C64 "Wheels" game any good?

Thinking of learning C64 emulation just for this game. Anyone played this "Wheels" racing game from 1991, any good? I'm fascinated by this whole dashboard in-car view with animated feet, lol.

Strange perspective with visible driver's legs and no obstacles.

Smearing your C64's monitor with vaseline may help your enjoyment.
or
Failing that, smear it over yourself and try some two player action.

It's crap, like all Loadstar/Softdisk magazine releases.

Probably easier for you to download a C64 emulator + the game and play it yourself

Yeah that's what I thought. I don't see the harm in trying it if you think it might be interesting, what have you got to lose?

Well, I haven't studied C64 emulation yet. I just figured if anybody here play 64's games thru their emulator and why not might me request them to video capture the gameplay so I can see it and decide if I want it enough to study C64 emulation. It was just a favor, no biggie. =/

3. Drag & Drop the WHEELS.D64 image into WinVice

Vice is so easy, no configs, just play and go. Only thing you sometimes need to enable is the true drive emulation.

And download some new c64 demos also
