Most home conversions of this arcade driving game are pretty awful, the Atari Lynx version is very much an exception, having all the speed and features of the original.
The arcade machine used polygons to create the landscape, the Lynx version uses it's impressive sprite scaling to create the same effect.
The idea is to drive round the track, which is split into halves, one a speed track, the other a stunt track, including the well known loop the loop section.
The player scores points for the more elaborate stunts, or for driving at speed with no collisions. Care must be taken not to collide with obstacles or other cars.
