Toy Racer is the sequel to Toy Commander. It was developed by No Cliché, published by Sega and only released in Europe for a budget price of £5 (where £1 of this would go to charity). It was marketed as being an online game, and as a result has no AI players to race against in single-player mode.

A North American version, set to debut shortly after the European copy, was seemingly announced[8], but never materialised.

Charity

A percentage of the game's sales were given to various children's charities across Europe.

In the UK £50,000 was raised for the ELSPA Entertainment Software Charity[9]. Jean-Pierre Papin's Neuf de coeur (Nine of Hearts) foundation received 90,000 Francs from French sales[10], where 10FF of the 69FF price was given to the charity[7]. In Germany and Austria three Deutsche Marks from every game was donated to Herzenswünsche e.V. (Heart Wish)[6] and Saint Anna Children's Hospital in Vienna[5] respectively.

History

The online portions to the game where brought back online in 2014[11][12] and supports both the Modem and the Broadband Adapter.
