Max Downforce - Racing game with classic Arcade inspirations gets a Windows release

During the late 80's Namco released a brilliant arcade racing game called Pole Position; a game which was designed by Tōru Iwatani, designer of Pac-Man, and ending up as one of the most popular arcade racing games of 1982-3. It was such a good game, it was also released on multiple systems including the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 8-bit, Commodore 64/128, Commodore VIC-20, Intellivision, Vectrex, MS-DOS, TI-99/4A and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Well if you remember this game, you'll be interested to know that Robbert Prins of Foppygames has released a very similar game for Windows which he calls 'Max Downforce'.

A portion of the seconds remaining upon completing a lap is carried over to the next lap. Tools used to create the game was Lua and LÖVE (Love2d), Notepad++, Paint dot net, SFXR and Audacity.
