Description

Competitors in this ITV television game show had to show their prowess on a range of vehicles including Buggys, Speedboats, Quad Bikes, Jetskis and Inflatables. Players of this licensed version must do the same, on horizontally and vertically scrolling levels on land and water. Many levels include enemy droids as well as inbuilt hazards, all of which must be avoided. The main unique event is The Hill, an assault course which takes place on foot.

Up to three human players can take turns to contest the various events. The exact sequence of events is randomized each time, which makes the loading from cassette potentially slow and frustrating

Trivia

Amiga version

The Amiga version had a sample of the show's presenter Martin Shaw's introduction, promising "some real action sports" followed by a big belly laugh. Amiga Power magazine suggested that the chortle was worth at least £7, but the game wasn't worth the other 99p of the price at that time.

Cancelled Konix port

A port was in development for the never released British Konix console.
