"The Trojan Horse is a story from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside including Odysseus."

- Wikipedia

A wooden horse shouldn't be too hard to pixel, right? However, what if you only got 4 colours?

We are all to familiar with the classic version of a death race. Badass looking muscle cars right out of Mad Max 2 which try get to the to the finish line first not without doing their best to kill their opponents.

However, how would such a race look in ancient times. You can go as far back in history as you want, just make sure that your vehicle doesn't have an ordinary petrol engine. A war chariot with a ballista or even a steam-powered weapon on 4 or even 2 wheels, everything goes.
