Vehicular combat is a genre of video game in which the player battles against opponents using vehicles, whether they be cars, boats, planes, or on some occasions even hot air balloons. Vehicular combat can refer to a variety of games such as demolition derby video games as in Twisted Metal or Carmageddon, or even aircraft dog fighting games. Some racing games, like Mario Kart 64, feature a "battle" mode that can be seen as having elements of vehicular combat, but ultimately the main draw of that game is the racing, while vehicular combat features little no racing elements at all.
