Featuring twelve different tracks based on four themed environments - cityscape, hills, snow and a desert oasis - players can also select one of 32 vehicles from four categories. Each category is tailored for use within the different environments, with variations of speed, acceleration and handling and grip levels making specific vehicles ideal for particular locations.

Driift Mania also uses 'Contamination' where a player is marked contagious and must contaminate very other player within a set period, while the 'Cold Potato' mode charges the user with collecting said vegetable and holding on to it for as long as possible!
