Vroom is a Formula 1 car racing game that can be played either in arcade or simulation mode. The main options screen allows you to select manual or automatic transmission, number of laps, and training, single race, or full season. The multiplayer option allows two players to race against each other on separate computers.

Each track, with different layouts and background graphics, includes many tight curves, steep grades and inclines, as well as tunnels and a pit stop.

The player-controlled car has working side-view mirrors, which allow you to view the actual action behind you, as well as a working speedometer and gear display.

The game features a colorful mix of 3D and 2D graphics, realistic sound effects, and blazing fast, smooth animations.

In 1993 Lankhor developed a game for Domark called F1, which was basically a rewrite of this game, the main new features being a split-screen 2-player mode, A1200 compatability, and a new Turbo mode which sped the game up by 50% (at the cost of losing some scenery). In 1995 Peakstar (who converted Road Rash to the Amiga) programmed a game called F1 World Championship Edition for Domark, which was essentially a rewrite of F1; ergo, it was a rewrite of Vroom.

Porting information

This version of the game was first created on the Atari ST and then ported to the Amiga, unlike other contemporary titles. Development began when the Amiga was not yet released. The first version of the game, as Wroom!, was released in 1986 on the Sinclair QL.
