Terminator: Future Shock, PC
Terminator: Future Shock is a first-person shooter based on James Cameron‘s Terminator films. It was developed by Bethesda and also published by them in North America in 1995. Virgin Interactive published the game in Europe.
Based on a Steve Jackson board game called Car Wars, Autoduel is an early attempt by Origin Systems to create a Mad Max-type post apocalyptic, car-based RPG that borrows elements from Origin‘s own Ultima series, as well as from other games such as FTL‘s SunDog. It was first released in 1985.
Destruction Derby, PC
Destruction Derby is a ‘smash ’em up’ car racing game developed by Reflections and published by Psygnosis in 1995. In it you can drive three different cars and choose from four different play modes (Destruction Derby, Wreckin’ Racing, Stock Car Racing, and Time Trial).
Turbo is a conversion of a 1981 Sega arcade game, first released on the ColecoVision in 1982. The game uses a third-person viewpoint, from behind the car, and is compatible with the ColecoVision analogue steering wheel (aka “ColecoVision Expansion Module #2“).
WipEout 2097, PlayStation
The 1996 sequel to the original WipEout, WipEout 2097 was released as WipEout XL in North America and Japan, but I’m sticking with the name that the developers intended – not what the US marketing dingbats decided they would call it… WipEout 2097 was not initially intended to be a sequel to WipEout, but an add-on pack, but this was later changed as the game approached its release date.
Developed and published by Psygnosis in 1995, WipEout is a futuristic racing game, set in the year 2052, where you compete in an Anti-Gravity (AG) Racing League piloting dart-like vehicles that float above the ground and zip around tortuously-designed race tracks against similar opposition.
Atari Karts, Atari Jaguar
Atari Karts is a blatantly obvious attempt to copy the classic Super Nintendo game, Super Mario Kart, on the Atari Jaguar, and frankly it falls way short of Nintendo‘s brilliant racing game.
It Came From The Desert II, Amiga
It Came From The Desert II is an add-on/expansion pack for the classic ‘giant ant’ Cinemaware game, It Came From The Desert, and was first released in 1990. The story in this is set five years after the events of the first game. You don’t need the first game to play It Came From The Desert II, although you can load a save from part one, to continue from where you left off.
Sega‘s 1981 arcade racer, Turbo, was designed and programmed by Steve Hanawa and was manufactured in three formats: a standard, full-sized upright cabinet, a mini cabinet, and a deluxe, seated cockpit cabinet. All three versions had a steering wheel, a gear lever with high and low gears, and an accelerator pedal.
