RoadBlasters plays in much the same way as Fire and Forget, an into the screen shoot-'em-up on the road, but the simple idea works very well. Once the early levels have been completed, it starts to become very testing and actually quite addictive as your determination to succeed increases. Even though both versions were designed independently, comments of game content apply equally.

Absolutely splendid stuff! Incredibly fast and playable, this is an excellent driving game that incorporates fast gameplay and colourful graphics. Has a brilliant shoot 'em-up element!

As vehicular combat games go, this is one of the best. The action is fast and there are tons of levels to master. It would have been nice to see more options and modes, but this is a solid portable game that still holds up alarmingly well. Once you play RoadBlasters you too will yearn for a sequel.

Roadblasters is a challenging game and is technically superb, with stunning graphics and great speech. But the small screen makes it very difficult to actually see other cars approaching, and as a consequence it does get frustrating. It's fun, but the high frustration levels forces me to recommend that you try before you buy.

Power Play
Das Lynx kann hier die 3D-Muskeln spielen lassen: Dank des Spezialchips ist die perspektivische Darstellung von Fahrbahn und Sprites tadellos. Zur fehlerlos flüssigen Grafik kommt das unverwüstliche Spielprinzip. Steuerung und Leveldesign erweisen sich als gut und fair. Akustisch werden neben der flotten Musik ein paar gut verständliche Brocken digitalisierter Sprache gereicht. Lediglich die Endlos-Continues, bei denen die Punktzahl nicht auf Null zurückgesetzt wird, hätte man sich schenken sollen. Auf jeden Fall ist Road Blasters mein Lieblingsmodul fürs Lynx: handfeste Edel-Action für Unterwegs.

Gegenüber dem Spielautomatenvorbild wurden so gut wie keine Abstriche gemacht. Mehrere Dutzend Levels sorgen für langfristiges Rennnvergnügen.

Road Blasters on the Lynx looks and plays great. The graphics are decent on the small screen and the little details are still visible! The car handles well and the game retains all the features of the arcade version built in. Lynx players won't be disappointed.

Okay, für heutige Verhältnisse bietet auch Roadblasters nur ein minimalistisches Gameplay, was gleichzeitig aber auch einen ganz eigenen Charme beherbergt. Schade nur, daß Atari bei der Portierung die Steuerung so verhunzt hat und nicht zumindest ein bißchen mehr Abwechslung in das fertige Game gepackt hat. Rennspielfans können sich die mittlerweile recht seltene Cart ja trotzdem mal ansehen!

Je ne suis pas franchement convaincu par cette adaptation certes fidèle d'un jeu somme toute assommant, qui présente des défauts difficiles à faire oublier.
