Drive down a narrowing track for high score!


Where did this game come from? Back in the early 80's there was a computer magazine called Compute! Every month it would have games you could type up in basic for multiple computers. Roader came out sometime in 1984, and I thought that this would be a good game to start out with on the Gameboy.


This is a simple game I wrote to learn how to program in C with a Gameboy. This will probally be the only version of this I put out, but if I do choose to make a new version it will most likely have sound and more variety in the track. The source is fairly messy and I if I were to sit down and reprogram it, there would be several things I would do different. But, this was mainly for me to learn how the Gameboy C compiler worked. I will probally put out at least one more Gameboy game, but don't hold me to that. Also, I have never tried this on a real Gameboy, only in emulators. If you get this dumped on a cart, please let me know how it runs.

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A DOS APP! You need a Gameboy emulator or a cart dumper to play this game! To get an emulator try Dave's Classics for one.
