Probe Software returns to the budget scene yet again, with this unusual speedway simulation. Starting off in the local league, the aim is to progress through the national and continental leagues and, ultimately, reach the World Championship in order to make off with the trophy.

Each race is viewed from behind the player's biker, and the oval course moves in perspective according to his position. Acceleration is achieved by pressing the fire button and one turbo-boost is available per race, to get out of trouble or simply try and catch up.

International Speedway makes a good attempt at something different, and succeeds to a large extent. But the main problem is that it's only a one player game; competition against computer opponents tends to become jaded after a few races. The inclusion of a few more options - maybe even an engine tuning/bike design section - would have bolstered the lasting interest.
