Big Run


Status: No Download, Findability: 1/5

Big Run was the Jaleco coin-op based on the Paris to Dakkar rally which includes a very tough rally car which can be crashed into anything and still plod on.

Popular in the arcades, this C64 conversion was part of Storm’s sudden interest in the C64 and from the games that finally made it, this game could have been good. The game became news in issues of Zzap and Commodore Format, talking of Storm’s new releases. Storm took a very long time to release their games and many including this game, just never appeared.

Rob Whitaker confirmed to GTW that this game was never started, and it seems that Storm had plans for it, but it was never to be. The conversion was cancelled for the C64.

So this means that this case can finally be closed, with a title where there is nothing to look for. Had the game been done, the graphics would have been by Rob..

A shame that it never was, but we can stop the search for this and concentrate on others out there…

Not much of a "Run" for this game…
