Speed Duel is a very simple race game involving yourself and a computer car. You can select the speed
at which your opponent travles, the number of laps and the difficulty level. Once you've done that you
can start the race.
The idea of the game is simply to beat your opponent to the finishing post before losing all of your five
lives (a life is lost either when you run off the track of when you hit your opponent). After finishing the
race you are given a bonus for doing so and you may enter your name in the score table. The track isn't a
set one but gives random corners that are announced by signs with arrows on them.
The graphics and sound of the game are really awful with terrible track perspective, flat tunes and
unrealistic car control. I was amazed to find that the game is only about a year old - I though it
was a really early Commodore game. Even at its cheap price it doesnt' offer good value for money and
there are infinitely better racing games available.
