    FULL THROTTLE

    KOMPLETT DEUTSCH

    Interactive Road Movie

    Du bist Ben. Du bist auf der Straße zuhause. Du bist nicht kleinzukriegen. Und Du versuchst alles, Deinen Namen von diesem Herumtreiber-Image zu befreien. Wie zum Beispiel häßliche Gangs mit futuristischen Motorrädern und neolithischen Waffen zu bekämpfen. Neue Schandtaten mit 100 mph auf der Straße aushecken. Die Leute zahlen lassen. Das ist es, was passiert, wenn Du Dein Leben mit "Vollgas" lebst.

Back of Box - DOS (US):
    Motorcycles. Mayhem. Murder.

    One minute you're on the road, riding. Not a care in the world. Then some guy in a suit comes along, says he's got a deal for you and your gang. But when you come to, you've got a lump on your head, the law on your back, and a feeling in your gut that the road you're on is about to get lot rougher...

    BEAT-UP. BUSTED. MAD. Ben's been double-crossed before. But this time they messed with his gang, they trashed his bike, and they're about to come back for more.

    CHAIN SAWS. TYRE IRONS. SEMI TRUCKS. Everything's coming after Ben at once. Trouble's riding his back so tight it makes the leather squeak. He's got to out-fight it, out-smart it, and out-run it if he wants to survive.

    SUITS. COPS. MINIVANS. The society that him out long ago wants him back--Dead or Alive. A faceless legal system wants Ben for murder. A greedy executive wants him for money. A mysterious woman wants him for revenge.

    WHAT THEY'RE ALL GONNA GET IS UP TO YOU.

    • BLOW YOUR MIND with butt-kicking graphics, brutal puzzles, and a head-on collision of action and adventure!

    • BLOW YOUR SPEAKERS with movie-quality sound and a full digital score featuring the GONE JACKALS - an authentic hard-hammerin' biker band!

    • BLOW YOUR MONEY on another game, or kick-start your computer and go--

    FULL THROTTLE!

    Take a ride to the edge of sanity.

    The intense CD-ROM action of Full Throttle's gonna take you, shake you and maybe even break you - unless you're savvy enough to become Ben, a new breed of hero who just might be able to overcome the brutal predicaments. Did we that you're framed for murder and that the odds are stacked against you? Dare you tread into the Full Throttle territory? We thought so.

    HE'S OUT TO PROVE HE'S INNOCENT OF MURDER.

    AND HE'LL KILL ANYONE THAT GETS IN THE WAY.


    Full Throttle’ scorches the screen like an exhaust pipe on an exposed leg. You're Ben - deserted, left for dead and framed for murder. You'll do anything to clear your name. Like running big rigs off the road at 100 mph. And if a few butt-ugly bikers get the crap kicked out of them in the process, hey, that's life. It's big bad bikes, big bad gangs in a big bad world. It's Full Throttle. Where the courtroom is the street, and the judge is a tire iron.

    You're Ben. You're on the road. You're indestructible. And you'll do whatever it takes to clear your name from a bum murder rap. Like fighting ugly gangs with futuristic bikes and Neolithic weapons. Running big-rigs off the road at 100 mph. Making people pay. But that's what happens when you live your life at "Full Throttle."
