As far as commands are concerned, you need to:
* press the (T) key to start the engine
* push the joystick up to accelerate
* push the joystick up and press the button to go up one gear
* push the joystick down to brake
* push the joystick down and press the button to go down one gear
* push the joystick left to turn to the left
* push the joystick right to turn to the right
The video shows yours truly trying to negotiate the Silverstone circuit turns. Pretty pathetic but it gives you an idea of how the driving goes in Revs. No need to comment on how bad my driving is since I already know. This is of course the practice mode. There is of course a competition mode with other drivers but I haven’t gone that far in the game yet.
Revs for the C64 has two tracks: Silverstone and Brands Hatch. Revs+ has four more tracks and, best of all for us clumsy drivers, a Computer Assisted Steering (CAS) system that helps you negotiate turns. The game was designed by Geoff Crammond and published by Firebird in 1986 on the Commodore 64 (was originally released on the BBC Acorn).
