The sprites are big and bold. However, detail has not been ignored: the handlebars are a good example of this, showing slick gear changes and sharp braking. Whether going left, right, up or down(!) a track, the feeling of motorcycling is always there. Speed is obviously a major consideration, and when the box says '8Mhz recommended' it means it! A fast enough PC with EGA graphics will suit all motorcycle and arcade fans.
