Developer: Activision, Inc.

Galaxy 5000: Racing in the 51st Century is a racing video game developed by Activision for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

This video game takes place in the future using an outer space atmosphere. It features the racing of futuristic craft that can battle each other for finishing spots in the race. Each craft is also upgradeable and with each upgrade comes better shielding and weapons. This video game would become the inspiration for the Super NES video game Rock n' Roll Racing. Primitive voice effects are used when the ships collide with each other; three of the phrases are: "Hey!," "Excuse me!," and "Watch it."

This is the only of two games that were developed internally by Activision for the NES, instead of outsourcing development to other companies, the other one was Ultimate Air Combat.

Music

For 1991, three talented composers Russell Lieblich, Pete Mokris and Richard Miles Boogar did a good job, writing MIDI files on an unkonwn sequencer, which was coded into an audio driver by Glyn Anderson. He wrote thirteen simple tracks, to fit the sci-fi/racing theme.
