The first racing game from Konami, Road Fighter, was an arcade “hit” that was not that popular on home consoles. A Korean version has been found for the Sega Master System, believed to be an unlicensed game ported from the MSX release. Thanks to an online preservation website, Road Fighter for the Sega Master System is available again.
More Rad Racer than Spy Hunter, Road Fighter is an overhead racing game that requires you to avoid other cars or lose time. The idea is simple, make it to the finish line within the time frame and with the alotted fuel, refueling is available by hitting a certain car. This double meaning to the other objects on the screen is a gaming mainstay, have you noticed that?
Road Fighter is available now on SMS Power’s website.
