* The game can be run on Windows XP by installing the Microsoft .NET Framework (3.5) and running the game executable directly.
By default the executable is here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Suisoft\Retro Rat Race\bin\game\RetroRatRace.EXE
Use the brake in tight spaces (Space, Right Mouse, gamepad button or press the Rat Racer)
Avoid crashing into the green walls as this temporarily disables your racer, making it harder to get a medal.
Turn early - it takes time to counter inertia.
Some levels have tricks and traps. Watch the slow-mo replay after you die to see what happened.
If you get stuck on a puzzle, play through slowly and look at the switches and signals.
