Top down battle racing game

Hi all,

I am trying to find a game I used to play on my A500 alot with friends in the early 90s. It was a racing game with top down perspective and you could pick what kind of vehicle you wanted to drive - tank, motorcycle, bus (i think), car etc and all vehicles had different characteristics. I don't think it was a public domain game since it was pretty well made as I remember it.

Ring any bells?

I was going to say Burnout but that's definitely not A500 compatible...

Nice find! It's in the ballpark, but doesn't seem to quite fit the OP's description though.

None of the games that came up in a HOL search do either. International Truck Racing is about the best I could come up with, but I don't think that's the game the OP (Mogilny) is thinking of somehow.

Thank you for the suggestions but unfortunately it is not any of these games I am thinking off. The track in the game was a bit similar to the style in Indy Heat (you could see the whole track) but more 2d and not so advanced.

I remember the tank could shoot, the motorcycle was really fast and agile, different sorts of cars with varying abilities and the bus (maybe a schoolbus?) was heavy and could take a lot of pounding but slow.

Edit: I am pretty sure it was a racing game with combat elements and not a pure combat game.

Mind that it's special (additional) version. In standard version You have normal vehicles (and cannot shoot). Just cannot find something about standard version.

Yes, I searched for "other" editions of the game, but - as you said - there doesn't seem to be much evidence that they exist or are available anywhere for download. Nevertheless, I think Gordon might've come up with the game that the OP is looking for!
