Description

In the sequel to Test Drive, you can play against the time or the computer. Choose between a Ferrari F-40 and a Porsche 959, and take on your opponent, who is in the other car. There is also traffic to avoid.

Each stage has a different setting, including forests and mountains, with a wide range of hazards to dodge. The game is designed to allow for scenario disks. To finish a stage, you must stop at the gas station by yourself, which allows you to refuel.

Trivia

Commodore 64 version

The Commodore 64 version has a better frame rate when played on a Commodore 128, because it switches the processor to 2 MHz mode while the TV's or monitor's electron beam is off-screen. (The VIC chip can't handle a 2 MHz clock frequency, so it would show garbage on the screen.)
