PIXEL RACE

Full Throttle, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, 1984
'Incredibly fast high-resolution 3D action! Race agains 40 other riders, on 10 of the world's top cicuits!  To load: press J -key and holding down the red SYMBOL+SHIFT. Press the P-key twice. When screen shows LOAD press ENTER'.....
I found this vintage arcade Race-'n'-Chase game at my local charity shop. The game, on a cassette tape, could be played on the ZX Spectrum (here). In 1990 Full Throttle 2 was released, showing 'twice as much colors'...wow!
3-D? These days you had to have a lot more fantasy, amazing how games have evolved as you realize these games were played in the nineties!
