Name this game?

Postby RobC » Sun Nov 02, 2014 3:59 pm

Does anyone remember a black and white (probably Mode 4) car racing game?

I remember playing it at school around 1983 or 1984 - it may have been from a magazine or book listing as I think it was written entirely in BASIC. I don't think it was a commercial release as it didn't have any copy protection - I remember using VDU 19 to change the colour scheme...

You viewed the road from above and had to avoid other cars and stray tyres. I think all the graphics were done with user-defined characters.

I can't remember what it was called but would love to play it again!

Thanks,

Rob
