Go Speed Racer
Cyber Spin is a one-player, racing game that moves and grooves but ultimately stalls. You play Chuck "Chase" Davis, a 17-year-old who wants world recognition of his driving skills. Sliding behind the wheel of the Cyber Car (the racing vehicle of the future), you take your dream to 10 different locales against seven other drivers. The Cyber Car's top speed is 384 km/h, but that just ain't gonna cut it in this race. Luckily, you also get Turbo Speed. A power gauge in the upper right comer of the screen lets you know how much juice is left in the tank. But watch out, because your power decreases when you high speed cars. You may find yourself kicking in the carburetor a few times in frustration. The game is challenging, perhaps a little on the unfair side. Just when you get hit or spin out. To tank up on a power refill, just pull into the pit.
- Don't waste precious Turbo power on the first and second laps in the qualifying round. Only the third lap qualifies you for the other races.
- As soon as you see the turn markers, hang into the curve just a little bit.
Spins and Outs
Cyber Spin looks as smooth as a Lamborghini with sleek graphics, smooth scrolling, and absolutely no slowdown. The sounds are basic tire screeches and engine roars, while the music is standard pit disco. Control of the car is tricky, as can be expected with high speed cars. You may find yourself kicking in the carburetor a few times in frustration. The game is challenging, perhaps a little on the unfair side. Just when you think you have the upper hand on the steering wheel, the computer lets a driver blindside you and knock you down a few positions in the race.
After a spin out, release all buttons and use small bursts of power to extricate yourself from the grassy shoulders along the raceway. If you try to speed out, you'll careen off the walls.
Cyber Spin is for hard-core speed demons that have the skill of a pro and the patience of an angel. If you decide to take this for a spin, pack your Dramamine, 'cuz you may find yourself going in circles.
