HOW TO PLAY

 

This game is almost identical to

Speed Racer 3

The instructions are written below

and are almost identical also

except for the bits

in RED:

 

There are TWO cases:

HARD and EASY

 

9 - 6 is EASY

It is ABOVE ZERO

We know the answer is 2.

 

 

6 - 9 is HARD

It goes BELOW ZERO

We don't know what the answer is.

We need a trick to work it out!

Here is the trick:

 

ADD the COMPLEMENT

 

The complement of 9 is 1

So we ADD 1 instead:

6 - 9 becomes 6 + 1

in this game we will go one step further

and add the 6 + 1

to make 7

 

So 4 - 7 would become 4 + 3

5 - 8 would become 5 + 2

and so on

 

 

 

 

EASY Example

The number plate says "8 - 7"

The answer is easy: it is 1

It is ABOVE zero

 

 

To score:

Swerve into the "1" Lane

and crash the barrier!

 

If it is EASY

you score the same as in Speed Racer 3.

8 - 7 = 1

would be the final answer

in both games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HARD Example

The number plate says "1 - 8"

Who knows what the answer to THAT is!!!???

It goes BELOW zero.

It is HARD.

 

 

When it is HARD just

ADD the COMPLEMENT

Instead of TAKING AWAY 8

ADD the COMPLEMENT of 8

So

1 - 8

becomes

1 + 2

 

 

 

Swerve into the barrier

that says "1 + 2"

We go one more step.

We actually ADD the 1 + 2

to get 3.

 

 

 

 

...EVERYTHING

GOES

DARK

 

You are driving in the dark...

 

The number plate says "1 + 2"

The answer to that is 3

Crash into the "3" Barrier

to score a point!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SCORING

 

Each time you crash through a barrier

your score goes up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THIS HAS CHANGED

You only need to crash through 8 barriers

with only 1 mistake

to go to the next level

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you succeed at this level

WRITE DOWN YOUR CODE

for Desert Racer 5.

In the example above

the code is the word "max".

 

Your name

+

Your code

is the key to

opening Desert Racer 5.

 

Don't lose it!
