Flying an ultra-fast 200 per hour can be mind-blowing, but terrifying if you've been strewn with the circuit of dangerous ramps, drifting mines, and a dangerous fighter that has taken you with you. Your mission: reach the goal, beat the speed and points record, but, friend, you will have to get wet ... Good luck.
Thanks to scrutinizing the Msx romset well to have fun and find raw material for my blog, I am realizing the number of games that Mind Games Spain distributed. That if, with honorable exceptions, all their programs have something in common: either that they are very crappy, or that the cover is horrible ... or both at the same time.
And here we find a supposed fast-paced race where we will have to face a fighter, mines and ramps ... Our glider can only move from right to left and if we press the space bar we will accelerate.
The problem comes when we start the game and sometimes we explode without having touched an obstacle ... programming failure? Well, no. If you look closely at the image you will see that just to the right of the boat there is a green cross ... because that cross is throughout the game falling diagonally from the top of the screen. Between the fact that with the colorful scenery it is not distinguished and that we can only move sideways, avoiding it sometimes depends more on luck than on our ability at the controls.
Then we find that some ramps plunge us directly against a wall, that we have to take them very well if we do not want to explode and that every time they kill us, despite progressing a lot, it sends us again at the beginning ...
Another small disaster that I only recommend to the very curious or to those who want to hear the digitized voice that is right when we load the game.
Update: thanks to the comment of a follower on twitter, it is discovered that this game is a copy of an existing one, the Fly Boat by Frederic Puteaux made in 1986.
