Title: Manhattan Chasers
Post by Dack on 04.01.09 at 23:35:55
It [Top Banana] still cannot compare with the legendary game "Manhatten Chasers".

This was a "tribute" to Outrun that loaded Degas pictures off the floppy during the game (to simulate going through a tunnel).

Imagine, if you will, a road racing game that would stop every 30 or 40 seconds to load and display 5 pictures. Each file taking 2/3 seconds to load.

So:
Repeat
30 seconds of flickery 3d race,
12 seconds of disc load and flicker (5 frames of animation in total)
until reset.

Rumour had it that the game was bought up by US Gold as they were bringing out the official Outrun (written by Probe though).
