Wacky Races (チキチキマシン猛レース-, Chiki Chiki Machine Mou Race) was an Atlus platformer for the NES. (A Game Boy Color/Dreamcast/PC/PlayStation/PlayStation 2 game of the same name came out in 2000, but was published by Infogrames and was a racing game.) The game is based on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon Wacky Races, starring Muttley and Dick Dastardly. In 2008, a version for the Wii was released, but it was a shooting game.
The player controls Muttley through three different areas (Hip Hop, Splish Splash and Go Go America) in typical platform action. By collecting 100 diamonds, Muttley gains an extra life and by finding a bone, Muttley can switch out another one of his weapons, adding a slight strategy element to the game
