History.dat entry:
Road Fighter (c) 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.
