A good conversion, but the coin-op itself isn't really innovative enough to make the game really exciting. Read Review
Great overhead view race game that is only bettered by Ivan Stewart. Vroom! Read Review
The graphics do tend to smack horribly of budget game territory - it's not half as pretty, fun or clever as Ironman for instance. Read Review
The relatively boring accelerating and braking necessity of Badlands is almost like buying a BMX in order to ride it sensibly along the road. Read Review
Badlands puts you in the hot seat of a mega-fast sprint racing car. Speed round eight death-defying tracks in a race of danger and destruction where failure spells death and success the chance to race another day.
Badlands is a game for one, or two players simultaneously.
It's now 50 years since the nuclear disaster and the sport of sprint racing has evolved into a ruthless battle between armed cars. Race tracks have been built on dangerous ruins, the aftermath of the holocaust, in the zone known as the "Badlands".
Your objective is to race round the eight different tracks as fast as possible, collecting wrenches (spanners) along the way in order to continue to the next round. Failing to finish first means disqualification. Missiles can be found hidden around the tracks behind destructible scenery - in the Badlands even mountains will crumble if shot at.
Between the tracks, and assuming you have collected enough wrenches, you can customise your car with extra acceleration, shields and weapons. Bonus wrenches are awarded for finishing first and beating the fastest lap time.
Badlands features simultaneous two-player action, and a buy-in feature means that a friend can join in at any time. Each player is awarded two continue credits at the start - finish behind any of the drone cars and you will have to use a credit to continue.
Badlands has eight unique track layouts, each set in different animated backgrounds that react to player shots and crashes. These tracks shift and change as the level of difficulty increases.
Player 1 uses joystick
Player 2 uses keyboard
O - Left, P - Right, Q - Accelerate, SPACE - Fire
S - Pause On/Off, F - Quit
