Buggy Boy on the Commodore 64

Buggy Boy is an off-road racing game. The object of the game is to drive around one of five courses (Offroad, North, East, South or West) in the shortest time possible.

Each course has five legs, each filled with obstacles such as boulders and brick walls.

Points are awarded for driving through gates and collecting flags. Offroad is a closed-circuit course that takes five laps to complete while North, South, East, and West are each a strict point A to point B style course.

The player could also hit logs and tree stumps in order to jump the buggy over obstacles, gaining extra points while airborne. Extra points are also rewarded for driving the buggy on two wheels.

In Buggy Boy you were required to do little more than race to the finish line as quickly as possible but you only had a limited amount of time to complete each checkpoint but there were a variety of hazards to hinder your progress. These hazards included logs, boulders and water hazards.

To help you out by passing through certain gates it was possible to increase your time by a small amount, while other gates awarded you with extra points. The tracks were well designed and tough to negotiate.
