Re-Volt
« on: July 12, 2016, 09:14:15 am »
Hi, it's me again!

Today I resumed my YouTube series, 607 plays revolt, and I realised I have never made a topic about Re-Volt on here.
Do any of you know it? Hopefully you do!
I'd really advise to try it if you like racing games like Mario Kart (it's not very similar to Mario Kart, though, so if you don't like Mario Kart you should try it too!).
I once wrote a review of it on another forum here: https://empireminecraft.com/threads/retro-games.54846/page-3#post-1006388 Please read it, I spent quite some time writing it ;)
What do you think? :)

Hi 607

I really like Re volt been playing it with my brother recently, we are doing the clockwork carnage mode which is one of the modes you get once you complete the stunt mode by collecting all the stars. By the way in the practice mode you have to collect a star in each of the levels. :tal-gold: (One of my favorites is the wild west levels)

The titanic level looks very nice also.

The game can get quite messy with some of the weapons you get in the game. I like the oil one where you place oil on the track and anyone who goes on it start skidding everywhere. The museum level can be a right pain at times but I really like the graphics even till this day. :thumbsup:

I'll need to give your review a read 607. (looks good :thumbsup:) The game has very nice graphics for a 1999 game and I remember playing this game for the first time, it was a demo I tried which only had the (Toys in the hood) track. One other game this got me thinking about is stunt GP a game which I think was made by team 17 not as good as re volt, re volt has to be one of the best RC games. (I could be wrong)

I was having a quick look at your review and might of noticed something about new tracks, I'll need to give some of them a go.

Thanks for posting your review 607. :thumbsup:

Hi 607

I remember playing the demo of the game when it came out. The only track available in the demo was the (Toys in the hood) one. Yes you are right Venice is a very hard track, the computers always tend to beat me on that track. The custom tracks are nice. The ones I remember are the Egyptian one, I remember one with the name Helios, maybe that is the Egyption one. I think I saw yourself playing a titanic level that was flooded as I saw you underwater. There was a map which I quite liked called quake, based on a earthquake that happened as you can tell everything is off place and stuff.

That's a good review you did there 607, Sorry I never replied sooner about your re-volt review, The review explains the game quite well and also has a few screenshots which are very helpful, shows you what the game is all about. I do recommend this game to all you racing fans, it's a really good one. The Museum level was a bit of a nightmare when I first played it a long time ago. The wild west levels looked really nice, I like the atmosphere those levels had.  The 1990s felt like a good decade for video games I feel. 

This game still seems to be alive with the all the online community making maps and cars maybe.

Hope you have a good christmas 607 and to everyone else.

Thanks!
Yes, the community is very much alive. :) Just today, an amazing new track was released! https://kiwis.rv.gl/tracks/spavolt2/
Quake! was my favourite track, actually, before the recent release of Spa-Volt 1. As a kid, The Mines of Alderon was my favourite.

Here's the playlist. I only upload new episodes during the summer vacation (although I sometimes upload alternate versions of episodes outside it).
