As leader of the Matchbox Desert Survival Team, you must drive your team into the deepest reaches of the harsh desert in complete darkness. Luckily, your Dune Dog comes equipped with powerful spotlights that can lead the way, while its super-charged diesel engine and tough 4x4 tires can tackle the toughest terrain. When it comes to survival, losing is not an option!
