TrackMania DS is a game in the TrackMania series.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game offers gameplay similar to that of other TrackMania games. It features three solo modes: Race, Platform and Puzzle, and three of the existing environments: Stadium, Desert and Rally. Playing on tracks in solo mode earns players coppers which can be used to purchase blocks, skins and other tracks. The maximum number of coppers a player can earn is 1,048,575.

Players can also create their own tracks with the track-editor, which has over 300 blocks, including UFOs for Desert and hot air balloons for Rally, both of which were never featured on the console version. Another thing players can do is play in multiplayer mode with up to four friends. There is no online connectivity, though.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first game in the TrackMania series to be available on console, as well as the first not to be developed by Nadeo.
  • The game uses music which is remixed from the music from TrackMania United, TrackMania United Forever and TrackMania Nations Forever.
  • The music used in the trailers would later be used for the Desert and Rally environments in TrackMania: Build to Race.

Sequel[edit | edit source]

In 2010, TrackMania Turbo, a sequel to TrackMania DS, was released.
