Rally Simulator

The Zep label's second game this month (does Jimmy Page get royalties?), and a considerable improvement on its little chum above, although I'm not convinced that that justifies hiking the price up by a quid. Still, there always seems to be room for another Simulator game, in the Code Masters tradition, and this one cheerfully chooses to rip off Grand Prix Simulator. Unlike that hugely successful game, though, Rally Sim presents more than just a series of boring little circuits - here. Level One alone is vast and labyrinthine, and you do well to get round it even once. A joystick is essential - I generally prefer the keyboard but here it's impossible to control. The graphics are excellent, and while the gameplay's absolutely straightforward, it's curiously addictive. No complaints either about speed, and the scrolling is unobstrusive. Boffo stuff, and congrats to programmer Hugh Mo (and his sister Fly).
