|At long last, a decent driving game for the CPC. This game is a lot of fun. Graphics are superb, colourful, detailed, large sprites, perfect use of Mode 0.
The racing moves at a good speed, controls are simple – push forward and steer left/right, fire to switch between high/low gear. Good use of sprite scaling to give the illusion of distance and some nice smoke animations from the tires when taking corners too tight.
Five characters to choose from, five race areas with five stages to each. You need to complete four laps and come in top three of each stage to win.
Plenty of skill, plenty of variety.
Tracks are nicely designed and great fun to race. The elevated sections help provide a really nice pseudo-3D feel to the action.
