Description

Timing smiled on Gremlin with this licensed Formula 1 simulation, as Nigel's long quest for a championship had finally come good. The game was pitched somewhere in between a full-blown simulation like F1 GP and action games like Continental Circus. Only 12 cars were in each race, which could last from between 3 and 20 laps.

Before each race you can customize wing downforce, gear ratio, tyre selection and fuel load choices – pitstops are a standard feature of the longer races. The 16-bit versions include a unique 'Improve With Mansell' mode, in which a digitized version of Nigel's head appears in the top corner of the screen, offering instructions and praise.

Trivia

Amstrad CPC version

Gremlin was close to can the game's release, claiming that it wanted to concentrate on the 16-bit market. However, due to Amstrad Action's readers campaign, which swamped publisher's office with letters demanding the game's release, the title finally reached the shelves. It appeared for the CPC 6128 only, and was put on both sides of one 3-inch disk.
