This time you're at the wheel of the fabolous Ferrari F40 and in a race
against time in a bid to smash a stolen car racket - the only problem
is the guys involved in the racket are corrupt policemen!
As you go tearing through four states of American in search of the corrupt
police, you will also have problems with the honest road cops who don'tt
appreciate the sight of a Ferrari F40 crossing their state at 200 miles
per hour....But, it ain't that easy....
You must plan your route carefully from the maps of each state which
are displayed on screen and which show the actual American freeways that
you will travel on - Be careful, the shortest routes aren't always the
easiest as the sight and sound of a blue flashing light will soon make you
Your Ferrari is equiped with the latest radar which will enable you
to detect police road blocks which may have been set up to catch you,
therefore keep an eye on the Freeway junctions as you may be forced to
change your route!
At the beginning of the game, your starting position and the location you
have to reach will be shown on the map. You will have to consult the map
frequently in order to know the correct direction to take.
At each crossroad, your on board computer will indicate the direction
and number of the road you can take. The game represents the actual roads
of the 4 dtates of the America that you can travel in.
If you notice a road which would connect the one you're on, you can
cut across fields, but watch out for telegraph poles and milestones!
As soon as you start your engine, the countdown will start. If it
reaches zero, your Ferrari will explode!
Score and Bonus
Your score will increase with the distance covered. At the end of each stage, a bonus will
be added to your score. At the beginning of the 1st chase, your bonus counter will be
set to 10000 points (20000 at the 2nd chase, 30000 at the 3rd one....).
For each chase bonus the time allowed corresponds to the ideal route as estimated by your
on board computer. The counter goes down rapidly with the distance covered. Your bonus will
be earned if you arrive at your destination before the timer reaches zero.
