What is Volunteer Speedway?
Well, it’s like this. You see, Volunteer Speedway is a game that’s been around for as long as video games have been around. However, these days it’s been around long enough for anyone to know what it is. Basically, in this game, all of the racers are volunteers. They drive as fast as they can to give blood, and the last racer standing wins.
How does it work?
Each racer is given a little bandage to put on their finger before they start racing. When the checkered flag falls, the blood begins to flow, and the bandages come off. The player who’s blood goes the furthest wins. So, it’s like finger-in-the-dike, but with a purpose!
Where Can I Play Volunteer Speedway?
You can play Volunteer Speedway at home, on most gaming devices, or on the go with a mobile device. However, the only legal way to play Volunteer Speedway is on a DVD or USB drive that you buy from the official website. These days it’s hard to find legit copies of video games, especially older games on DVD or USB drives, so it’s better to get them digitally than physically. This way, you don’t have to worry about running out of discs or having to buy new ones.
Why should you play Volunteer Speedway?
It’s an oldie but an oldie for a reason. This game has been around since the early 80s, and even then it was a popular early 80s game. So, if you’re looking for something different, or if you just want to try out a game that you know is good then go for it.
Once you play through the first couple of rounds you’ll realize how fun it can actually be, and how addictive it can get. Besides, in these days, it’s always nice to have a game that’s a little bit more educational. As a kid, I always wondered why the bad guys in cartoons were always catching fire. This game helped me learn how it all worked, and now as an adult, I can appreciate that they were right in front of a furnace most of the time. I guess they just had bad luck.
How Do I Play?
The basic idea behind this game is pretty simple. You just need to tap the screen to make the car go forward. However, that’s easier said than done. This game has always been a bit confusing because, well, there are so many different ways that the cars can move, and it can be a little bit tricky to figure out how each one works. It doesn’t help that, as I mentioned before, a lot of the cars look the same. So, to make matters worse, in later versions of this game (especially when played on mobile devices), the cars have learned to fake their way through the race, so it can be hard to tell who’s who. All of that being said, once you get the hang of it, you’ll realize that there’s a method to the madness. Also, there are hints in the form of cartoon cut-scenes that pop up at the right time during the race. They’ll tell you when to tap the screen to make the car go forward, or to speed up, or slow down.
It’s an odd fact about this game that, though it’s been around for as long as it has been, it’s always been a bit of a misnomer. Many people think that this game is about “racing for blood” or some such nonsense. It’s actually about “racing for charity”. When you tap the screen, or wave your hand in front of the TV, or computer screen, you’re not actually “racing” anything. You’re just making a blood donation. It’s all about helping others.
What If I Don’t Want To Play For Charity?
If you’ve ever seen the movie “Hollywood Heroes”, then you know exactly what happens next. The main character, played by James Woods, refuses to put on a bandage and play his part in this blood drive that’s happening at his local church. So, the scene switches to another one, where the pastor gives him an ultimatum: either play the part, or don’t come back to the church. Well, you can probably guess what happens next.
In the end, the main character, Woods, played by James Woods, does as he’s told, and puts on the bandage. However, in doing so, he realizes that he’s made a huge mistake. He feels that he’s contributed to the bad side of society, by playing a part in this fraudulent activity. He decides to quit the game, and walks off into the sunset, never to be seen again.
Luckily, Woods is an exception rather than the rule, and there are many others out there who want to play for charity. So, if you’ve ever wanted to play an old-school racing game, but didn’t want to play for charity, then you might want to look into other, less nefarious options.
The Bottom Line
Ultimately, you’ll have to decide whether or not you want to play for charity. There are a lot of pros and cons to both options. On one hand, you have the nostalgia factor of playing an old-school game. On the other hand, you have the knowledge that you’re playing for a good cause. It’s something to think about.
