ChinnyVision - Turbo Esprit

Why nobody further developed the idea of this open world game on the 8 or even 16 bits is beyond me. A great game thats significance has only come to the fore post GTA:

I never played this one back in the day but it looks great. I'm going to add it to my "to play" list.  :)

It's GTA. On a CPC! And you also drive on the correct side of the road which is always a bonus!

Another one I've never had a chance to play yet either.

Will give this video a proper play tomorrow before I head out. =)
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

This game is great, but you are playing the good guy, it's not GTA ;)


Read the notice, the missions are very simple, the difficulty increase in the game because of the world itself (roads become more and more narrow)
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

I will survive

Nice review as always, although I had to cringe when I heard the word 'iconic' being used. It is such an overused word that it's lost its meaning.

It's not a phrase I throw around lightly but I do believe this is one game whose impact can still be felt today and it is elevated above most of its contemporaries.

I remember playing and enjoying this game a lot back in the day and reasonably good memories of it.  Keep meaning to revisit it.

Yep, same for me.
I have fond memories of this game, it really appealed to me.
I need to get back onto it.
