A de-make of the old arcade favourite Super-Sprint for 1 or 2 players.
My entry for the 'Syntax Bomb' Retro Game competition 2017/18. 320x200 res and 16 colours.

- Try to beat your top score.
See READ ME for more information.
Changes in V1.1 :
4 new tracks.
Some reordering of the tracks and a few amendments to a couple of older tracks.
Ramps which can be jumped - if not properly aligned or going too slow the game will help you out a little.
Gates which can be driven though for a shortcut.
The AI now adjusts to your skill and properly races with different race lines.
The AI will start harder and adjust more if you select the harder starting tracks.
Slight modification to the shadow routines so some tracks now have 18 colours.
Changed in V1.2:
4 new tracks giving a total of 20.
Flipped versions (reflected on x axis) of normal / reverse track direction can now be selected in the Options menu. See NORMAL X and REVERSE X.
This gives a total of 80 tracks for more variety.
Minor reordering of some tracks, you now start on tracks 1,3,5, .. 15 rather than 1,2,3, .. 8. This allows you to race the new tracks without winning 9 races first.
Movement can be changed to Per Pixel in the Options menu. This is on by default and makes movement much smoother in higher resolutions.
Scores now flash if you've reached the leaderboard.
Double click on the file and unzip in your desired location. Takes around 26mb disk space.
*IMPORTANT* - the game will not run via the Itch app!!
