Stunt Car RacerSTORY / GAMEPLAY
The action takes place on a raised roller-coaster style track with ramps and jumps, highly banked curves and other cool obstacles! This makes controlling the vehicle extremely tricky and you may occasionally find yourself whizzing off the course! This means that you either lose valuable time while waiting to get back on track or damage your precious four-wheel-driver. On a circuit you will race against a second vehicle that lines up next to you you on the grid line. The main goal is to beat your opponent within 3-laps. The Amiga and ST versions support local LAN gameplay in which two computers can link-up via their serial ports. Of note is that the two player mode is truly awesome!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
Ok, the visuals look nice but not fancy. Each track is drawn by 3D objects such as tracks and cars (the Amiga and ST versions have just a little more detail at the backgrounds, like some vector mountains). The only detail presented in 2D is your vehicle's dashboard and the engine. This way, the programmers managed to successfully creat an intense speed feeling. Each track undulates realistically and is done in pure 3D graphics without the need of too much detail. The MS DOS version runs on EGA mode only but the speed is faster and smoother compared to its ST and Amiga counterparts. The game's sound is quite limited with some basic sound effects like the engine and the crashing sound!
