DragRace is a drag racing game. Two players control a drag racing car and must try to get to the finish first. Each player has a steering wheel, gas paddle and gear shift to control the car. Players can push down the gas paddle as soon as the starting light goes yellow, but can only shift out of neutral after it goes green. When the pitch of the car's sound changes, or the physical tachometer goes into the red the player should shift gear for maximum speed. If gas is not let go when shifting the car does a wheelie. Engines can also explode if players do not shift gear at all. The car will slowly drift to the side and the player must counter this with the steering wheel. It's also possible to race against the computer.
