Title: The Last V8
Posted: February 01, 2009 (04:35 AM)
There was, in the past, an exciting-seeming overhead perspective driving game for the Commodore 64, with an absolutely kicking Rob Hubbard synth score, called The Last V8. The main thing to know about this game is that the Last V8 itself was a car which was so outrageously, skull-destroyingly difficult to control that you'd usually die on the 2nd or 3rd corner you tried to turn. You'd load the game, listen to the cool music, try and drive around a few measley corners and then watch your car explode. Game Over.

Well, that was in 1986. I looked up a youtube playthrough of this piece of 80s insanity tonight, and to my fascinated but utter horror, it reveals that, if you don't crash, the duration of the entire game is approximately two minutes. At which point a message appears saying 'You made it!'

They don't make 'em like they used to.

I present to you, ladies and gents, in its entirety, this video a kindly gent has made of The Last V8. Remember as you watch that the car essentially cannot be controlled - without trying to indulge in this fantasy, the video will just look ever stupider and more incomprehensible to you than it no doubt already will.

That's a pretty kicking soundtrack for an odd, odd game.
