Formula One: Built to Win Cover art of Formula One: Built to Win Developer(s) SETA Corporation[1] Publisher(s) SETA Corporation[2] Distributor(s) Nintendo Director(s) Banjyo Tadano[3] Designer(s) Producer: Toru Ishikawa[3] Artist(s) Hiroyuki Chiken[3] Composer(s) Masa Konishi[3] Platform(s) Nintendo Entertainment System[3] Release date(s) NA November 1990[4] Genre(s) Formula One racing[3] Mode(s) Single-player Formula One: Built to Win is a racing video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System that is centered around its career mode. Once the player enters in his or her user name (one letter initial for given name and a family name), the player has to start out driving a Mini Cooper (from the British Motor Corporation) without an international racing license.[5] From there, he or she must earn the rankings needed to get better performing vehicles and automobile parts.[5] These cars consist of the Vector W2[5] (from Vector Motors) and the Ferrari F40[5] (from Ferrari); most of the game is driven with these vehicles. Races start out as single-lap events but become double-lap events as the player starts racing against more experienced competition in places like Las Vegas, Nevada and Hawaii.[5] Formula One: Built to Win is also considered to be one of the first racing games with races that contain multiple stages.[6] With gameplay similar to Rad Racer and Pole Position, the driver races towards the back of the screen.[6] Drivers must also be prepared to negotiate their way through civilian traffic.[6] Despite the American setting (which was unusual for a game made by a Japanese-based company at the time), Vector Motors is the only American name brand for automobiles used in the game. The more familiar name brands of Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, and Pontiac (which also have dominant legacies in the automobile racing world) are absent because of licensing issues. European name brand vehicles are dominant (the British Motor Corporation is considered to be a British company while Ferrari is an Italian company). The names of the opponents are chosen partially at random; they can also vary because of the ranking level of the course and the type of vehicle used. Like in Rad Racer, the player can supercharge his or her automobile to go up to 255.000 miles per hour (410.383 km/h). While it is not possible to reach this limit with the Mini Cooper or the Vector vehicle, the limit can be easily achieved with either a fully powered-up Ferrari or a fully powered-up Formula One vehicle. Realism is affected by this because it was considered to be more plausible for a Formula One car in the early 1990s to go up to 255.000 kilometres per hour (158.450 mph) as opposed to 255 miles per hour.

The last stop in the continental United States is considered to be Los Angeles; Hawaii is considered to be the final stop in the entire United States. All of tracks that make up the Formula One portion of the game are actual Formula One tracks from around the world.[7] Elements from the 1990 and 1991 Formula One seasons have been used for this video game.[7] Most major American racing competitions like the Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 500 are excluded from the game due to lack of proper licensing. Even though the American South serves as the origin of stock car racing in America, tracks from the NASCAR Winston Cup are not included the game for that same reason. Because this game is based on the career of a race car driver who is trying to go from "Rags to Riches," the beginning of the game provides a slow and conservative period. Designing an unbeatable car from the parts that they purchased in parts shops helps improve the handling, acceleration, braking, and maximum speed of their vehicle. It is possible to develop millionaire or even multimillionaire race car drivers by being successful at the slot machine game at the Las Vegas portion of the game which may be visited at any time.[8] Even though the player must manually turn his or her entire bank account into casino tokens, the casino tokens are automatically turned back into "dollars" after the player leaves the casino. The player must earn money in order to keep racing; this is done by either winning races or finishing in podium position. After winning the race, the money must be invested in faster and/or more efficient parts to improve the performance of the vehicle. Having a more efficient racing vehicle will eventually result in winning more difficult races where the winner's prize is higher than in the easier races. Eventually, winning certain races will result in acquiring an international racing license. Players must learn that it "takes money to earn money"; this is a maxim that is just as effective in race car driving as it is in business.[9] Parts in this game vary in cost and tires can only be used a limited number of times before they have to be purchased again. Tires that have the worst handling can be used an unlimited number of times. These tires are the only automobile parts that are free and the player automatically starts out with these at the beginning of the game's "career mode." It is assumed the sponsor is paying for these tires and not the player. The currency used in the game is the dollar regardless of the license or vehicle that the player holds in the game. Other modes In addition to the career (normal) mode of the game, there is also a "free mode" of the game that allows unlimited use of all four vehicles on their respective tracks.[10] These races are done without the distraction of other vehicles.[10] All races in "free mode" are single-lap only. There is still a limited amount of nitro like in the "normal mode" of the game. However, all races done under "free mode" always start with the nitro gauge filled up. New time records made in the "free mode" are saved into the game's battery along with the driver's name until they are broken by another player. Once the player reaches the Formula One level, he or she must race against drivers whose names sound similar to the actual drivers of the 1990 and 1991 Formula One seasons. For example, Satoru Nakajima is known in the game as S.Nakazma. Flag Race Track Suzuka Circuit Paul Ricard Circuit Gilles Villeneuve Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez Phoenix street circuit Jarama Silverstone Circuit Monaco Music and artwork Real life settings The first championship the player must face is in Niagara Falls, New York for the Niagara Cup. Although the historic Niagara Falls is seen in the game, the urban setting is mysteriously absent. Formula One purists should also note that the Canadian Grand Prix race track is also missing its urban terrain; the course is located near downtown Montreal in real life. Cities like Detroit, Michigan and Los Angeles, California are shown in remarkable clarity along with real-life backdrops. Destinations depicted in the game include Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Despite the limitation of 8-bit graphics, the two Walt Disney theme parks are shown in then-current accurate detail using recognizable attractions as part of the background (Spaceship Earth, Cinderella Castle, Mark Twain Riverboat, Space Mountain). While Space Mountain, Mark Twain Riverboat and Cinderella Castle can be seen in both the Fantasy Dream (which depicts Walt Disney World) and the Laguna Beach (which depicts Disneyland Park) tracks, Spaceship Earth can only be seen when racing in the Miami area. However, the placement of Disney World in the background is highly illogical because it is located 235 miles (378.2 kilometres) away. Spaceship Earth doesn't have the size or the mass to be clearly seen from that far away. Also, the curvature of the Earth and the terrible pollution over Florida[11] would obstruct the view. Songs The player may choose from one of three songs or no music at all. Different genres are used throughout the entire game. There is a calypso-type song that is similar to the opening theme music of Viva Piñata in addition to a song with a slight resemblance to 1980s new wave band music. A third music selection sounds similar to carnival music (it motivates the player to have fun while winning the races and earning money). When the player enters the casino, there is a fast-paced tune that plays throughout the visit to the casino (regardless of whether the player is playing the slot machines or acquiring tokens). Pictures Title screen   Casino gambling offers way for players to earn money for faster and more efficient parts.   In this picture, a sample player is racing in his or her vehicle reaching a speed of 202 miles per hour (325.1 kilometres per hour) using parts purchased from various cities.   For more information See also Taito Grand Prix: Eikou heno License; a Japanese-exclusive video game released by Taito three years prior to the release of this game that shares most of the concepts with this game References ^ "Developer information".
