Enduro Racer

Many may already know that Peter Jørgensen is developing an Atari STe upgrade to one of our favourite racers? Well, I for one am very excited about this because Enduro Racer is brilliant!! The current beta features (FAR) faster gameplay compared to the original conversion but there are lots of other new updates planned:

  • We have extra on-screen colours and the horizon's landscape/clouds make use of the Blitter Chip.
  • The title music is replaced by 5-channel (DMA) YMT tunes which are based on the arcade scores.
  • The in-game music is also to be replaced with 3-channel YMT tunes which I'm excited about.
  • The DMA hardware will be used for all in-game sound effects, again taken from the arcade.

The betas I've seen give a fascinating insight into how the final product will be. Even at this early stage, it's better than the original ST conversion (which I love). So, yes, I am very excited about this project!! Watch this space.
