The Great Art Race is a revised remake of the classic Vermeer (for C64, Amiga, Atari ST, PC-Dos) from 1987/1988.

This management sim is located in the 1920s. The goal is to obtain the collection of paintings that were stolen from your uncle's property. The paintings are offered at auctions and therefore the player needs money which can be made by producing and trading goods, by trading stocks, or by betting on horse races.

A multiplayer hotseat mode for up to 5 players is also included.
