This is a fine conversion to the 16-bit platform of Atari's arcade classic (circa 1985) .

As in the cartoon, the aim of the game is to keep the Road Runner from getting caught by Wile E. Coyote. The gfx are nice, and sfx and music okay. However the real reason I rank this game so highly is the humour. I never tire of seeing Wile E. Coyote get flattened in the path of an oncoming car.

verdict: A classic slice of arcade action on the ST. Recommended.

A good place where you will find plenty of games & utilities. The webmaster (call him 'cb') also made the Atariforce's compilations. He is largely impassioned by Atari games.

In the mid 80's Atari was approached by a company called Nintendo. They asked if Atari was interested in distributing their new 8 bit system. At that time, Jack Tramiel was head of the Atari company. He declined the offer, saying Atari wanted to stop releasing consoles and focus on personal computers instead! So in the end, Nintendo had to distribute the consoles themselves ... In just a few months, they wiped Atari from the throne!
