Buggy Boy – Speed Buggy

One buggy five tracks, game on. It was released first in the arcades circa 1985, with 3 screens that wrapped around the player for almost 180 degrees!

The conversions that graced house hold screens a few years later raced in to arrive with critical acclaim, while they might not have boasted the 3 screens, they did capture they feel of game.

There were many industry innovations in this game. For a start there were tunnels & bridges, then you could jump over logs, drive up embankments & even drive on two wheels.

In the days of one player racing, this game brought a lot to the table.

  1. One of the first 16-bit games I played… it definitely impressed, even though by the standards of later examples it was pretty primitive. Still good for a quick blast every now and then. Some lunatic even managed to convert the Atari ST floppy version to a cartridge for instant loading, so you can get your fix within seconds rather than a couple of minutes…
