Road Fighter

Road Fighter (remake) — arcade racing with the top view. A remake of very old game Road Fighter.

Road Fighter remake is a remake of the game Road Fighter. Road Fighter is a video game developed by Japanese company Konami. First the game appeared already in 1984 in the form of a slot machine. She later appeared on personal computers and Nintendo game console.

In the game Road Fighter you drive a race car. The aim of the game is to finish the race first. The game has several different tracks, e.g., urban, forest, bridge, sea coast.

While driving the car is spent fuel and needed to refuel. For this you need to catch the pink hearts.

Apart from rivals on the tracks are the usual cars and obstacles (water, oil, rocks) that impede your movement.

The game has three difficulty levels (denoted as A, B, C): A — beginner, B for advanced, C — advanced.

In Road Fighter you see the track from above. Across the screen moves the map itself (the track) from the top down.

In Road Fighter (remake), you can play against computer opponents, as well as together on one computer. When playing together, the screen is split into 2 parts.

The controls are simple:
Key Left / Right and Spacebar — move.
When playing together for the second player to the a / d — left / right Left Shift — move.

The Road Fighter remake is an interesting story. In 2003, on the website a competition was organized. The essence of the contest was to zero in a short period of time to create a remake of the game. The developers decided to build a remake of the MSX Road Fighter. In just 2 months they wrote the first version of the game and took 7th place out of 83 in the contest.

The game is available for Linux, Windows and MacOS.
