Although it borrowed elements from Super Mario Kart and Powerdrome, Psygnosis's WipEout was nevertheless a milestone for the racing genre, combining incredible speed with oh-so-trendy presentation to create a game-changing speed-fest.

Its creator is sadly now defunct, but WipEout continues to exert a tremendous amount of influence on futuristic racers - as Flashout 3D proves.

To all intents and purposes, this is essentially a rather shameless iOS clone of WipEout.
