“MegaCar” is a very engaging game that keeps you going and is very challenging. The game comes with 8 tracks, so it always has a record for you to beat. It is very addictive. I got this a few months ago and I’m still playing it. It is an application, so just hit [ALPHA] + [M] and you’re there. It also has a cool starting screen.

You can also make your own track but I have yet to try it out. The controls are very responsive and game play is phenomenal. But it would be better if there was more than one top score per track, maybe 3 per track, and an over view of the track in a corner would be nice. But now I'm being picky.

So I rate this game a 5 out of 5.

“MegaCar” is an amazingly good game. When I first downloaded it from a friend, I found it challenging, which I feel is always a good sign for a game. The game speed is very fair and the graphics are right on the mark. The tracks are among the best I have played, and I got hooked on “MegaCar.” “MegaCar” is a very stable game and, being an application, makes it that much better.

“MegaCar” has got to be the best racing game for the 83+! The gameplay is smooth and the controls are great! The graphics aren't extravagant, but at the same time, they aren’t bad. But what I like most about this game is the level editor. You draw the track in a painting program, save it, and then use the level editor to make it into a level. Best of all, it makes it into an 86 level, so it will work on 86's! Once you have that 86 file, you use Paul Marks' clever level converter to make it into a 83+ program! This editor, along with the game itself, has obviously had a lot of work put in to it.

I give this game a well-deserved solid 10/10! “MegaCar” is most definitely worth the download.

This is a fairly good birds-eye racing game. The graphics are smooth and fast, though somewhat lacking in aesthetic quality. There are some good tracks included, and you can make more with the level editor. “MegaCar” is decent, but it would be better if there were opponents to race against and perhaps power-ups. In addition, the graphics could be improved. Otherwise, playing “MegaCar” is a great way to pass the time.

“Megacar” is an excellently programmed game. Just the fact that the entire game (application AND external track files) is stored in the Archive memory and not the RAM makes this a very good game. This is the best bird's-eye racer I've ever played on my calculator. It may also be the best game I have for my calculator. I've had this game for at least a year and I still play it quite often.

The controls are great. The car speeds up quickly, turns quickly, and it actually brakes too, which is useful for some of the harder turns. This game is extremely user-friendly: once you've sent the game and the track files to your calculator, you don't have to worry about them again, because the track files are well kept by the application. Best of all, in “Megacar,” you're not racing against anything except a count-up timer, so it's less frustrating.

I give this game 10/10 without hesitation.
