Gaming Memories - December 1989

Looking back at what I was reading and playing exactly 30 years ago this month, December 1989 was a good year for racing games on the Commodore 64. My Amiga owning friends might have had the eagerly awaited home version of Hard Drivin', but I had the Commodore 64 versions of Turbo Outrun and Stunt Car Racer, both of which scored higher than their Amiga counterparts between both Zzap and Commodore User reviews.

It was however around this time when I decided to ditch Commodore User in favour of the more C64 friendly Zzap 64/Amiga as my primary source of C64 news and goodness since Commodore User was aiming more for the Amiga market. Shame on them, as the C64 still had plenty of life left in it to last a few more years.

Game Covers - Night Racer (Commodore 64)

A fast and furious rally through the forests of central Europe.  Foot to the floor, skidding round the bends, you must reach the checkpoint in time.  Through the gears power past the stragglers, the timer is flashing, just seconds left.  The checkpoint is only a bend away, will you make it or will it be curtains!
