Sprintmaster is another Atari 2600 game I was able to play thanks to the Atari Collection 2 cartridge on the Evercade system. Again this is another reason to be thankful for the Evercade and the cartridge compilations being released on that system. I see so much potential for this system in the coming years. Sprintmaster is a top down racing video game where we see the cars and the entire track. Since it is limited to the screen you can expect smaller tracks.

The options families have with Sprintmaster is one or two players, bouncing or crashing, and how many laps they would like to race. Graphically Sprintmaster definitely shows its age. There are nine tracks available to families within Sprintmaster. Some of those tracks have walls that vanish for short periods of time. If you can time it just right then you can take those short cuts. If you miss it then you will have a serious problem.

The controls within Sprintmaster take some getting used to. There are certainly enough tracks for families to replay Sprintmaster multiple times. Once I beat a track I had little interest in going back to it. Maybe that is just me though. You might like going around and around in that first circular track over and over again. If you do then you might want to look into Nascar.

There are power ups on the track that will speed you up or slow you down. These are color coded. So the red car wants to go over red objects to do better. The blue car wants to go over the blue objects. If you are the red car and you go over the blue items then it will slow you down. The same thing happens if you go off the track. At least with the bounce option turned on. I never did mess with the crash.

I remember the era of these kinds of racers. They were not my favorite games. The controls in Sprintmaster can be a real pain at times. I found plenty of frustration from playing Sprintmaster. I think this game was an attempt by Atari to catch up with games like R.C. Pro-Am. Sprintmaster is just not in the same league which is sad to report. Atari did the best they could. Graphically Sprintmaster is lagging. The music is nice though.
