Be astounded in this souped up, racing mega-experience!
It's got all you'll ever need and all you've ever desired in a
Racer, including Cheesecake, fish-fingers and the meanest
game of Hangman this side of Winchester 7!
To mark the occasion of his 700th birthday, the Great Astral Trout of Winchester 7 in the galaxy of Louth
has decreed that a motor race assault course be constructed, and that races be held upon it each year
with moderately generous prizes for those brave enough to take up the challenge. Not wishing to annoy
their spiritual mentor because he's bigger than anybody else, the Trouts, usually more keen on crosswords
than motor racing, set about building an exciting but also rather dangerous track. The challenge is then
issued to alien races in the vicinity of Winchester 7. The entrant who completes the course in the fastest
time will receive enough fish fingers and cheesecake to live on for a year, not to mention the undying
respect of the Great Astral Trout who will be watching the race on a telly in his shed. He has even promised
to name his pet radish after the winner.
Unfortunately, during the construction phase, our fishy hosts seem to have carelessly left letters from their
crosswords lying around. Anyone who picks them up and rearranges them to form useful words will be
rewarded with a full tank of petrol. Sounds like a fair deal to me, anyway.
Navigate the assault course, avoiding the many hazards. A timer at the top of the screen shows the time
remaining - fail to complete a section within the time limit and you will lose a life. Collect the letters
and you can use them to guess the words the Trouts are trying to find in their crossword puzzle - incorrect
guesses cost a little petrol, but complete the word and you will be rewarded with a full tank.

version without the hangman sub-game.
