Mach 3 ZX Spectrum Whether the scenery changes if you play long enough I can't say 'coz I never lasted that long
Mach 3 ZX Spectrum We're off! The landscape does not change much in the early stages which is all I was able to play.
Mach 3 ZX Spectrum You need to go really low to get under the gates.... or you can wimp out

Mach 3, along with later Turbo Cup and Disc from the same developers utilized an early in-house music tracker technology, which let them compose soundtrack comprised of digital samples that took up little space, unlike a continuous recording. Most of the popular 'tracker' software didn't get much use until 1990 or later, and the earliest examples of in-game usage was also in 1987 in Amegas. What's even more impressive is that the DOS release used a PC-speaker to play the tracker music and samples. Ultra Force put out a Mach 3 audio player around 1991, which could play all digitized sound from the game.


The game bears some resemblance to the arcade laserdisc game M.A.C.H. 3, but the two are unrelated.
