There's a game I played a long long time ago that maybe people can help me look up. I've never been able to find it in years of searching.
I believe the game was on NES and it was a racing game. However, you were in spaceships and you raced around planets. I don't believe there were weapons but you could knock people off the side of the planet and they had to respawn. You could also purchase upgrades for your ship. I remember the game was an absolute blast but never been able to find it again. And this had to have been 20 years ago give or take.
