This licence of the Tom Cruise (Corky lookalike!??) film is a straight conversion of the Nintendo game. As such it's fairly playable, in a crude sort of way.

The Stock Car Championship racing takes place on oval tracks and thus soon gets repetitive.

The only tactical aspect is the choice when to make pit stops for repairs and refuelling.

Matters aren't helped by a bland colour scheme and poorly defined cars - including yours, which is viewed from behind.

Worse still, the computer cars' only strategy is to head straight for you, trying to knock you off the track. Frustrating.
