Wacky Wheels (DOS)
Wacky Wheels was the PC industry's reaction to Super Mario Kart (SNES). It plays similarly and uses many of the game mechanics that the SNES game pioneered. You choose a cartoon animal to race your go-kart around a track while picking up bombs, oil slicks, fireballs, and hedgehogs to throw at the other racers. If you win the race you go on to the next track. There are also battle mode games where you skip the race and merely try to finish off your opponent. Above what the SNES game allows, Wacky Racers has a modem battle where you can race your friends from anywhere in the world.

Mark Klem's music varies from upbeat rock music to slower bass-driven tunes. There are also a few silly carnival tracks as well. The current recording was made of the General MIDI output, which doesn't sound identical to the AdLib audio that more people are probably used to. The titles are extrapolated from the file name of the ripped tracks.

The type 1 MIDI music was ripped from the Wacky.dat file. Track titles are listed in the header of the file as well as in the meta data of the MIDI files. There is also a KLM file (probably named after the music's creator) for each music file, but the contents of these files are unknown. The music was played through the Microsoft MIDI driver with output and recorded using Winamp.
