Indianapolis 500

Finally! The rip-roaring, totally fabbo PC formula one racer hits the Amiga! Hurrah! Well, the good news is that this particular version looks and sounds *exactly* like the PC version running at 26 MHz with an Ad Lib sound board! We're talking very good indeed! The 3D polygon graphics are amazingly fast, the sound is just completely topper and the playability's as red-hot as ever.

The bad news is that the simulator feel of the game is perhaps too strong - the car is quite hard to control effectively, and the other drivers are no pushover either. Add that to the fact there is only one circuit to drive around and you could grow a bit bored with Indy after a couple of weeks play.

Still, it can't be denied that Indy 500 is totally fab with all the fun of the PC version crammed in! All the thrills, spills and laffs of turning a hundred and eighty degrees and driving head-on into the opposition are still there to be savoured! See this game in motion and prepare to be amazed!

Amiga

A terrific driving game that simply must be seen to be believed!
