The Izzy's pizza in Bend, OR used to have this game. I remember playing it when I was a kid. I have it on retro compilations now, and it's fun even with a controller. More people should definitely look into this one, though I still recommend Super Off-Road on consoles. Good review, by the way!

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

I played this in the arcade on a few occasions (probably years or months apart). This review makes me feel I should have put in a few more 20 centses at one sitting. Because below unskilled there is another category I didn't leave, and it is 'incompetent' :)

But I guess I had no pocket money, and dad would let me play one game per occasion. Usually before a movie in town, or before we bought a hamburger while on holiday. So when I played this game and crashed really fast, I was unlikely to spend my one game money on it next time.

..lol. I just remembered - the first game I played must have been RC Pro AM on the NES. hm.

..But Offroad Racer on the Amiga is still a solid title, imo. Had massively better animation, gameplay and resolution compared to the nes version. Strange.. that I haven't heard of any solid remakes of that one..

Btw, great sentence:
"Most players will quickly realize the true nature of the deceptive diagonal path and avoid it."

:)

There's a "1080 degrees spin" in there, unless that was deliberate. Like the intro to drift and braking. The entire gradual throttle and break mechanism with an on/off button really was extremely good. Gremlin rescued that with Supercars - but Super Sprint did it best.

The 1080 degrees is intentional, because that lets people keep going in a straight line =D It does happen sometimes.

Thanks for the comments all! After playing it again (the last time was years ago), I was pleased by how well it has held up -- and how I was able to notice new things about it.

I really want to try this game now. Even in Pole Position, which seems inferior and less difficult, people managed to make it look so easy I got frustrated when I couldn't.

Once I learned to drive in real life, driving games got easier--so I'm thinking I missed out on a big sub genre I want to look into now. But I don't want just some schleppy driving game, and I want to try that shortcut.

And I'll cook myself a Tombstone pizza and pretend I'm playing it in a pizza parlor when I'm using MAME. You know, I'd forgotten about video games in pizza parlors.
