Roadblasters was a disappointment to all upon its home computer release. For once, nobody got the good end of the stick. US Gold held up its hand in defence crying "Wait! You haven't seen the 16-bit version yet!" And then they went into a-game-

Some of you will now say "Well, that's just a rip off of lots of other games that are around, Highway Hawks for example". Roadblasters was in fact the arcade original, it's just taken quite a while to get here.
On the Amiga version, the story is a little different. Roll slowly across fifty fairly short stretches of road. Move in and out of traffic in small jerks. Oh no, there's a car ahead, and he's in a different lane to you. Don't worry, fire. It'll probably hit him anyway.
As you probably have guessed, I don't think all that much of Roadblasters on the Amiga. It's slow, jerky, unplayable, uninspired, dull, boring, pointless, gabbage, Den Watts (pardon? - Ed) and a pretty bad conversion. Avoid like a concert by The La's (shouldn't that be "by Anthrax" Tone?).
