Loadstar: The Legend of Tully Bodine
Description official description
Loadstar is a rail-shooter concerned with shooting enemies while navigating your ship, much like Sewer Shark. You're actually on rails in this game, as you travel in a truck/train called Loadstar along a magnetic rail network covering the moon. Shifting the cursor to the edge of the screen changes to a different track when available, with incorrect turns either killing you instantly or moving you off-course from the level end. Direction indicators and distant landmarks help keep you driving in the right direction, while accidents, track closures, and robot cops work to keep you from it. Your weapons "tag" enemies and force them to explode, or can tag incoming shots and deflect them with a separate shield button.
Gameplay is broken into three levels as you race from one destination to another to escape with your cargo. The game features sophisticated full-motion video cutscenes breaking up the levels and providing the story. Barry Primus and Ned Beatty star.

The Sega CD port with severely hobbled by the system's limitations. Ironically, Sega had invested heavily in Rocket Science Games and demanded that the game appear first on its system. The game passed Sega's testing procedure, but just barely. The testing procedure? The game had to run for a certain number of hours without crashing.
