Remember Road Rash for the Genesis? Now you can play the skull-bashing game of highway hijinks on your Game Boy Color. Hit the streets on your super bike and prepare for no-holds-barred motorcycle street racing where rules as well as fellow bikers are made to be broken.
Road Rash lets you take on fifteen of the meanest, nastiest rashers on the road through five difficulty levels, each level containing five tracks. To qualify on a track and advance, you must place among the top three finishers. The better your performance in a race, the more credits you earn.
Each race in this game is a battle as punks and road hazards slow your progress. You'll be attacked with chains, clubs, pipes and other weapons, but you can punch your enemies, take their weapons and wield them as your own. Police patrol the roads; if you are not careful, they will issue you a ticket.
Whenever you crash or collide with road hazards or other vehicles, your motorcycle will suffer damage. When your bike explodes from too much damage, the race will end and you can pay to repair your bike. You can also use your money to upgrade your bike. There are fifteen bikes available (such as the Shuriken 400 and Diablo 1000 N), each varying in horsepower, weight and cost. A password feature lets you save your bikes and your progress.
You can play Road Rash solo or race head-to-head against a friend. The two-player mode requires two cartridges, two systems and a Game Link cable. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
