Stunt Mode - It could be a steep downhill track, the car version of a skate park or a rally track full of intense jumps. Get the most points in an allotted time by pulling off aerial 720°s or 900°s, back flips, chain flips, master flips and any other spectacular stunts.

Platform Mode– This is for drivers who like a real challenge. The toughest tracks await competitors as jumping, manoeuvring and cornering are put to the test on challenges where only perseverance will prevail.

Puzzle Mode– Racers must build tracks in accordance with predetermined starting places, finishing places and checkpoints. Once track editing is complete, racers need to get the best time possible to complete the challenges. If players fail, it may not be their driving, but their track editing that is at fault.
