Moonshine Racers
Moonshine Racers is a fun 3D bitmap racing game with nice graphics,
converted from the original Amiga release. Probably the best thing about
the game is the wacky plot, which is set in the wild, wild west of the
U.S. As the manual puts it, "Sheriff Sam and his deputies are real sore
now and they're aiming to make life as difficult for Ike and Billy Joe as
possible. Here is your change to run moonshine for ol man Tucker. The Pay
ain't bad and the life is hectic but fun - provided you keep your sense
of humour! The objective in Moonshine Racers is to deliver ol' man
Tucker's moonshine to various customers throughout the state." Gameplay
will be similar to Street Rod fans. You begin your moonshining equipped
with Billy Joe's basic and beaten up jalopy wagon. But as you gain more
money delivering moonshine, you can spend it on new engine parts and
tires at Sam's garage. But constantly being chased by Fat Sam and his men
soon wears out the engine, and so as you progress, you will need to buy
faster and better equipped automobiles. In addition to standard upgrades
you can buy (e.g. new engines), you can also buy a map, which will give
better information about the route you should take, and even tobacco (the
effect of which on the drivers is fun to watch :)). Unfortunately,
though, the graphics palette is a bit too muted, so the game looks quite
boring against drab desert backgrounds. It's also too easy to speed away
from Fat Sam's minions, and each state doesn't look that different from
one another. If you're looking for a racer with unique premise, give
Moonshine Racers a try. It won't hold your interest for very long,
though. Note: An interesting anecdote about the game: rumor has it that
it's based on the Oscar-winning movie Driving Miss Daisy. Negotiations
were close to completion until the movie company saw an early demo from
the unnamed software house, consisting mostly of a second-rate Chase H.Q.
clone, and promptly pulled out of the deal. Malicious gossip has it that
the game later re-appeared as Moonshine Racers. Ouch ;)
