Road Racer is a racing/driving game and a variant of the classic Pole Position for Arcade. Qualification is not required for a player to be allowed to race in this game, he simply has to finish each lap with a remaining life. The conduction itself is also not considered an obstacle because the car will never get off road. The only thing the player has to worry about is to avoid crashing against other opponents and specially while trying to overrun them or vice-versa. The overruns become increasingly more difficult for each successfully completed lap as much as the speed will increase exponentially. For each lap a flag is earned.


Road Racer ZX Spectrum Almost there...
Road Racer ZX Spectrum 2nd lap done. The second trick is to keep the opponent car at a constant distance, there can't be two opponents on the screen at the same time (Muahaha!).
Road Racer ZX Spectrum High Score.
Road Racer ZX Spectrum Space-time bended here, suddenly you are almost finishing the race.
