A quick look at Speed Demons is bound to send some older games players into retrospective spasms of joy.
I The gaming equivalent of a straight-to-video title, Speed Demons is a previously unreleased slant on the arcade classic SuperSprint. In glorious SVGA, it features eight tracks and three varieties of car. Split-screen mode can accommodate up to four players and up to six players can race it out over a network. Race set-up can be fully customised and players can kit out their cars with better tyres and upgrade engines in between races.
Even though the tracks look nice, they're a bit short and the cars bounce around them just a little too much. Also, the poncey rock soundtrack fails to make up for the absence of any engine noises, and as a full price game, Speed Demons would've been slated. On budget though, it fares much better, and overall it's a noble attempt to recapture the SuperSprint spirit, which is no bad thing.
