F1 Race (Game Boy)

F1 Race is a racing video game released in 1984 for the Family Computer in Japan. A version was released in 1990 for the Game Boy in Japan and in 1991 in Europe and North America, which included the Four Player Adapter for four-player gameplay.

F1 Race (Game Boy)

The game features racing in one of two Formula One cars around a variety of tracks near set in a landmark scenery. In the Family Computer version of the game, the cars come in three colours: red, light orange, and dark blue.

Gameplay in the Family Computer version is similar to that of Namco‘s Pole Position. Finishing in first, second, or third results in a podium finish; players must win on each track to advance to the next. Vehicles in the game have a generic two-speed manual transmission governing their speed (with a “LOW” setting and a “HI” setting). There are ten tracks in the race; the game repeats itself after the conclusion of the tenth circuit. Three difficult levels help beginners to adjust to the artificial intelligence on “skill level 1” while novices get some extra challenge on “skill level 2” and experts get the ultimate challenge on “skill level 3.” A strict time limit forces players to finish races without mistakes in order to progress to a more complicated race track. When the player’s car come into contact with other cars, it will be destroyed and respawn, usually losing several seconds.
