Street Racer

Originally a cart game released for the SNES, there were conversions made but the original was the only good one mainly due to it being 4 player, with use of the multi tap.

While at first glance it appeared not much more than a Mario Kart rip off. Looking a little past that revealed a different kind of racer, no shooting the leader with a turtle shell, causing him to loose the race. While you could attack, you had to be right next to your opponent.

Though racing against the computer quickly proved too easy, this is a game to be played with mates. In 4 player where the 4 screens would be curiously stacked on top of each other as opposed to the quartered screen we’re now used to (probably to do with the mode 7 technique race track).
