Abandonware DOS title

Stunt Car Racer

Stunt Car Racer is an abandoned first-person 3D perspective racing game designed by Geoffrey J. Crammond, developed and released by Microstyle in 1989 for DOS and many other platforms. The peculiar tracks are what makes Stunt Car Racer stand out: you race on a suspended track with the risk of driving off the edges.

Stunt Car Racer reviews

Abandonware DOS - "I'm not a big fan of racing games, this one though catched my attention. I owned the original big box game for C64 and to this day I can't remember why I bought it. Anyway, I found Stunt Car Racer very engaging (and very difficult). The suspended tracks and the feeling of driving a dragster (or something similar) was palpable. Today Stunt Car Racer is almost unplayable. I would certainly consider support a remake, if someone out there would be interested in making one."

Zero Magazine issue 4 (1990) - "I'm not going to bore you with the details because we've done this one to death. But I couldn't leave it out because it's so good... Now this just shows what can be done with filled vectors and a racing game. A brilliant idea, fantastically executed by the geezer who did The Sentinel: Geoff Crammond. I can't really fault Stunt Car Racer. In fact, as far as I'm concerned, it's set the standard by which future driving 'simulations' will be judged."
