So what's the problem? Well mainly I wasn't crazy about the joystick control. It's a shame this game doesn't support the Indy 500 controllers. But overall Sprint Master is still one of the better racing games for the 2600.
If you are a fan of the Atari 2600 and are a fan of racing games, this is probably a game that you should try to find. As it was one of the later releases, it isn't quite as common as some of the system's biggest hits, but it isn't overly rare either. Sprintmaster is an example of just how many options for gameplay the Atari 2600 was capable of delivering in a single game, and for that it is to be commended.
Another complaint I have concerns the overpasses. If you crash under one, much time is consumed as you have to figure out which direction your car is pointing, most likely resulting in a terrible score. Overall, this game provides a nice challenge and is surely one of the better sports games available for this system.
And what we got with Sprintmaster is just fine, as long as you’re willing to put in the work with the control scheme.
