Back of Box - Atari ST-C64 (US/CAN):

    METROCROSS™

    It's you against yourself. And the clock. Easy enough. Except for the barrage of barriers that stand between you and the finish line. And, oh yes, little inconveniences such as rats the size of cars eager to leave a sharp impression on you. There, there now. Don't let that stop you. After all, the measure of true success is the amount of obstacles one must overcome. Like hurdles that bring to mind skyscrapers. And big barrels, as in rolling right at your legs. And potholes. How wide? There's a picture of the Grand Canyon in your encyclopedia. Now's the time to look. Ready for countdown. Don't slip. Jump on a skateboard and speed over the green slime tiles. Ever wonder what it would feel like to get shot out of a cannon? There're springboards along the course that'll shoot you through mid-air like a surface-to-air missile. Well, now. How do you feel? You've crossed the finish line. Easy now, you're really huffing and puffing. Save your breath. There are 24 levels in all. And each gets harder and harder as you go along. Metrocross. The fastest, most challenging, most cockamamie course ever conceived by man or beast. • Fast-paced, race against the clock play, designed to challenge your every move. • 24 levels of obstacle courses in detailed, colorful graphics. • Springboards and skateboards that help you speed to the finish line. • Play individually or against a friend. METROCROSS. Another intensely fun game from U.S. Gold.

Back of Cassette Case - ZX Spectrum (UK Kixx release):
    METROCROSS™ ... Are you the one in a million who can think in microseconds not minutes? ...
    If you are, Metrocross is the challenge that's been designed to inspire you, if you're not then you'd better fast improve your skill and co-ordination. A chequered floor riddled with potholes, a barrage of obstacles that hinder your progress and no go areas that bring you to a standstill make this race against time increasingly impossible. But not everything is against you. Springboards are primed to catapult you forward and a speeding skateboard waits ready to hurtle you along that desperate rush to the finish line. If you beat the clock the first time there's no guarantee you'll not be flattened at the next level.
