Attention span: 9/10 You'll play it all day
Controls: 9/10 2nd accelerates, arrows change direction. No biggie.
Implementation: 6/10 Too unstable, even though everything else rocks.
Overall: 8/10 It's a lot of fun, but there's a risk involved.

Megacar is a racing game by Thomas Fernique. For now it is the only racing game for the TI-89, leaving it a niche to fill. It does so nicely. The accelerating and decelerating is done very realistically, and the graphics are great. It keeps track of best race time and best track time for every level, as well.

This game comes with six external levels, as well as a level editor, which means that new levels will keep the game like new. The level graphics are very good, and the bar at the bottom enhances the experience further. If you ever need to pause, hitting the diamond key will shutdown the calc until ON is pressed.

Unfortunately, there is a very annoying bug in this game. For some reason, when the sixth level is selected, it always gives a "Not enough mem" error, even though all the other levels will run. Apparently checking the mem screen before running it works. However, when Andi's levels (they didn't come with Megacar) are selected, the calc gets an address error. This is extremely annoying, to the extent that I no longer even keep those levels on the calc.

Megacar is really in beta right now. Although when you play a level it is very addicting, you play at your own risk. This game will more than likely crash your calculator at one time or another. Hopefully, the next version will make it a bit more stable.
