From SquakeNet:

   Super Speed Christmas Edition is a top down16 bit era racer, that offers you a selection of 4 vehicles and a great number of small, one screen sized tracks. The game is basically the same as Super Speed, but within its levels a lot of cool graphical wintery elements have made their way in there. You have snow, you have Merry Christmas ribbons flying about and Santa Clause appearing in some of the curves in the game. Thus, if you'd like a simple racer game, immediately recognizable, with that nice RC car feel to it, that is ready to be played during the winter celebrations, and the entire family can enjoy, this is it. On the other hand it's utter simplicity, lack of speed or challenge can be a bit underwhelming, but then again, if you want to involve you grandparents in retro gaming, this can do it the best! Plus it looks great, no jagged edges, no nasty particularities. It's a great game from start to finish and a job to play, when you can get your friends or parents out of the way by bumping into them on the final lap!

Platform:

This ver­sion of Super Speed: The Christmas Edition was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
