    Road Fighter © 1984 Konami.

    Road Fighter is an exhilarating, high-speed scrolling racing game.

    A unique characteristic of Road Fighter is the fact that bumping into an enemy car does not count as a miss. The counter-steering technique required to 'straighten' your car after bumping into an enemy provided a new level of racing game fun to fans.

    TRIVIA
    Road Fighter was released in December 1984 and is the first car racing game from Konami.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Do not miss the bonus car: As you proceed in the game, the difficulty level increases. You will make more misses and will lose fuel quickly. If you spot a bonus car, make sure to run into it, even if it requires you to slow down in the process.
    • Get used to counter-steering: Driving without bumping into the enemy is extremely difficult. If you do bump into them, learn to stay calm and counter-steer!
    • Secret bonuses: They are all hard to obtain, but they are worth the try! Keep on driving for a certain amount of time without bumping into the enemy -- Konamiman, a train, or an airplane will appear and give you bonus points.
    • Run into bonus cars without missing any -- more bonus points.
    • Make it to the goal without bumping into any enemy -- 10,000 bonus points.
