Atari Classic Super Sprint soon available for Amiga 1200

Amiga Developer Graeme Cowie is working on a new port of Super Sprint, a racing video game released by Atari Games in 1986. Up to three players drive Formula One-like cars on a circuit that is viewed from above. There are 8 circuits in total, but the game only ends if gamers can get to race 85 where the bonus Super Speedway circuit is played. As the player goes to higher levels, more and more obstacles appear on the track, like oil puddles and tiny moving tornadoes. If the car touches them, the player loses control over the car for a short time while it is sliding and spinning. Driving into a wall with high speed or falling from one of the bridges destroys the car, but a helicopter will appear to replace it. The new release of Super Sprint is based on the arcade coin-up. The game was also ported by Meynaf in 1992 and required AmigaOS 3.9.
