Killer Loop (also known as MagForce Racing) is a futuristic racing game released in 1999. It was developed by VCC Entertainment and published by Crave Entertainment.

Gameplay[edit]

The game takes place in a future where gasoline powered vehicles and paved roads have been replaced with electromagnetic vehicles and metal highways. Such vehicles are used for intense racing where vehicles could drive on bending, twisting tracks. The player has the option to have automatic or manual assistance on using their vehicle's magnets to drive on slopes, sideways or upside down in tunnels and on track sections that have no floor, only ceiling. The player could also use power-ups against other opponents picked up from the tracks. Race tracks included Moscow, Mars, Hawaii, the Himalayas, Needle Rock and the Orbital Wharf space station.

Soundtrack[edit]

The music soundtrack to this game consists of Techno/Goa trance music in a style well suited to the game and can be read directly from the PlayStation format game disc like a CD.

Soundtrack was made by kb (Tammo Hinrichs) who is now a member of Farbrausch on the European Demoscene - http://www.kebby.org

Demo Version[edit]

The Official UK Playstation Magazine released a demo of Killer Loop, on Demo Disc 52 released with the December 1999 issue. This included the Hawaii track and Coppermine as the soundtrack tune, to advertise the game and give players a feel for the game before committing to purchasing the full version.

In-Game Advertisements[edit]

There is a notable presence throughout the grandstands, buildings and scenery of the game of 'Killer Loop' logos in exactly the style of the logo seen at the Killer Loop clothing brand's website here http://www.killerloop.com/ suggesting that the game's name and the name of the premium clothing brand are more than coincidentally linked.
