They're Off!

Roll up, roll up... for a game packed with fun, excitement, action and that all-important addictive [very addictive] quality.

You Sir, yes you! Pull up a seat, rest your feet and get ready to race and race and race.

Nine exciting courses, race in the most famous events in the Racing Calendar.

Doncaster ... The Lincoln
Cheltenham ... The Gold Cup
Ascot ... Windsor Castle Stakes
Eglington ... Eglington Open
Longchamp ... Prix Saint Roman
Kempton ... The Easter Stakes
Rome ... Premio Parioll
Aintree ... The Grand National
Kentucky ... The Kentucky Derby

You can enter your own horse in all these exciting races.

There is all the fun of the fair with this enthralling head-to-head horse racing game.

Pit your skills against a friend and the computer, or two computer opponents.

Playing The Game

When the menu page appears, select one or two players. A pointer will indicate the current option; move the pointer by pressing SPACE, then press ENTER to confirm your choice. Then select your desired method of control.

Now you are asked to type in your horse's name.

Finally, you are offered 'Easy' or 'Hard' game options. The easy game will generously allow you to come second without losing a credit - well, for a while at least! In the 'Hard' game, you must win each race or it's thank you and goodnight. The 'Hard' game also calls for pin-point accuracy on your part, as the opposition is very good.

By rolling the ball into one of the holes in your table, your horse will advance accordingly. Only certain holes will allow your horse to jump fences.

Game Controls

Z - Left, X - Right, ENTER - Fire/Roll the ball

P/U - Pause On/Off

The game is also compatible with Kempston or Sinclair joysticks.
