F1 is a 1993 racing video game published by Domark, based on Vroom, a game developed in 1991. It was one of the most popular racing games in the console, mostly thanks to the smooth and fast game engine. The player drives in the fictional Domark team with James Tripp, facing drivers such as Riccardo Patrese and Michael Schumacher, Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger, Mark Blundell and Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert and Alessandro Zanardi, Michael Andretti and Mika Hakkinen, Andrea de Cesaris and Ukyo Katayama and finally Damon Hill and Alain Prost. Ayrton Senna is absent due to his endorsement to Sega's Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II. There are 12 tracks like Interlagos, Imola, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Montreal, Castelet, Silverstone, Hockenheim, Spa, Monza, Estoril and Adelaide. Compared to the real 1993 season, several tracks are missing, such as Kyalami, Donington Park, Magny-Cours, Hungaroring and Suzuka, but the order of the races is correct. While the track layouts are correct as of 1993, due to the impossibility of actually replicate the physics behind a Formula One car all tracks are filled with obstacles close to the track, such as signs, ad boards or platforms above the track to increase the difficulty level, and are 7 laps long. There are four difficulty levels, each one of which increases not only the player and competitors' speed, but also decreases the damage tolerance of the car. In addition to a 2 player Split-screen mode, a turbo mode allowed to increase the sense of speed by reducing sprites and polygons making them roughly the same size as in split screen and running the game at a higher speed. Before and after the race the player is able to set up tyre hardness, wing angle and the transmission, and can be forced to quit if the player fails to make a pit stop to replace worn out tyres, or simply overheats the engine by rapid downshifting at high speed, noticeable by a loud squealing noise. On the Silverstone track there appears to be two retired cars, one by the pits and one halfway round.
