improved GUI on King of the Galaxy mode.

-Some circuits layout and elements has been tweaked.

We hope you like this new update, and if you have any question or suggestion, just use the discussion forum.

Original shooting & racing mechanic

Can you drive and shoot at the same time? Mercury Race will challenge you to keep an eye on the road and also on the enemies and items on the circuit.
The more enemies you destroy the more crystals you get to increase the speed of your ship.

Arcade & King of the Galaxy mode

Galaxies have their own leaderboards and achievements.

80´s style original soundtrack

Mercury Race has an original 80´s style original soundtrack made using real analog synthesizers from that era.
Enjoy this synth-wave / dark-wave music while trying to survive each road!
