Road Rash in bed with a roguelike is not something you think could or should work. The scary thing is just how well it does indeed work. The controls are tight, The overall atmosphere is nailed and they really do smash the Road Rash vibe home. or too many years I have wanted a Road Rash game and now I have finally got a game that fills that void. To new players you will get a brutal introduction into a game series that is varied yet fun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
