Ford Simulator - MS-DOS

Ford Simulator2.txt Ford Simulator The first in a series of advertising programs by Ford, which not only provides a large amount of information about the company's products, but also allows you to test them in action on a computer screen. The program covers all Ford car models that were available for purchase in 1987. In alphabetical order, they are: Aerostar, Bronco II, Continental, Cougar, Escort, Festiva, Mark VII, Mustang GT, Mustang LX, Ranger, Scorpio, Taurus, Topaz, Tracer, Turbo Coupe and XR4Ti. By using the Buyer's Guide option included in the program, you can view the detailed technical data of these cars as well as obtain the necessary information regarding the possibility of purchasing (do not forget that this is an advertising product, of course out of date today). From the player's point of view, the most interesting is the first option, which allows you to check each of the sixteen cars on an improvised route. There are four variants of the game to choose from. Touring is a slow ride without any deeper purpose. Drag Strip, on the other hand, allows you to test the acceleration of each car. On a short, straight section of the route, we throttle as much as the factory has given, and then check how fast the vehicle reaches the speed of 60 mph. Slalom, as the name suggests, focuses on avoiding obstacles along the entire route. The last option is the Grand Prix, in which we race on time along a winding track.Ford Simulator offers a nice driving model. It is noteworthy that each of the sixteen cars behaves differently on the road. The audiovisual setting on your knees does not knock you down, but it is still better than in many other games from those years. It is a pity that there was no attempt to differentiate the upholstery depending on what car we are driving, but it was certainly a graphic luxury that was difficult to afford. Generally, Ford Simulator is an interesting product that may be of interest to both automotive fans and enthusiasts of fast car games.
