Vanishing Point is a console based racing game released on the Dreamcast and the PlayStation. It was developed by Clockwork Games and published by Acclaim.


The game is provided with peculiar car physics, which can be experienced through various game modes, tracks and Cars. In the main game mode, Tournament, there is a bronze (2 tracks / 2 laps), silver (3 tracks / 2 laps) and gold (3 tracks / 3 laps) championship for each main vehicle. In each race of a championship, there is a time to beat and the other vehicles in the track are just traffic to avoid. Winning championships unlocks not only the next ones (Heat 1 unlocks Heat 2 and Heat 2 unlocks Heat 3) but also game features, such as cars, game modes and racing options. Starting with 2 cars, the player will then conquer almost all the game content through these championships. In another game mode, Single Race, the player can unlock the 8 main tracks, in their 4 different versions (Forward, Reverse, Mirrored FWD and Mirrored REV), by simply winning a race with a random car.
