Nigel Mansell's Grand Prix - 1980's racing game gets a great Enterprise 128k conversion

The 128k version of R-Type wasn't the only game to grace the Enterprise system, as just moments ago thanks to a heads up by Teemu Korvenpää, we've also learnt that Nigel Mansell's Grand Prix; a game from 1988 and developed by DJL Software Ltd. Has also been converted over to the Enterprise from the Amstrad CPC. Now unlike the other conversion just mentioned, this one has had some rather surprising changes, which makes it far more of an enjoyable game to play.

According to Geco on the Enterprise forums, Nigel Mansell's Grand Prix has been converted from the Amstrad CPC over to the Enterprise and is about 60% faster than the CPC version. The forum member also goes on to say, copying has been removed, the animation of the sky has been replaced by LPT,  the competition area uses two areas, while one is drawn by the program and the other is displayed by the CPC version, the dashboard has been redesigned to be more appealing, the grass has been changed, the animation of the road contains 2x as many phases as the CPC, and further changes including a much better engine base sound has also been mentioned.

And that's pretty much most of the changes explained but for a more indepth explaination make sure to check out the source link below.
