Commodore 16, Plus/4Computer Gamer (Jun, 1987)
This game is compulsive, addictive and fun to play. It's good to see software houses actually taking care over the C16 (take note Elite). The game is one of the best around and shows the world that the C16 can be as good as the Speccy or Amstrad if the right person is programming it. Thanks Gremlin.

An excellent variation on the race game theme.

This is undoubtedly a classic. But don't touch it. It'll have you bouncing up and down in frustration.

[...] Trailblazer is absolutely amazing colourful and extremely fast scrolling. The only thing that comes remotely close is driving down the motorway on a pogo stick at a hundred miles an hour while they're repairing it. And I've only ever done that once.

I said Initially that this was a relatively simple concept but I think you can see that there is a lot on offer In this game. Programmer Shaun Southern of Mr Chip Software has done a masterly job for Gremlin, especially when you consider that It was originally written for the C16. It's not often that a game successfully makes this transition to the C64 but this is an exceptional game. Not for a long time have I been so hooked and several times I've been forced to drag myself away from writing this review just to check on a few finer points of the game, you understand.

On the whole though, this is a well thought out game that has all the little puzzles and annoying bits tuned so that they are just Infuriating enough to make you want to play the game again. Incredibly simple but marvellously addictive.
Commodore 64Happy Computer (Nov, 1986)
Wer ein schnelles, unkompliziertes und fesselndes Simultanspiel sucht, sollte bei Trailblazer unbedingt zugreifen. Das Programm ist hervorragend für Turniere geeignet, aber auch für Solospieler interessant.

Trailblazer is maddeningly addictive - pardon the cliché - and proves once again that the simplest ideas are often the most successful. A biggie for sure.
Commodore 6464'er (Jan, 1987)
Verschiedene Spielmodi runden das technisch sehr gut programmierte Spiel ab, das gerade bei zwei Spielern ungeheuren Spaß macht. Lediglich bei Grafik und Sound hätte man sich ein wenig mehr Mühe geben können. Die Bälle sehen recht mager aus und der Titelsong ist auch nur durchschnittlich.
Atari STComputer and Video Games (CVG) (Jun, 1987)
Everything about the game is nice. Excellent graphics, music and sound effects, addictive play. But at £24.95 I don't think the game offers enough to justify the price.
Trailblazer is highly addictive, and with 14 tracks to choose from, you won't get bored in a hurry. At £7.99, it's well priced, the graphics not being spectacular, while the scrolling is excellent
Commodore (UK) (Oct 26, 2007)
With the system's smooth scrolling, and inherent ability to handle multicoloured backgrounds with ease, this simple approach still charms even now. Also be sure to check out the full-screen sequel, Cosmic Causeway - though don't expect to be any better at it...

(Oldie review)
Überhaupt kommt man unheimlich schnell ins Spiel,o hne sich mit viel Vorinformation abplagen zu müssen. Dies zusammen mit dem rasanten Spielablauf (der auch daraus resultiert, daß für jede der insgesamt 14 Rennstrecken ein Zeitlimit vorgegeben ist) macht TRAILBLAZER zu einem packenden, fesselnden Programm. Bleibt zum Schluß eigentlich nur noch die Frage offen, warum man nicht schon längst auch die Amiga- und ST-User in den Genuß dieses Spiels hat kommen lassen?

Le ST persiste et signe dans le genre je-fais-mieux-que-mes-camarades. En effet, cette version du jeu dispose de nombreuses améliorations : sons digitalisés, graphisme fins et colorés.
Atari STGénération 4 (1987)
Un jeu de bonne qualité, dans la lignée des réalisations Gremlins. Les graphismes sont simples et très propres, la musique et les sons bien choisis. Si vous aimez les jeux de parcours vous ne prendrez aucun risque en achetant ce logiciel.
Atari 8-bitASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Dec, 1986)
Die Spielidee ist vielleicht nicht besonders originell, der „Programm-Ablauf“ dagegen ist der „addictive“. „Süchtig“ machen wird TRAILBLAZER mit Sicherheit die Atari-User, die ein ausgezeichnetes Spiel erwerben können! Die Grafik ist ansprechend, der Sound gut. Was will man mehr? Antwort: Entscheiden Sie sich „wenn's geht“, für die Diskette; die Ladezeit ist..., na, Sie wissen schon!

Un jeu simple qui se joue à cent à l'heure.
ZX SpectrumComputer Gamer (Dec, 1986)
It is impossible to recover from some mistakes whereas, on the original, it was usual possible to take any number of routes rather than just the one. Having said all that, Trailblazer is still a frustratingly addictive game, even if not quite as much as the original.
