Highway Encounter - The Remake
Version 1.11 : FREEWARE
Originally created for the RetroRemakes 2006 competition, this game is a remake of the hugely popular Highway Encounter. This version has a more analogue feel to it, with the ability to turn in any direction (rather than the original's eight). There are also a bunch of other enhancements, such as a level editor and alternative textures. The version 1.11 update addresses some issues raised by the nice inhabitants of RetroRemakes, so a big thank you to everyone there for both the advice and the encouragement.
