The game was a major hit on the arcades in 1986 and was notable for its pioneering graphics and music and ported on the 8/16bits on 1987.
The player controls a man driving a Ferrari Testarossa convertible with his girlfriend in the passenger seat. However, this game did not have an official Ferrari license (unlike its sequel Out Run 2, released many years later). Starting at a coastal area, the player must pass through four checkpoints between five laps within a set time limit. Before every checkpoint, there was a fork in the road, allowing the player to enter one of two different environments. The game was a major hit on the arcades and was notable for its innovative hardware (including a moving cabinet), pioneering graphics and music, a choice in both soundtrack and route, and its strong theme of luxury and relaxation.
All 8bit ports didn't even look this close to the arcades in graphics and gameplay. The C64 port is playable, offering way smoother scrolling than the CPC version (which almost unplayable!) and some nice graphics taken from the original. Still a mediocre game though. The is great I think, offering all original tunes along with some catchy SFX during gameplay here. The best 8bit home-computers ports, followed by the ZX Spectrum version!
