Technology[edit | edit source]
Originally called AstroTurf, all pcb's still have the name on the board. The game is housed in a custom extra wide cabinet that six individually colored and lit buttons used to make a player's horse jump. The monitor is a 23" black and white CRT monitor with 6 color overlays to make each of the 6 horizontally stacked lanes match their colored button counterparts. Sounds include a bugle, galloping hoof beats, and crowd cheers.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Up to six players can play against each other, each choosing a horse. Each player's horse begins galloping, and the player must jump over obstacles in their lane by pressing their colored button. The horse that successfully jumps all obstacles smoothly becomes the fastest horse and wins.
Legacy[edit | edit source]
- A European version was released by Löwen-Automaten. A port for the Atari 2600 was released in 1980, programmed by Atari and distributed under Sears' Tele-Games label. It was one of three games to be created by Atari exclusively for the Tele-Games line.
