Re-Volt is the multi-platform game that this Wiki is all about. It was created by Probe Entertainment (Acclaim Studios London) with American assistance from Iguana Entertainment (Acclaim Studio New York). The two companies have since gone defunct. In July, 2010, Korean publisher, "We Go Interactive Co., Ltd," located in Seoul, acquired all copyrights from Throwback Entertainment.

Besides being a simulation/racing game, The twenty-eight remote control cars defend themselves with ten unique weapons on the fourteen available tracks. Game Concept was created by Paul Phippen and Simon Harrison, and the project was lead and directed by Nick Baynes.
