World Rally is a racing game that was in development for the Sega Mega CD add-on, but it seems that the project was cancelled before being finished. Apart from a single screenshot found by Rod_Wod in an old magazine, we were not able to find any more info on this game. Could World Rally have been published under a different name?
Thanks to Rod_Wod for the contribution!

It seems to be a port of a the arcade game from Gaelco, World Rally: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0gTDNA1QuU
Mmmh I think I remember that article and I believe I found out it was released ( but I’m not sure, fuzzy memory ).
What’s the mag ?
I remember seeing that article too and can say for sure that the game was never released or heard of again. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if that screen shot was taken from Gaelco’s arcade game.
Yeah, maybe I remember wrong.
I’ll ask to Rod if he remember from which magazine he scanned that. I though too that this could have been a port of Gaelco’s World Rally, but i dont think that the screen is from the arcade version, as the HUD looks different
If it’s the same Rob_Wood that I knwo then the chances are that the scan came from a British magazine. Most likely Mean Machines.
Both of gaelco’s world rally arcade games where isometric this pic shows the above car view.
Looks kind of similar to a game was on the Genesis by way of the Sega Channel. It was one of the special unreleased games playable via the service. It was later released on the Jaguar as Power Drive Rally.
Its not power drive cos thats a European game this looks like a Japanese game power drive rally had ports for pc and md i think.but none of them look like this.this kind of game looks like many for the time.maybe its a sega channel game i’m not sure.
I think the scan came from a copy of mega a uk mag
most of my mags are british and some american.i only have a few japenese mags from the day i think the japanese magazines are no where near as good as the uk ones .cvg sega magazine mean machines sega are the best for unreleased sega games.

Should be a pseudo-port of this arcade game from 1991:
wow! Great find Celine :)
What was the name of that special Genesis game sevendead?
The mag is MegaTech issue 6 (June 1992), and yes as Celine found it looks like the screenshot is from the arcade game Drift Out by Visco.
