The First Time we actually played this was on the Spectrum, so it never looked as good as this. Replace half of the colours with yellow and half with black and you've got the Speccy experience down. Still, the game was just as good on my faithful ZX +3 with a wobbly power cable as it ever was in DOS. Maybe.

Anyway, you and three AIs (or two Al and one other human) would battle across eight solo-screen race tracks, with the titular Ironman being the toughest driver to beat. Other drivers could include 'Madman' Sam Powell, 'Hurricane' Earl Stratton and 'Jammin" John Morgan. Money could be collected by doing well and then spent in the shop, where you could buy upgrades to your vehicle, like better acceleration, bigger nitro allowance and so on.

The game was addictive and always great fun to play. All I wonder now is what the hell happened to the Ironman? Answers on a postcard please.

Game Reviews

Super Off Road, adapted from the mega-hit arcade game of the same name, is a driving game of a different kind. Employing a "race-around-the-track" style and perspective of Super Sprint with three-dimensional hills, ramps and hazards, Super Off-Road degenerates into a fuel-injected free-for-all with up to four players competing simultaneously. Power-ups increase car efficiency and add to the game play.

People say:

7.0

By yourself, Super Off Road is a great combination of wild driving stunts and nice graphics. But in the multi-player modes, the game explodes as one of the best drivers ever! The arcade feel remains intact, but the game isn't as challenging.

6.0

A good translation of the arcade that takes a bit of time to master the controls. It is one of the first racing games to successfully implement a four-player option and it's angled track perspective allows much more of a three-dimensional feel.

7.0

This is an excellent game that looks kind of rough around the edges, but plays like dynamite! Just like the arcade version, Super Off Road is an out-of-control race around the track that becomes a blast when four people play. Great conversion!

7.0

This is a very fun game. It's look may leave something to be desired, but the feel of the cars, mixed with the frantic action of four different vehicals bouncing around the screen, make Super Off-Road one of the best new games of the year!
