I just dug up a copy of BC’s Quest for Tires, and, while the gameplay is as weak as I remember (and it’s weirdly short, ending completely without notice), the background graphics are actually quite good, faking what wouldn’t be done on consoles until the Super NES.

Final rating: 2-4: Not ambitious for its time, but cute, and worth playing now for the five minutes that it lasts. If you don’t feel like tracking down a C64 emulator, there’s always Jumpcat, which is pretty similar, only instead of controlling your speed, you control the height of your jump.
