Slipstream 5000 reviews

Computer and Video Games (1995): "Slipstream 5000 zips past you like a gazelle with afterburners... as long as you've got a ninja PC so powerful that NASA wants to buy it off you. Otherwise Gremlin's latest racer gets all clunky clunky, and the texture mapping crawls past your canopy slower than a snail with a brieze block on its back. Technicalities aside however this plays like an absolute dream! There is plenty of multiplayer fun to be had with your mates too. Original it may not be, but fun it definitely is."

PC Gamer (1995): "After disappointments like CyberRace, Delta V, and Zephyr, experienced gamers are just about conditioned to be skeptical of science-fiction racing games. But anyone who gives Slipstream 5000 the benefit of the doubt will find it to be a challenging, entertaining title."

    Slipstream 5000 was an influential game for me and one of my earliest gaming memories. Nearly 30 years later I'm making my own game called Dagger Run: Aerocombatic Racing, that is heavily influenced by it but with the addition of first person exploration
