Hard Drivin' (ZX Spectrum)

Hard Drivin' Screenshots

ZX Spectrum version

The game loads very quickly. This is the first screen that the player sees
Then comes the game's main menu
This is an indication that the player is expected to drive correctly, well reasonably so
This is saying what a revolutionary simulation the game is, I think. Shame that after all the work of developing the game he writing is so hard to read.
The start of the game. The car goes no-where unless the key in the ignition is turned. Cue much reaching for the manual and frustrated hitting of keys
When the ignition has been started the game wants to know if the player prefers a manual or an automatic gear shift.
Then we're back to turning the key again. 2:00 minutes to complete the circuit
This is an unforgiving game. Three seconds in and the car's been in a crash
The instant replay almost gloatingly shows a shunt from behind
Initially steering with the joystick proved hard. When the car goes off road a ten second countdown starts
The instant replay shows the car explode when the ten seconds was up, even though the car had made it back onto the road. This is a tough game.
Some times the car was too responsive, others just not responsive enough, or could it be that I'm rubbish at driving games?
The game seems to class this as being off road too
