OutRun CPC - An Amstrad CPC style remake of a hit racer gets a beta update

In 1986 Sega released one of the coolest racers of our time, it was none other than Out Run. An Arcade racer designed by Yu Suzuki, that was not only a commercial success but became one of the best selling games of its time with great graphics, fantastic music and fast paced track racing. It was just a shame however, the Amstrad CPC port was terrible with poor frame rates, colours and sound effects. So it was no wonder, a creator by the name of barbarian.1987 set out to fix all these problems while making the game incredibly smooth since 2012 as a PC port called ' OutRun CPC '.

Sadly because of what the game requires from an original Amstrad CPC with high specifications, and how smooth it runs it will only be a what if, but playable via the PC. So don't expect OutRun CPC to be released on an Amstrad CPC 464 or 6128 any time soon, not unless Batman Group gets a hold of it and does some sort of amazing wizardry. But still, at least you can play it as a beta today, with new fonts, endings and a new map with animated mini-car!
