The game was probably inspired by the hugely successful Namco/Atari arcade game Pole Position which was one of the most popular arcade games when Overdrive was being developed. Like Pole Position, Overdrive uses the "rear-view racer format" but there are no bends in the track. The aim of the game is to finish in the top 12 in order to qualify for the next track. There are five different tracks but as there are no bends, the only difference is the change in scenery (fields, night, snow, desert and riverside scenes) as well as a change in the grip.

A game along similar lines to Citadel. Using over a hundred individual sreens, this great platform adventure had you once again playing a guy who spends most of his time finding keys, solving puzzles, opening doors, and bribing wizards! This game was tougher than Citadel, with some downright frustrating screens and puzzles. The graphics are similar, but perhaps slightly better than Citadel, with better sprite resolution. The sound, like many of these games, is at best average.
