TriviaAccording to Andy Edwardson comments in the Apogee FAQ, Wacky Wheels was first shown to Copysoft before reaching a publishing deal with Apogee, however included on the diskette he had given CopySoft was C++ Source Code.
Later on, CopySoft released Skunny Kart, which Andy believes must have used the engine code from Wacky Wheels, based on his knowledge of Copysoft's programming resources.
