Micro News (Dec, 1991)
Les animations dansent une sarabande effrénée et les mouvements du personnage, d'une fluidité impeccable, répondent à 100% au maniement du joypad. De la même façon, les musiques rock à la sauce Konami accompagnent à merveille l'action fulgurante de Roller Games. Sans compter que ça peut se jouer à deux et de concert - je ne vous raconte pas le véritable délire ludique qu'il procure...
VideoGame (Oct, 1991)
Uma terrível gangue seqüestrou uma família inteira, e D.J. Boy, um hábil patinador, deve usar de toda a malícia e habilidade para fazer o resgate. No caminho pela cidade, muitas dificuldades: muretas, motocicletas e caminhões que deixam cair barris tentarão impedir o sucesso do herói. Este game, lançado nos Estados Unidos com o nome de Rollergames, é sobretudo um jogo de habilidade. Mas conta com excelentes gráficos e proporciona ação surpreendente. Confira!

Rollergames has its flaws but still makes for an fun afternoon. I can honestly say I was not expecting much from it but came away surprised. A little more work could have made Rollergames great but Konami deserve props for making something so obscure entertaining.
RollerGames initially turned me off since the controls seemed funky (my fault) and the setting had been removed from the roller derby track and set in the streets. It seemed like a fighting game clinging to the popularity of roller derby. Once I got over that, RollerGames is a slick combo of genres with great graphics and sound along with an interesting mix of side scrolling obstacles and vicious fights.
Have you seen this before? Yes. Have you seen variety like this in other games? Probably. But there's something about RollerGames that makes it appealing. Perhaps it's the combination of roller skating and Double Dragon. Perhaps it's the silly-named enemies like Captain Meat Hook and Fish Face. Or, perhaps most likely, it's the amounted absurdity of an action game (that should be a roller derby game) about people on roller skates saving the world in a somewhat traditional yet player-friendly manner. Whatever it is, a quick game of RollerGames, ridiculous as it may seem, is a great way to kill some time.

Rollergames ist sicherlich kein Referenzmodul. Wer sich am Thema und den gelegentlichen Prügeleinlagen nicht stört, der darf sich auf ein spannendes Spiel freuen, das längere Zell an den Bildschirm fesselt.
The graphics and music are both solid, but the drawback here is the difficulty, as navigating many of the traps/pitfalls successfully requires very precise movement/timing, and even a slight miscalculation/error can lead to death. Still, it’s a technically sound game with some decent graphics and sounds, and may be worth a play or two until the difficulty overwhelms.
Rollergames is segmented in the same manner as any of Konami's blockbusters, with great graphics, smooth scrolling, and Bosses. What the game lacks, however, is a sense of purpose. It ends up short, with little of the Double Dragon-style action it is trying for.
Play Time (Nov, 1991)
Als Spieler hat man dabei nicht nur mit einer zähen Steuerung, widerlich flackernden Sprites und einem ruckartigen Scrolling zu kämpfen, sondern wird dank des einfachen Schwierigkeitsgrades kein einziges Mal so richtig gefordert. Die lahme Geschwindigkeit und die durchschnittliche Musik laden ebenfalls nicht zu einem längeren Verweilen in der pseudo-endzeitmäßigen Atmosphäre ein.

Given Konami’s acclaimed track record of non-stop greatness, Rollergames is an incredible disappointment. Sorry, Mr. Commissioner. You should have chosen a competent rescue squad.
