Join the OCAU Retro Driving Club in a different retro driving game each month and see who can lay down the fastest lap! The Game of the Month: Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off Road - 1989 Arcade with a bunch of ports to other systems. The Game Description Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off Road is an arcade video game released in 1989 by Leland Corporation. The game was designed and managed by John Morgan who was also lead programmer, and endorsed by professional off-road racer Ivan Stewart. Virgin Games produced several home versions in 1990. In 1991, a home console version for the Nintendo Entertainment System was later released by Leland's Tradewest subsidiary, followed by versions for most major home formats including the Master System, Genesis, Super NES, Amiga, and MS-DOS. A port for the Atari Jaguar was announced but never released. Some of the ports removed Ivan Stewart's name from the title due to licensing issues and are known simply as Super Off Road. The arcade machine was one of the more crazy and cool cabinets with up to 3 steering wheels ready for some multiplayer mayhem. We had this at our local Timezone arcade in Erina Fair back in the late 90's. The How To This is another game that can be launched in your browser thanks to sites such as Classic Reload. There are various ports available which can all be emulated using the appropriate emulator for the port. RetroArch is one of the easiest to use front ends that should make for a fun time to load up some different versions & have a play around. I'm hoping to get the MAME version working with my Atari VCS controller that has a built in spinner function so I can replicate the wheel FFFDLDLDLdldrlrdl feeling. The Race This game has a RPG element where you can upgrade your car and increase performance. To aid in simplicity lets just run with the opening race on track "sidewinder" Feel free to use up all your nitro's! I cant see any individual lap times, so just post the result of the race. I haven't played all versions. So it will be interesting to see the difference between platforms. Post up a screenshot and let us know the platform. The Entry Fee A $5 Donation to a legitimate charity of your choice. This is not mandatory. If you cant afford it don't worry. I just figure we may as well have some “greater good” come out of this!
