The game centered on Quarky and Quaysoo O'Gandi, two space "elfs" that were green and yellow respectively. With the help of the player they raced through a town in vehicles ranging from cars to jet packs. To purchase vehicles, the player answered questions relating to science at stops along the way. Each stop had a theme: the construction site was simple machines, Clown College was chemistry, etc. There were three opposing teams: two tough street fighters, a pair of alien siblings, and a know-it-all named Odessa King. The game also featured an information book that ran over one-hundred pages long and taught science topics such as optics (via a run-in with the light police) and energy (with the help of Sheik Oil Slick).
