    Speed! is a port of an old Amiga game. It's a first-person racer - the goal is to just run through a maze as fast as possible. The original really never made it past a demo, so there is only one level. It is, however, a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. Lots of practice is required for good times!

    My personal record is 11:56.

    No emulator I know of runs the game properly. No$gba almost does it, but doesn't support fog so the game doesn't look very good. Run it on a real machine for the full experience!

    Like I said, no emulator I know of displays it properly, so getting a screenshot is hard. If anyone can manage to get one that actually looks right, I'd be happy to put it up, though.

    Seems fine on my no$gba. If you want, I can make some screens on it and post them here.

    It is not. The hardware fog used for the shading is not working on no$gba. It works and is playable, but it does not look as good as on the real hardware.

    I don't manage to kill the second boss (the one with the axe). I've tried with my green sword but he doesn't lose even 1 HP [​IMG]


    ...


    More seriously, it's very funny. I hope there will be other tracks [​IMG]
    (I'll not post my time before I do less than fifty seconds)
