Tron-Like Game

This is a game I used to play a lot. A tron-like game for two players playing on the same screen (gray background IIRC). The screen was fixed (no scrolling) and there a passage that led from the right side to the left side and probably (not 100% sure about this) another from the bottom side to the top side. I used to play it for hours with my mates when I was 15 or so, then I sold my first amiga with _all_ the games. How could I have been so stupid?!

Super Tron 97?

Maybe Super Tron 97!

I mean, probably the first 1993 version...

@andreas : Not rasterbike, there was no scrolling.
@fissuras : Looks like it (fixed screen, left-to-right passage), but it was before 1990, maybe in 1989. An IIRC the "lines" left behind the cycles were 3D-like.

Not Light-Racer - it really looked like super tron 97 but I'm pretty sure it was before 1990...

I'm pretty sure it wasn't disc, it was just a lightcycle game with no other game part. One more detail, I think both vehicules (could have been cars?) left a "thick" line behind them, one was blue and the other red. Shit I've spent so many hours on this game and I can't remember more than this!?
Do you think I could have more luck if I posted on comp.sys.amlga.games?

None of these. Maybe I mistook the "solid 3D wall" from tech, my memory is a bit fuzzy. However what I'm pretty sure about is the date (~1989) and that there was no scrolling. Could have been freeware/shareware, I don't remember any crew/publisher name.

A little late perhaps.. but it's called Wipe Out

Yeah it's called Wipe Out, great game back in the day. Sadly hard to find due to the name being taken for the new series of Wipeout games..


See there for screenshots!
