In the distant future of the year 2001, the mind-machine interface has become a reality and the ability to control machines through the power of thought is now possible. Many types of machines were created using this technology, including powered suits called "component muscle" that give the wearer incredible running speed. However, because of misuse of this technology, it was outlawed for general use and is now reserved only for military purposes...and for a famous sports tournament called Running High.
Running High is a high-speed futuristic foot-race game for one player. There are six racers to choose from, and three tracks (with a fourth unlocked after clearing the first three). Each racer has different abilities, and all of them will play dirty in trying to be the first to the finish. You can attack the other racers with punches, knock them down, and vault over them.
