Now here's an annoyingly difficult game that I only
really found as I was going through the games listed on
Gamebase 64 (the offline version). It seemed to be
calling out to me... "Vinny. Come Vinny. Come play me"!
I was pulled in like the complete mug that I am because
as tempting as it appeared to me, it ended up being
frustrating, annoying, crazy-making and downright
Don't get me wrong -
Roadburner is quite a well presented budget title, and
the music by Sonic Graffiti is thumping throughout.
It's just that I played the game using cheats and still
it was incredibly difficult to get anywhere in the game!
I was pulling me hair out! You can imagine how it would
have been if I hadn't had the cheats!
Anyway - if you play
Roadburner I'm sure you'll be thinking the same as me:
this is a mix between Spy Hunter, BMX Racers and a
sideways scroller SEUCK game - which isn't a bad thing.
Passed the difficulty side of things it's a good game...
The final stage is
...and our hero
passes the final road block.
(the older retro gamers will get that reference
- just remember, he's getting OUT of the car)
Run for it!
The End. (Anyone
recognise the font?)
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used a trained version by FUSION that gave me infinite
bundles of joy!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have completed the final stage, you whiz passed
the final roadblock and come to a skidding halt. You
climb out of the car and make a run for it just as it
explodes! The ending message reads: "WELL DONE."
