Burnin' Rubber





Burnin' Rubber 


I am so thankful I had the money to purchase the Data East Collection 1 on the Evercade. Burnin' Rubber is one of the ten retro video games on this cartridge. I had a blast playing Burnin' Rubber. When I first started playing Burnin' Rubber I was not into this game. I did not understand what the jump button was. The jumping in Burnin' Rubber is very helpful since there are walls and rivers we need to traverse. Jumping is the only way over them as well.

My first few tries I just kept falling into the river in Burnin' Rubber. Burnin' Rubber is one of those older video games where there was no tutorial. You had to figure it out for yourself. I eventually read the manual that came with the Evercade cartridge. I tried that button and I was off to the races. I mean that literally and it was not any lame attempt at a pun. The races in Burnin' Rubber have finish lines so we can complete each of the tracks.

There is an interesting game play mechanic within Burnin' Rubber. Players will get knocked around by the NPC vehicles. Players can return that to the NPCs in Burnin' Rubber. If any vehicle crashes into a wall then they will explode and need to start all over from the last checkpoint. The computer controlled vehicles will explode and turn into points when this happens. Players can also jump and land on NPC vehicles to turn them into points.

The retro music is jamming in Burnin' Rubber. I really got into the music while I played Burnin' Rubber. The music in Burnin' Rubber enhances the gameplay of this game. I learned to stay in the middle as much as possible while I played Burnin' Rubber on the Evercade. I am a bit sad I missed Burnin' Rubber when it was on the 8-bit NES and the arcade. The more I played Burnin' Rubber the better I got at it. The graphics are better than I actually expected.

I like how the different tracks in Burnin' Rubber have different themes. It is neat to see some of the ideas that were used in this retro survival racing video game. Want a pro tip on Burnin' Rubber from a pro player? If you are getting knocked around too much in Burnin' Rubber then jump. Jumping can save you from being smashed into a wall.
