Racing Destruction Set, Commodore 64

Racing Destruction Set was an early Commodore 64 release for Electronic Arts, first released in 1985.

I’d consider it a timeless classic – especially among C64 race games.

The game uses split screen gameplay to great effect, and has pretty good artificial intelligence for the computer-controlled cars too. Which is the secret to the success of this game: you can get a pretty good race off the computer if you have no one else to race with. As well as there being a really good track designer that is dead simple to use.

If you’re playing Racing Destruction Set in VICE, use the Warp feature (Alt+W) to hurry past the interminably long load times.
