DESCRIPTION

[ARCADE] Arcade PCB

Ballistics © 2003 Triotech Amusement.


As a pilot in the BALLISTICS seat, a single player drives a sleekly designed jet-propelled 'Speeder Bike' through a magnetic cylinder that serves as a futuristic racetrack. The Player is seated at a full 360 degree range of movement and is spiraled along the magnetic track with the task of avoiding obstacles and other racers that could slow him down. At the same time the player must maneuver towards various power-ups. Power-ups include 'Super Booster Pills' which allow the player to accelerate at twice the normal capacity and 'Ice Patches' which allows the player to super-cool his high-octane engine.
