HP JetSpeed v3.3 Description:
is a high-speed racing game that lets you play solo or race with up to three of your office colleagues across a LAN. The game demonstrates the benefits of HP JetDirect print servers through compelling interactive entertainment. There are three tracks to race on, and each track gets progressively more difficult. The objective of the challenge is to beat your opponents and achieve a Race Qualifying time.
A bird's-eye view of the racing track allows drivers to choose the optimum racing line as they speed through a digital office, weaving past print servers, PCs and CD-ROM towers, to lap the LAN.
HP JetSpeed tests drivers' racing prowess and their knowledge of HP products; an understanding of the office equipment, shown trackside, is critical to maximising race performance. Badly-configured printers en route can cause power drains, while HP JetDirect products (print servers and CD-ROM towers) provide tactical turbo boosts and power surges that provide a race advantage.
A "Tips and Tricks" section provides essential race and product information, identifying sources of power boosts and turbos.
All racers begin with a standard slot car, but high-performing drivers can qualify for a series of four possible car upgrades to reflect their lap speeds and racing proficiency. Slot cars can be swapped for a London taxi, a pickup truck, a Jaguar XK8, or the ultimate car, a black F355 racing Ferrari.
Track lap times are recorded automatically on personalised leader boards, and expert F355 drivers can submit lap times to the HP JetSpeed Web site to compete for prizes and a place on theHP JetSpeed Champions League worldwide leader board.
