Decidedly average. The most frustrating thing is that every time you crash it takes a good few seconds, an annoying jingle, and a couple of other unnecessary frills before you go right back to the beginning again. Read Review
Caught on the surface of a nuclear devastated planet, you have seconds to
return underground before your radiation shield decays.
In any other car you would stand no chance - in The Last V8, survival is possible... maybe!
The year is 2008 - it is seven years since the Global War - the nuclear
winter is beginning to pass.
The war-destroyed civilisation as it used to be - the earth's surface is
a radioactive battleground with few survivors. As a scientist
working on a secret government military project, in a deep nuclear
bunker you were able to survive.
During your years underground, you have been working on your own
special project - "The Last V8", based upon an old car which you
owned in the Eighties. It is now unique - full radiation shielding,
computerised with telemodem link to the new sci-base, turbo charged,
eight cylinder, 940bhp engine, giving a max 410 kph.
You have now received permission to take the Last V8 up to the
surface to try to make contact with the remnants of mankind - however,
on your maiden run, the sci-base warns you of an imminent threat from
one of the delayed attack nuclear warheads which detonate periodically,
you have only seconds to return to the intercity and then to sci-base
before your radiation shield decays.
In any other car you would stand no chances - in The Last V8, survival is possible - maybe...
Use your joystick in port 2 to control the V8 scroll commands.
