Rock N' Roll Racing is a racing video game released for the Mega Drive/Genesis and SNES, published by Interplay and developed by Silicon & Synapse (now known as Blizzard Entertainment) in 1993. The game was rereleased for the Game Boy Advance in 2003.
Rock N' Roll was first seen on the SNES, and this version on the Genesis is its equal. With fast-paced racing and the awesome sound effects, RN'R will surely get racing fans off their butts and into the stores.
There are so many awesome tracks to race on. First, race in the easy levels where you can compete for money to increase your vehicle's performance by buying upgraded parts. If you feel that the early level is starting to be a breeze, try advancing to the next level and see if you can handle racing against the big boys. Pick from a variety of drivers from distant places, each having different performance levels and driving skills.
How does one win races? Well, you collect money after each race, the amount depending on how well you do. Buying better tires will enable you to handle those nasty turns. Shocks improve suspension, which is good for jumping off ramps. Increase your acceleration by investing in a bigger engine. Of course, you can also increase your speed by buying nitros. Do you have problems with racers passing you by? Well, we can fix that. Just buy some weapons that you can lay on the track or fire at the other racers to slow them down or make them lose control and eventually crash against the walls. What else can you ask for when you're racing on elevated racing platforms where there are many obstacles and traps for you to avoid and use certain weapons against your driving foes? Hey, it's compatible with the Edge 16 adapter. There you go.
let the Carnage Begin!
The Saurians got the ideas for racing and rock-and-roll from mankind.
Then they added a few of their own touches — like automotive weaponry, offtrack mayhem, and five planets' worth of deadly tracks.
You start by choosing any of the galaxy's top-notch racing heroes.
Select your car and adapt it to the track, and you're ready to rumble.
It's do or die (sometimes both), and anything goes.
Bash and trash the competition as you hug the curves of the course, and pick up diner and car armor in the process.
Scream through shortcuts.
Blow up your opponents.
And rock out to hard-driving tunes like "Bad to the Bone" and "Bom to be Wild."
For game play that's way, way out of bounds, kick into high gear with Rock n'Roll Racing.
- Look for alternate routes in your race map. If you're not sure whether the judges allow a particular route, let an opponent drive ahead of you and follow him.
- If you're caught in a crowd, use your fire button to blast the competition out of the way or run them into a sidewall.
- Memorize the positions of power-ups in your first lap. Then plan every turn so that you can collect each one.
- Save your money in the first set of races to buy the best car rather than spending it on any of the add-ons for your current car.
Earthbound racing too tame for you?
Tear into the interplanetary future with Interplay's Rock n' Roll Racing for the Genesis.
You're up against the toughest alien racers this side of the galaxy.
And the tracks, vehicles, and tunes aren't exactly gentle either.
The courses have spikes, the off-road action can get even uglier, and the brutality just keeps escalating as you advance to meaner planets and opponents.
If you're looking for a fierce racing challenge, this cart's outrageous sound track and no-holds-barred action are gonna drive you wild.
