Test Drive II: The Duel

Several months ago while digging through the book section of a local thrift store I found several incorrectly placed software boxes. How several unopened computer games from the 1980s ended up in the book section of a local thrift store 30 years later… it’ll hurt your head if you think about it too long.

While Test Drive II: The Duel was released for many different systems (including the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Apple IIgs, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS, Genesis, Macintosh, MSX, SNES, and ZX Spectrum) the Amiga version has always been my favorite (although the Genesis and SNES versions give it a run for its money). Check out that stereo sound during the intro of this video!

I'm into old video games, old arcade games, old computer games, writing, photography, computer/network security, and of course, the 1980s!

    I can’t begin to count how many hours I spent on the C=64 version of this game. I can probably still do the “manual” gearshift patterns by muscle memory (on an Epyx 500XJ joystick, of course)
