Summary

The Megastyle team excels at single button games on the Commodore 64 and Cruisin’ For A Bruisin’ is no exception. It is well executed but this genre of game style is ultimately limited to being nothing more than high score chasers that is fine for a party game environment but in single player mode is only good enough for a one time play. In game graphics are a little lacking as I would expect multi-colour to be the design choice to adapt for this style of game to provide something more stimulating to the player and I did often get frustrated when the randomly generated platforms where placed in impossible distances. The stand out of the game is the sublime SID rendition of Royal Republic’s ‘Getting Along’ – without it the game would score much lower.
