Been trying to find this game that I played as a kid for a long time. The game is from around 1995 to 1997. Here's what I can remember about it:

- it was like horseracing but with weird/quirky characters
- you could bet on the races
- you could upgrade your characters attributes like for example "top speed"
- you could buy this cheat thing that gave your guy a boost at the start of a race
- you could unlock a fat guy character who was really fast

If anyone has any ideas or knows what game this is, i'd love some help. This has been driving me crazy!

No idea, but there's a reddit that might be able to help: https://www.reddit.c...ipofmyjoystick/

Thanks Cougar. For anyone who is interested, the game turned out to be Squirt Derby
