Blastaball

Blastaball

Arcade - Released - 1988

Blastaball is a one-on-one futuristic sport viewed from above, with a small amount of the rectangular pitch visible at a time. Each player controls one of the 10 available spaceships, each with their own subtle strengths and weaknesses in terms of speed, inertia and fire direction.

Roadwars

Roadwars

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1987

In Road Wars you are set charging up a long hilly road, trying to make a road safe after a protection malfunction. Crucially, this involves shooting out the barriers at the side of the road (and avoiding falling into the gaps they create). You always play against another droid, who can be treated as friend or foe - pushing them into the gap at the side you've just created is a particularly neat trick, especially when playing a human opponent. You are armed with a laser gun, which can be directed seperately from your main direction of motion. The roads include a range of hazards, including...
