- Jaguar XJ220 (1993 on SEGA CD)
Description official description
In the early nineties, the Jaguar XJ220 was the fastest serial-produced car ever. Core Design acquired the right to build a game around it, in a move to counter Gremlin's immensely successful Lotus series.
Just like Lotus, Jaguar XJ220 is viewed from behind the racer. There are 36 tracks all over the world, with varying road conditions and animated weather conditions such as rain and fog in England, snow in Switzerland, and tumbleweed crossing the street in Egypt. You race your Jaguar in a constructor grand prix, with opponents running for Porsche, Ferrari and other famous makers. Between races, you must mend the damage your car has sustained, which eats up your prize money. Background music is selected through a dashboard CD player, which also features some rather uninspiring radio stations.
The game can also be played in a two-player split-screen mode and features a track editor for when you tire of the built-in courses.

Cancelled Atari ST version
A version for the Atari ST was in development, but was never finished. Andrew Buchanan started to port the Amiga code to the ST in June 1992, but was pulled from the project in August to work on Darkmere: The Nightmare's Begun. Unfinished development versions were released on the Guardians Of The PaST website in 2009.
