After the holocaust, black market production of a disgusting but highly addictive
food substitute is causing people to riot everywhere - they want more.
When word reches you that the black marketeers are heading your way (towards the
only city that remains untouched), it's out with the ATV (Armoured Transport Vehicle)
for several levels of alternate driving and walking. Your objective's simple:
push everyone else off the road and blast everybody else off the streets.
What a disappointment! Everything about this looks tacky - incredibly slow
multiload, messy scrolling, blocky graphics, pathetic music and sound effects.
If you can find any enjoyable gameplay, you're welcome to it; I did find it
reasonable for the first two minutes, but then I woke up. The only improvement
about the Amiga version is the better loading. Avoid.
Aargh! Street Machine meets Miami Vice and turns out worse than both. The scrolling's
jerky and the car looks as though it's going uphill when it travles vertically,
because it only goes half as fast as when driving left to right.
It looks as if the
programmers have gone out of their way to design a special multiload because there
just doesn't seem to be enough data involved to fill an ordinary one.
gameplay isn't exactly scintillating, either - just a case of getting in a car
and blowing other drivers up, and then getting out of a car and shooting people.
Not may idea of a loadafun.
