Crash! (Jul, 1989)
[Re-release] The emphasis in Roller Coaster is to have vast amounts of fun, and, boy, do you! Each screen is deviously devised, but not difficult to master once you get to grips with the gameplay. And the gameplay — it's so addictive! Don't hesitate to buy Roller Coaster, it's one of the best budget buys this month!

So what is it that makes Roller Coaster almost as much fun as the real thing? I'm not sure. It's a high scorer - but that's not enough. And it looks good and has some classy opening music and spot effects - but that's not enough either. Then I think it must be the sheer addictiveness. Nothing's so difficult that you won't achieve something first time - but to get every bag you'll need to practise on every ride. And curiosity about what comes next will spur you on.

Going back to Rollercoaster is like going back to Blackpool; you know it can never compete with Disney World, but you wouldn't want it to. It has a kind of pure and tacky British charm that never ages or fails to make you smile.

Although Roller Coaster has a simple, one objective plot the number and diversity of rides make it entertaining and irritating — most of the action involves jumping or falling of some kind. The game bears a slight resemblance to Jet Set Willy as you must work out which way you should move around the screen. However, it goes further because your actions on one screen may dictate your death on another. Not all signs and exits are passports to other rides. Roller Coaster may seem an after-thought release by Elite, but it is way ahead of most of the Willy rip-offs.

[Budget re-release] Although it's unquestionably an original treatment, I think we prefer our games a mite easier these days – or at least easier to get into. Still, it's better than Wilf (all right, I know that's not saying very much). For platformies who like a challenge (and then some) only.
