Bet all your money on a horse. Bet it all. All of it. Give me your money, I’ll do it for you.

Oh, your horse lost. Bad luck. Cheer up your horse now. It’s sad. Cheer it up. Kiss your horse.

KISS IT.

Watch me lose all my money on the gee-gees:

See the Vic-20 version of Derby Dash
See the Atari 8-bit version of Derby Dash
See the Acorn Electron & BBC Microversion of Derby Dash
See the ZX81 version of Derby Dash
Also very similar to Day at the Races on the Amstrad Cassette 50

Derby Dash (Acorn Electron Cassette 50 Game 41)

Note: the BBC Micro version is identical to the Acorn Electron version

Come and bet all your money on the world’s crappiest horse race! No bends in the track! No fences! Horses that run like their legs are broken! And every single one of them has odds of 8-1!

(That is enough exclamation marks for one review I think).

This is essentially a rehash of earlier game Ski Jump but without the exciting loading screen or Ski Jumpers being crushed to death by their fellow competitors.

Yet, of course, the horse I bet on still comes last…
