Try the first game option for best results, where you control the pace of your race, while the computer takes control over the steering.In the second option, you get to steer as well but, be warned, this is very tricky, so get used to the pace first before you progress.This really is a superb simulation, with excellent sound effects to build up the big race tension.

What else ? Oh, just a couple of totally excellent blasts like Combat Zone, BMX Ninja, Dead or Alive, Army Moves and Turbo Bike. Had enough yet ? You have?Well tough luck, as there are still a few wacky offerings left that should provide a little light relief from the hard blasting, though they are not pushovers either.

CPCrulez[Content Management System]
L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
