I played a demo of this game years ago on a PCFormat CD of my brother's. It was a sort of arena combat game, in, as I recall, small vehicles (not robots). In trying to remember the name, I keep thinking of the word Scarab, but I'm sure it wasn't S.C.A.R.A.B and I don't think it had the word Scarab in the title. It may, however, have had some sort of Scarab related reference in it. I just remember racing around this arena shooting other vehicles, and I remember it had a weird sort of atmosphere like a lot of games around this time did. No music, weird imagery, and so on. Not weird as in freakish, just....slightly odd. Any ideas?

No, definitely not. I remember the view was from close behind the vehicle and the graphics were 3D. It's not that old, compared to a lot of games on AB, I'd say it was about...'97, '98 maybe?

No, that's not it. Like I said, third person, uh, vehicle, camera view. I think it was set in a sort of dark future (ravaged by war, etc). Sorry I'm being so vague here.
