Karting Grand Prix

Moby ID: 17061
DOS Specs

Description

With 8 circuits to race on against 2 opponents (one of which can also be human-controlled), this racing game is viewed from above and resembles Super Sprint and early budget-price imitations such as Grand Prix Simulator. Tracks can be raced in the wet, dry or on ice - don't forget to alter the tyre selection to suit. Contact with other cars weakens these tyres and can eventually cause punctures. Each race is of a varying number of laps depending on the track's length and complexity. Sound effects have been sampled, giving the game a realistic sound unusual at the time.
