Description

The Blues Brothers are on the run from the law. Take control of either bulky Jake or nippy Elwood in this five-level platform game. You must cross a prison, a river and the big city to reach freedom. You also must find your missing records and collect these. Everything and everyone is against you, but you can pick up and throw warehouse crates to defeat your opponents.

Trivia

Covermount release

In 1995 this game appeared on the coverdisk of a UK Amiga magazine. The catch was - the game was password-protected, and you had to phone a special hotline and pay £7.99 (more than it cost through a mail-order company at around the same time) to gain access to it. £4 went to the UK charity Comic Relief.

Music

Some of the music from the Blues Brothers movie and the Saturday Night Live skits (also featured on the live album Briefcase Full of Blues) was transcribed and is used in the game. The re-arranged songs featured in some versions of the game include The Peter Gunn Theme, (I've Got Everything I Need) Almost, Everybody Needs Somebody to Love and Shotgun Blues
