Remember the coin-op with the car cockpit that physically span around when you crashed?
Well this conversion's nothing like it! Well, apart from the basic racing concept:
reach successive checkpoints within the time limit, avoiding other cars which cause
your car to spin round or even overturn.
Featuring jerky 3-D and dull, repetitive action, the game was originally slated,
getting a mere 40% in Issue 47. As well as 'the lurching track movement', Gordo
found the other cars made it too difficult to get round the track as they home in
on you and are very difficult to avoid.
Almost two years on, does all this criticism seem harsh! Nah! Let's face it, this
simple driving game is to motor racing what Fatty Phil is to dieting! It looked
like a budget game first time around; now it's just plain embarrassing!
