Racing game


Battle Cross is an intense racing game published by Imagineer. The goal of the game is to take a small futuristic air bikes and to go around one of the various race tracks. Unsurprisingly, players actually race each other to see who makes it to the finish line first. To spice up the formula, power-ups and weapons are available for the taking throughout the game. These weapons dramatically change how the game is played altogether - the laser is unlimited and can stun other racers for a short amount of time, homing missiles fly around the track until they hit an unfortunate racer, invincibility gets the player to knock out anyone in its path, land mines, nitro speed boosts and so forth... A little fairy flies around each track and can relieve a player gone bad. Various hazards are also scattered around each track, from puddles to speed bumps, pinball bumpers and even cannonballs ! The game also features a battle mode where up to five players can race each other up and a solo story mode.

Battle Cross is one of those Japanese games I praise, an unknown title that really needs to come out of its relative obscurity. Here you have it, a game that only a handful of people worldwide have probably even seen outside of Japan. But, who knows, it really could have been a huge party game back in the days. Perhaps the best way to describe Battle Cross is to say that it is a top-down racing game accentuated with Bomberman flavors. If there is a criticism to be lobbed at Battle Cross, it's that it feels more like a party game than a title players are going to sit around and play in solo. But all in all, Battle Cross is pretty unique and the multi-player mode is a blast. A cool addition to your Super Famicom collection.
