Story

V8 return to base - immediately!

Well, I really sucked at playing this game, because the control was almost impossible to handle.
But I love the outstanding soundtrack Rob Hubbard composed back in 1985!

On this way many thanks to all people at BIT2019 who voted for my Remix.
I'm very pleased about this. 😊

Dusty is back with a vengeance and everything sounds over-the-top in this Remix: melody, personality, fat, juicy grooves and a sense of drama.
Wicked.
Kickass! I like how the high-pitched mutes sound like tire squeaks.:-)
Nailed it!
Not my cup of tea.
Exciting piece! Great mixture of Metal and SID sounds.
Truly terrible game married to a stonking tune. Not a fan of metal, but this genre fits this tune very well. Great work.

Decent job! I always liked the original, but this remix is a powerful and well arranged homage to its original. Both thumbs way up!

Very enjoyable and plenty of metal as you drive along with the most broken C64 game controls ever. It's very well made and just a little of the feel is lost for me, but kicks hard anyway. Definitely a sign of greater things to come later (see the 2020 Tusker rework!)
