Epyx‘s Super Cycle first came out for the Commodore 64 in 1986. It was critically well-received and sold reasonably well. I remember buying the cassette version and very much enjoying it.
It might be considered primitive by today’s standards, but back in 1984 when Pitstop II was first released, it really raised the bar for arcade-style racing games. That is: racing games that are fun to play, rather than being as realistic as possible.
The first of the ground-breaking/award-winning Epyx multi-event sport games, Summer Games was first released way back in 1984.
