ClassicGMR (4 pts) 16. ratfink (2 pts) Game Info Coin-op original released in 1985 by Jaleco, ported to the NES by Jaleco in 1988. Other platforms: MSX, Wii. Prequels/sequels/spinoffs: None. Tips Jess Ragan: You're not going to be able to jump immediately after changing directions. Wait until your car pops a wheelie, then drops to the ground before you tap the jump button. Also, the height of your jump depends on whether you're holding up on the D-pad or not. If you just press the jump button, you'll leap over objects but remain on the same level. If you press up and jump, you'll attempt to jump to a higher level. The game is poorly programmed and tends to forget where items are placed. If you're approaching one of the game's many, many cats, reverse direction and scroll it off the screen. Chances are that it'll be gone when you return. However, the cat will probably pop up somewhere else, so be careful! Finally, you get bonus points if you can hit a cluster of cars with oil cans, then bump them all as they're stuck in a spinout. Me: grab 3 balloons and you will warp ahead a level or two and possibly get some kind of bonus. Also: you can jump over cats!
