The Games Machine (UK)
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.

Wer sich in diesen Tagen ein Rennspiel kaufen will, wird von neuen Programmen dieses Genres geradezu überrollt. Neues gibt's auch vom Programmierteam, das bereits den Hit "Grand Prix Circuit" auf dem Kerbholz hat: "The Cycles" nennt sich ihre jüngste Bleifuß-Software.
