Deathtrack was a first person futuristic driving computer game produced for the PC by Dynamix and published by Activision in 1989.

There are two ways to win a race - be the first, or be the only one. Based in a futuristic America, the player races on various tracks across the country for money, which can be spent on armour, weapons and other modifications to protect and use against the competition.

Starting off with a small amount of money, the player chooses from one of three cars (either high speed, high firepower or heavily-armoured) and begins racing against other drivers. For each item you can buy, there are three variants - small/ineffective, medium/good and of course large/best.

The game uses 16-color EGA graphics to display photos of opponents and the 10 American cities in which the player raced. The track for each city is unique, as is each opponent's 3D polygonal car.
