Really good one!
Great and simple ink effect from grass / water / night (tunnel).What a pitty the lack of curves, some kind of straight line, highway to hell :)

Yeah, first thing I thought was "I never saw such a straight alpine road".


As a game quite boring but for a type-in really good as it shows some nice tricks for Basic programming and probably not very much boring DATA stuff as the machine code part seems to be limited to the sprite drawing routine only. I love how he's doing a lot about the atmosphere with pure color changes. The road is not moving at all, just pure color changes.

Thanks for the replies, my only experience in BASIC was (with help!) creating a few slideshows 30 years ago so I find this interesting :)

Maybe you can add something from 8BP and improve it a little...

Nope, I leave programming to people that know what they are doing :)


However 8BP might provide something to record, thanks for the info.
