Game Review

Turbo Outrun is the sequel to the original Outrun and was developed by SEGA and published by U.S. Gold in 1989 for the Amiga, Commodore 64, and many other platforms. Turbo Outrun is a racing game just like the first one and features similar play mechanics.

Turbo Outrun is meant to play fast and furious. Just like the first one you get to be behind the wheel of a Ferrari (a Ferrari F40 to be exact) and try to beat the clock. Each track must be completed within a certain time limit. Failure to do so will cost a continue, and you only get five. The biggest changes from the first game are that the race locations are set on a linear path, you now have an opponent, and you can now get a ‘turbo’ speed booster. Cops will also be hot on your tail and you must either outrun them or run them off the road.

It's not one of the best coin-up conversion, but it's fun and colourful and the music is good. While not overly complicated it’s a good game for inexperienced racers, but it’s also a nice change of pace for hardcore ones.
