Alleykat is a vertically-scrolling racer with elements of a shoot-em up game.

The player, a speeder pilot, strives to become the Alleykat Champion by competing in eight space stadiums scattered around the galaxy. Different races like demolition derbies, time-trials, endurance epics and others feature all kinds of obstacles like rocks, pillars, bridges and hard walls, and several types of enemies race along.

The game also features a cooperative two-player-mode.

Commodore 128 enhancements

The game makes use of faster 8502 processor available in Commodore 128. Thanks to it, the game had more onscreen bullets and more segments to the deadly Katerkillar enemy.
