Winning a race no matter how - that's what Death Rally is about. Equip your car with the weapons of your choice and get upgrades to destroy your competitors and win all races. Good performance in races gets rewarded with money which can be spent on repairs and upgrades. Especially good positions and the destruction of other cars are well rewarded. Collect items to unlock new tracks, cars and powerful weapons.
The game has a top-down view and the car is controlled with a virtual steering wheel at the bottom left of the mobile device's screen. Another button is at the bottom right of the screen to use the equipped weapon. Most races take place with 6 cars in total, but that can vary in some game modes, e.g. 1 versus 1 races are also possible. During a race you can collect items from the track like ammo, nitro, repair sets or parts to unlock additional tracks, cars or weapons. A race ends after 3 rounds or if you have destroyed all other cars on the track because once a car was destroyed it does not respawn after a few seconds like in most other racing games of this kind.
