Summary

Very basic, drive, steer, shoot, repeat

The Good

For no particular reason you're driving a fast car down a highway shooting any cars that get in your way.

It's a small game with a short load time.

The levels, at least the early ones I played on, do not take long to play through so I found this game to be a quick bit of fun.

The Bad

After running out of lives you have to rewind the tape to the right place to reload the level to continue playing. When playing on a spectrum, not an emulator, this is a real pain.

The Bottom Line

Though basic this is relatively quick to load, easy to play and fun. Not sure I'd ever play through all 50 levels though.
