Nintendo Famicom Family Circuit SKUFM7 is a racing game, published by Namco in Japan in 1988.
Family Circuit (ファミリーサーキット) is a racing game designed by Masanobu Endoh (designer of Xevious), published by Namco for the Famicom. It was the first Famicom game published in 1988. It was never released outside of Japan, or translated into any other language. It is a simple racing game designed to be accessible to players of all skill levels. Rather than having to beat early skill levels and unlock better cars or more difficult race tracks, everything is immediately available to the player. The challenge of the game is to customize the cars so that they are well suited to take on opponents in four skill classes, and become a good enough player to compete in the highest class of racers.
The game is portrayed from a top-down perspective. All race tracks start from the starting line, and continuously move upward along a curvy track until the starting line is crossed again. While the tracks are meant to be circular, the player never actually directs his car down on the screen, only up. Cars can never crash into one another, so it’s possible to drive right through an opponent, although it’s possible to crash into obstacles that are place just outside of the track. Each class has its own set of racers and tracks.
