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 Saturday Night Live skits and the Blues Brothers movie was transcribed and is used in the game.
