Top Gear (Top Racer in Japan), is a racing video game for the Super NES, published by Kemco and developed by Gremlin Graphics in 1992. Not only does it mark the first game in the Top Gear racing game franchise, but it is also one of the first racing games to be released on the Super NES. The game (and next two sequels) was created by the same developers as the similar Lotus games released earlier in the Commodore Amiga and Sega Mega Drive videogame systems. The objective of the game is to become the fastest driver in the world by racing other drivers across several nations. The franchise is unrelated to the TV program of the same name.
When players first start the game, they are given several options to choose from, including entering their name, a choice of four different controller layouts, a choice between automatic or manual transmission, and their choice of four unique cars. During the race, the player will have to steer and shift gears (if they chose a manual transmission). The player is also given control over three "nitros", which allow the player to increase their speed for a short period of time. The game features a password save system, made up of automotive terms such as "gear box" and "oilcloth". Each password grants access to another country to race in. During the race, there are pits in which players must stop in order to refuel. If their car runs out of fuel and coasts to a stop before the race is finished, the player will be disqualified.
