Smash Da Gas: A Funky New Multiplayer Driving Game For Immediate Release:

MooseMouse Media is proud to announce the public beta of “Smash Da Gas”.

Smash Da Gas is a new browser based, 3D, multiplayer racing and stunt driving game. Unlike most browser games, Smash Da Gas uses state of the art graphics, physics, and real-time multiplayer technology. The game features cartoon caricature "Chibi" style cars and richly detailed, funky environments.

In addition to time trials and multiplayer racing gameplay, Smash Da Gas has "Freestyle Hangout Parks" in which players can explore, show off, and chat. A wagering system adds another unique, exciting dimension to the game. Players can bet game currency on races with the ability to win or lose virtual fortunes. There are traditional racing environments, but the game also includes insane bowls, pipes, loops, jumps and drops. There is even a dirt track in which skilled drifting is a necessity to go fast.

Smash Da Gas is currently in public beta. All game functionality and artwork is complete. Additional cars, tracks, and customizations are currently in development.

Additional features:

• Controls tuned for mouse and keyboard input.

• Realistic drifting, counter-steering, burnouts, and even wheelies.

• Controls for in-air acrobats.

• Free to play. All cars, customizations, and trophies achievable without spending a dime.

• Secret Passages to strange and beautiful freestyle parks.

The game is currently in public beta. All game functionality and artwork is complete. Additional cars, tracks, and customizations are currently in development.
