DescriptionRace your corvette against another human or computer player through an accurate reproduction of San Francisco. Choose between store models (stock or ZR1) or a tricked-up 'vette (twin turbo or "sledgehammer").
Use your on-screen map display to choose the best route -- there are multiple ways to reach the finish line careening through the streets of San Francisco. You can also switch between views, including left, right, rearview mirror, with or without dash, helicopter chase cam, or a combination of views.

TriviaOne of the few games to support EGA's 640x200 mode, which it used to display static scenes in fine detail over what EGA's 320x200 mode would allow.
During the development of this game, the large-scale communist attack on protesting Chinese students in Tian An Men Square occured. In memory of that event, one of the programmers snuck this string into the program executable:
IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO WERE MURDERED IN TIAN AN MEN SQUARE ON JUNE 4, 1989. J.P.
There is a hidden area in the map: Select course 3 (starting on the Bay Bridge), then turn around and go backwards for a ways (with the wall on your left, the ocean on your right, and traffic coming at you). After you've gone far enough, you will suddenly be in a nicely-detailed area whose streets are named after the developers.
