You may remember this old PC game from a long time ago when, like me, you had the time to waste playing hours of flight sims, driving games and first person shooters.
Anyway, I had one of those flashback funky five minutes today.
I reckon this would make an excellent Axles and Alloys scenario and/or campaign, although to be honest the exact details of the game are a bit sketchy. I was fairly useless at it as I didn't have a wheel and had to fall back on a mouse and keyboard but, nonetheless, it was a lot of fun and had an excellent storyline.
In gaming terms the possibilties for 1970's and 1980's diecast conversions are very cool. There are also some good storyline ideas to be developed into potential scenarios. There's also the retro funkiness of the whole thing, which would add some flavour to the proceedings.
