XTreme Racing is the new AGA texture mapped racing game from Silltunna
Software/Black Magic. The game is similar in style to Super Mario Kart on
the SNES, but of course, not so cute! Features are :
High Speed 256 colour Texture Mapped Graphics in 2x2/2x1/1x2/1x1 resolution
Enhanced for fast ram/accelerators(020/030/040)/CD32
1-8 players, 4 on a single machine, serial + modem link abilities
8 different cars, including a police car, Ferrari, VW Beetle
Intelligent Computer cars (you select the amount of cars to play against)
Lots of tracks, a large variety of graphics including a water world,
radioactive world, normal roads, space tracks where you can fall off the
edge (or hit someone else off the edge)...etc....
Battle mode where the players simply have to kill each other - All kills
will be recorded of course.
3 difficulty levels + Cup Races + Championship Modes
Saved Screen Preferences (different for different number of players)
Extra Camera - can be placed anywhere, including on other cars and on the
back of your car, and on the track etc.... Includes Zoom
modes, rotate modes, Tracking modes.
A variety of objects, such as a Lemming to run over, Sharks, Barrels....
A variety of weapon pick-ups, including missiles (some of which fly around
the track), homing sheep(!), mines, etc.....
Extra track features include Jumps, curbs and the ability to squash cars!
Cash for the championship mode - upgrade your engine, brakes, tyres etc...
Full Race Replays
In Game Music (yes, you can turn it off!)
HUGE amounts of playability & Loads of options
The Screen Shots are from the 1x1 version (which I can use on my 020-28).
Make of them what you will - laptime, position and lap number information
is also on the screen in the game but just isn't in the screen shots. We
also have a nice AGA sky which we couldn't save out.
The game should be released in time for XMAS'95 under the Black Magic label
- Black Magic were of course responsible for the hugely popular Gloom.
Sales information will be released soon.
