2001 racing game
F1Time (later renamed to Racing Boss) was one of the earliest F1 racing games online, in 2001 created by enthusiasts from Lithuania it quickly gained a reputation for being challenging and having interesting way of presenting race results.
There were several unusual things about the game - for example you ran not a whole team, but a single driver team that can be coupled with another such team to support each other, you have very little time to figure out the right car setup for each of the tracks, you can use the past data from previous seasons to speed up the process, but overall each race was a challenge. What is more the results of each lap were presented in form of icons of the cars separated from each other by the distance the drivers were from each other on the track, which was a nice touch.
With years the game gained a followers and devoted users, several times was improved, but unfortunately with each change the games was further and further from atmosphere of the original game. For example in current version (2018) in whole game you can’t actually see your car anywhere - even during setup or sponsorship talks there are no cars in sight. The practice laps are limited to 12 before each Grand Prix, which is hardly enough when you have to determine a right choice for 10 parameters.
While still impressive due to long lifespan Racing Boss (previously F1Time) is now only a shadow of former glory with incoherent interface and gameplay that lacks, above all, any sort of fun that could be linked with running your own team.
In Small Devil Inside we are simulating Formula 1 like racing competition, in which your team will compete with others in divisions and racing classes, each with similar, but not identical rules.
This guarantees to keep you as the racing team manager constantly on your toes - you have to keep up with competitors, but at the same time keep up with the changing racing world. Each season the set of tracks will change, so there won'r be chance to get bored with them.
