Roadblasters was the last of the system 1 games made. It was released
in 1987 and was based off of Matchbox's Roadblasters line of toy cars.
This game was released in two forms: the typical system 1 cabinet with
an added gas pedal and a dedicated sitdown cockpit version. Roadblasters
was definately the most popular of the system 1 games and is still seen
commonly in arcades today. Gameplay can best be described as Pole Position
meets Spy Hunter. There is a total of 50 tracks (whew!) with no time limit to
complete each track but the game was over when your fuel tank was empty.
The game also contains various power-ups for your vehicle such as an "uzi-
cannon" and the "cruise missle" which help the player tremendously. There
was a contest when the game was first released in which you could win a t-shirt
for completing level 50. I have one of these shirts somewhere and will have a photo
of it soon.
