Atari Badlands

Werbetext (englisch)
First Universal Driving Game Kit Ever!

It has been 50 years since the nuclear disaster. The sport of sprint racing is now a ruthless battle between armed cars. These races take place on tracks built in the ruins of the dangerous nuclear zone known only as the BADLANDS.

This is sprint racing gone BAD! It's all-out war on the track as playes blast away at the drones (and each other) to finish first! Players shoot playfield targets for extra points and bonus missiles!

One or two payers can race at any time with Badlands buy-in and game continuation features. If a player loses to one of the drone cars, he can put in another coin to continue on to the next heat and retain any custom car options he has acquired.

Badlands has eight unique track layouts set in eight different animated backgrounds that react to player shots and crashes. These tracks change as the level of difficulty increases.

Neben den Tengen-Umsetzungen wurde das Spiel auch auf den Amstrad/Schneider CPC portiert.

BadLands ist in den Spielesammlungen Midway Arcade Treasures 3 (2005; PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube) und Midway Arcade Treasures Deluxe Edition (2006; Windows XP) enthalten.
