Moto Roader is a multi-player futuristic overhead racing game by Masaya where up to five cars (thus five players) can race at once. One of the great originality of the game is the sort of warping system that shoots slow cars back to the front of the race. This may sounds unusually weird at first but it adds a lot to the racing experience, especially during frantic five players races. Cars are nevertheless warped at a price and this feature will slowly consume gas. Cars can also be upgraded between each race. Players get awarded money in function of their final placement and shops allow them to improve various parts of their cars such as engine, brakes, body and also purchase power-ups like bombs, warps, jumps etc... As mentioned at the beginning of this test, Moto Roader is one of the few games (with the excellent Bomberman) to feature an up to five simultaneous players gameplay.

Moto Roader is a great game and the multi-players mode adds a lot to the overall experience. Power-ups also make the game highly playable and fun. The car's handling is excellent too with the possibility to slide and cut corners at full speed. This is what is excellent about this game, the first few plays are quite boring and slow, but if you get the hang to it you will certainly love it. The game looks dated compared to today's 3D graphics, but gameplay still makes it totally enjoyable, a bit like Super Mario Kart for the Super Famicom System. Moto Roader is also a great party game, feature sadly missing from a lot of today's games and current-gen systems (Nintendo's Wii managed to revive it though).
