Description

A racing game in which four cars - up to three of them can be controlled by players - complete for the first place in over 20 levels.

These levels are divided into four themes, and a few of them are played at night: Although it's hard enough to tell which way to go in the eight-way-scrolling maps during the day, you're sure to hit many barriers and walls at night when only your headlights give you any clues about where to go.

Depending on how well you raced, you'll get money to upgrade your car - and you'll also need to refuel your car! There are three types of cars to choose from, and depending on what kind of terrain a level is on, making the right choice here can give you the edge.

Trivia

Though you may have to take my word for it until someone submits a scan, this game's packaging features a painting by SF artist Jim Burns that was also used five years prior as the cover to Fighting Fantasy gamebook #13. Both the painting and the gamebook are entitled "Freeway Fighter".
