The sequel to 'Iron Man', this isn't as slickly programmed, but very playable. Racing takes place on 12 tracks ranging from a simple tri-oval to tortuous street circuits.

Though the game has a multiload, this is avoided via an option to just use the two tracks currently in memory. Another neat option is the choice of rotational or directional controls.

The action is standard Supersprint-style fare, apart from the inclusion of colour- coded pits. As in Lotus Esprit there's a gambling element as you decide how long to stay in the pits for refuelling.

A quicker pit crew can be bought, along with car improvements, in the pre-race shop.

Despite its blatant lack of originality, Indy Heat is very compulsive, particularly with two players - shame it doesn't allow three.
