F-1 Spirit is a remake of the classic top down racing game released by Konami in 1987.
The F-1 Spirit remake is mostly identical to the original in that you first have to clear tracks in a top-down view with stock cars, rally cars and so on by accumulating points given for finishing in the first places until you actually get to play the Formula 1 tracks.
Otherwise there are a number of enhancements to the original, such as enhanced graphics, improved music, more realistic physics, real shape shown in the maps, camera rotation and zoom, split screen for up to four players, (online) highscore tables and replay saving.
Initially, you can only race in stock, rally and F3 categories. But, as you win races, you will accumulate points that will allow you to play in more car categories. Specifically, you will sum 9 points if you finish a race in 1st position, 8 if you finish in 2nd position, etc. If you finish in 10th position or more, you will not sum any point.
During a race, you run the risk of colliding with other cars and with the track fences, etc. This will damage your car. In every track there is a zone (labelled with the “PIT” letters) where you can replenish the fuel tank of your car and fix your car.
This game was developed for the Retro-Remakes Remake Competition 2004.
