Sorry I'm not planning on developing a Mac OS version, but the Windows source code (including the Amiga 68000 source file) is available here: for anyone who fancies working on it.

Yes and no - I disassembled the entire 68000 code on the Amiga, then spent a while studying and commenting it. Then I wrote the new version in C/C++, using the Amiga algorithms for the car physics.

Yes the sound is original and the binary data was taken from the Amiga then converted to .wav files for playback under Windows. The only thing missing is the Amiga's low pass filter!

Thanks. Unfortunately I tried and failed to alter the car's physics code to handle 60fps. The Amiga routines that the new code is based upon were written for the Amiga's frame rate of 8-9fps and when I tried to change them (e.g. by reducing various constants and variables) the physics was just all wrong (e.g. the car would no longer jump sufficiently).

Again the Windows source code (including the Amiga 68000 source code) is available here: for anyone who fancies having another attempt.

Not sure if this is what you're after, but there is a 'speedrun' version for classic Amigas somewhere, which was created by someone else and allows for a much faster frame rate on more powerful Amigas. (The original Amiga version had a frame limiter in the code to ensure that six vertical blanks had occurred between frames, giving a frame rate of 50/6 = 8.33 fps. The 'speedrun' version either removes or significantly reduces the limiter).

Thanks for the positive comments and for featuring the game on your web site too.

Remember you can press the F10 key one or more times to slow the game down if needs be (and F9 to speed it up again)

Thanks. (Try pressing the F10 key )
