This platformer with a Blues Brothers
theme loosely follows the plot of the film. You have to escape the prison and get the band back together in order to participate to the "Battle of the Bands" competition.
You can accomplish that by jumping over obstacles, beating a lot of people and collecting coins, notes, wrenches, keys and what not in four levels: Prison, Chicago, Graveyard & Swamp. After each level you will free one member of the band. Additionally, the game designers threw in some rhythm-based action: sometimes you have to press the right buttons at the right time in order to proceed. The game features multiplayer, but you only get to play the rhythm mini-game.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
This title was originally being designed in 1998 for the Playstation by Titus
and BlueSky Software
. Some of the original concepts were a driving/chase game through the movie's locations, like the mall, interspersed with some puzzles, a music/rhythm game with gameplay very similar to the Guitar Hero
mechanics, and a Crash Bandicoot
-like action platformer on a set route. Some of the ideas were ultimately used for the Nintendo 64 game.
