Power Drive is a top down view racing game developed in 1994 for the Amiga CD32, Amiga AGA and Sega Mega Drive. A year later, Rage Software released a special version of this game for the Atari Jaguar.

Power Drive RallySTORY / GAMEPLAY
The main goal on a racing game is to always win, so this is the whole story. Choose your car, race to win! As a sports driver you challenge your skills through a variety of racing to gain the big prize. The races take place on racing tracks laid out on the Arizona Desert, the African plains and the Alps. Controlling your car when drifting is quite hard and depends on the terrain that gives a different driving feel since it's more challenging to drive on snow or mud than on a dry track. There is a limited number of laps but you'll have the opportunity to overtake opponents and ultimately win the race.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game runs in pseudo-3D environments and its perspective is from above (just like the original Amiga CD32 version). The animation has no slow downs even if the screen is crowded and the visuals on the Jaguar are quite impressive. The engine's sound is greatly sampled and there are some more ambient sounds that accompany you through each race. Comparably, the Atari Jaguar version is slightly better to the Amiga AGA.

I played a similar racing called Power Drive on the Amiga 1200. The game was really great. Great graphics and sound! This Jaguar version though looks awesome!
