Battle Mobile is a vertical shooter/racing game by System Sacom. In a 'Mad Max' like post-apocalyptic wasteland marauders and gangs on board supercharged vehicles roam the country and terrorize the population. The protagonist of the game sees his new wed-wife killed in a horrific car accident caused by one of those motorized gang and decides to plan revenge on his own. Onboard his modified and armed car, he is now engaged in a battle against the bandits who murdered his beloved wife. When driving the car, the directional button controls the vehicle and helps avoiding incoming cars, bikes, trucks and road hazards. Despite being armed, the car can't actually shoot at incoming wheeled vehicles - ground air missiles can be fired but only to hit flying objects. The meat of the game lies in a build-in speed booster feature that allows the player to smash his car against other vehicles, forcing them to crash into the surrounding scenery. A force-field, only available in limited quantities, also comes in handy in desperate situations. The player needs to always keep an eye on the gas gauge as it constantly depletes itself - blue icons often appear on screen and help to fill up the car before it dies out. The game counts five long stages with the obligatory boss battles.
Released on June 25, 1993 in Japan for 8800 Yen.
Move through objects: Defeat a Boss and once Stage Clear appears, move right to the side. If done correctly, you should be floating or going through buildings.
