Racing Comrade! is a game in which you play as a soviet runner attempting to win races for the glory of the motherland. Performing well in a race grants a cash prize which can be spent on upgrading your runner's equipment and skills. The game allows for underhand tactics to be used but beware the party officials who frown on such behaviour.
The running is carried out automatically by the game; you attempt to influence the race and your runner's performance by activating the 'sprint' powerups and using other actions when appropriate. Your stamina decreases when actions are used but can be replenished by clicking on items strewn along the course or via the 'breathe deeply' action.
