DescriptionSubmit Description
Grand Prix is a typical early Activision title: colorful graphics and solid, fun gameplay. In what is possibly the simplest racing game ever made, it is your job to race to the finish line in as little time as possible, all the while swooping in and around other cars on the track. If that wasn’t bad enough, oil spots litter the track's final stretch, making the end of the race quite treacherous. Grand Prix was one of the first games that Activision awarded a patch if you were able to beat a beat a certain time on one of the four tracks and send in a picture of your accomplishment.
