This darn game is probably one of my favourites, simply due to style! In Moonshine Racers, you play the part of Billy Joe, the moonshiner. As you may have surmised, the object of the game is to beat all the other moonshiners to the finish line, which happens to be Tucker's Bar. Tucker, you see, pays top dollar for any moonshine thrown his way. Along the way, you'll frequently encounter Fat Sam, the county sherriff (and his dog Rommel), who will try to curtail your activities in a manner lifted from the game Chase HQ. Graphically, Moonshine Racers is excellent. It actually LOOKS as if you're driving through the rural USA of days gone by. Lots of neat graphic touches abound, from old-style wooden speed limit signs, tumbleweeds, cattle skeletons, all the stereotypical images are there. Your speedometer looks like it was lifter from an old 50's pickup truck, and all the characters are drawn in period dress. The sound rocks, too. I've had many friends crack up upon seeing the game's intro for the first time (but I won't tell you what it is, it'll spoil the surprise!). Your truck SOUNDS like it's an old clunker, the way the engine gradually builds it's way to maximum output. The only thing missing is the rattle of loose fenders while driving over the bumpy roads. Musically, though, is where the game gets a lot of its atmosphere. Yup, the soundtrack consists almost EXCLUSIVELY of banjo music!!! I was strummin' along (AIR BANJO, Y'ALL!!) with the tunes whenever one of my friends was playing the game. Gotta find the mod soundtrack! The gameplay in Moonshine Racers is spot-on. The game controls are somewhat responsive, maybe less so than your average racing game, but I'll defend the game based on the fact that anyone who's EVER driven an old pickup truck will agree that an old pickup truck's steering can ALSO be described as "somewhat responsive". Har. So, great music, great gameplay, realistic controls, and decent graphics. Normally, that'd be enough for me but NO, the Blitter Brothers have gone that extra mile and put a few more touches on the game. Your character also has a CB radio in the truck, and he gets all sorts of updates (some inadvertent) on the race, such as the truck's temperature, whereabouts of the Sherriff, etc. Moonshine Racers is, all told, an excellent game, and as such is great fun to both play AND watch. I'd give it a 9/10.
