Categoría(s): Carreras

Con nueve meses de trabajo de numerosas personas, OUT RUN debe ser de las más grandes, si no la más grande, de las conversiones de un juego recreativo a ordenador doméstico de todos los tiempos. El juego reproduce de la manera más realista todos los detalles de la máquina de los bares.

Si fuera más realista, te haría falta un carnet de conducir.

Puedes elegir el recorrido que quieras en tu carrera contra el tiempo para llegar hasta una de las cinco posibles metas. Arranca el motor, coge firmemente el volante, y ¡en marcha! Evita las colisiones y ¡no te salgas de la carretera!

Para usar las marchas. Estas te ayudarán a acelerar, frenar y maniobrar en las curvas. Usa una marcha baja para empezar, hasta que hayas cogido velocidad, y luego cambia y acelera a tope. En las curvas mantén la marcha baja, y en las rectas vuelve a subir.

Puntuación: Según vas avanzando observarás que la puntuación sube automáticamente.

Tiempo: Cada parte del recorrido debe ser completada en un tiempo máximo. El tiempo empieza a descontarse en cuanto arranques.

Velocidad: La velocidad se indica en kilómetros por hora.
