This TrackMania demo allows you to play with 3 game modes: Solo, Multi and Network.
In solo mode, you play challenges. Those are trials of building and driving. In the first stage, you have to build an efficient track between the start, the possible checkpoints and the finish. There is a limited amount of blocs to do this. The second stage of the trial is to drive the fastest as possible to the end on your track.The solo mode also offers exclusive driving trials: "races" mode. Each trial (challenge or race) has three targets: bronze, silver and gold. The medals aquired enable the unlocking of next challenges.
The multi mode is playable up to 4 players. You race on the track that you build yourself. Goal of the game: to make the best score in a limited time. Players play alternately and each time a new record is made the player who has the worst time has to try to beat this record. Each player owns 5 minutes to play. After these 5 minutes, the player is eliminated. The winner is the one who has the bigger time left in his timer.
In Network mode, you join or create a race. To join a race, you just have to click on one of the displayed races. To create a race, go in "create" menu and chose a constructed track (samples) or build a new one. Before proposing your race to other players, you have to play it in order to validate the track. At the end of your race, select the "create a server" option. Your race will then be seen by other players and they will be able to join you.
