Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge
Copyright/Publisher: Gremlin Graphics, Release Year: 1990,
Genre: Racing Sports, Number Of Players: 1 or 2

This superlative conversion of the now-legendary Amiga game retains all the high speed thrills with superfast 3-D, complete with hills and up to six other cars on screen.

If solo games are fun, two-player ones are incredible. The split-screen view enables such dubious tactics as slamming on the brakes in front of your opponent to bump him to a halt.

Both drivers push each other to the limit, weaving around computer cars, scraping corner kerbs and even gambling on shorter refuelling stops in the pits.

A fascinating twist is that one of the players must finish in the top ten, so both qualify for the next circuit. Three skill levels comprise a total of 32 tracks, the harder ones strewn with rocks, boulders, slippery oil and water pool. Long-term challenge is provided by a World Championship.
