Sie dürfen sicher sein, daß ich nach Durchspielen von über tausend Spielen vorsichtig mit Urteilen geworden bin. Wirklich begeistert und überzeugt wurde ich von Quest For Tires. Mehr ist dazu nicht zu sagen.

Having said all that, this is pure and unadulterated (no added colour, no preservatives) arcade action - and it's still got plenty of natural fizz!

Although the title has little relevance to the game - other than the fact that it is the name of one of the US BC cartoons - and the graphics are nothing to write home about, BC has me hooked. I find his on-screen antics very addictive.

The controls are quite responsive and you can adjust your speed using the side buttons. Speed control is key to completing some stages, but it also serves to allow veterans to whiz through those easy early stages. One noticeable flaw is that your speed doesn't reset between stages, so if you were going full bore at the end of one stage, you're thrust into the next one at the same breakneck speed. BC's Quest offers simple arcade fun in a cartoon world. It's occasionally frustrating, but more often addicting.

Tout récent, BC ressemble à Schtroumpf à beaucoup d'égards: Personnage de télévision, certes moins connu, animation très proche du dessin animé en particulier par la translation des différents plans dans l'espace. Son gros avantage est d'être disponible sur plusieurs machines et d'offrir une variété plus grand dans les tâches à accomplir, agrandissant de beaucoup son public potentiel.

Quest for Tyres is a well programmed game with small details which raise it above others but I wonder how addictive it is. There is little variation in the gameplay and it could become quite boring.

You have to be pretty quick on the joystick or keyboard to steer Thor successfully through all the obstacles he encounters - and the game does get irritating addictive.
Commodore 64Zzap! (May, 1985)
Easy to get into. Unfortunately it's quite easy to finish. US software showing it's age again.
Apple IIMicro 7 (Nov, 1984)
La réussite de ce jeu tient pour autant dans son mécanisme que dans tous les détails qui l'accompagnent. Cette version est décevante et incomplète.
