Super Skidmarks is a racing game created by Acid Software for the Amiga, released in 1995. Codemasters also released a Genesis / Mega Drive version.
The game is the sequel to Skidmarks (in fact, it's also called Skidmarks 2), and like the predecessor, was developed in Blitz Basic by Chris Blackbourn. The gameplay and graphics are similar: birds-eye view, small isometric cars (resembling matchstick boxes), and plenty of drift.
Skidmarks 2's new features include hi-res graphics (handy because you see a more significant portion of the track), 3-players split-screen (yes, 3, not just 2), or eight players simultaneous play with null-modem cables connected Amigas. You can also choose to race with a wheeled cow (yes, cow) or with a caravan attached to your car (sounds stupid, but extremely fun). But Skidmarks 2 best feature is its playability, which is simply perfect. Super Skidmarks is the typical game that is brilliant to play and extremely fun to watch. Just be sure to call your friends.
