Road Riot 4WD [MD/G – Cancelled]

A Genesis / Mega Drive version of Road Riot 4WD was in development at Tengen in 1993, but it was later cancelled. The game is an arcade racing game somehow similar to Mario Kart. A SNES (1992) and an Arcade (1991) versions do exist, but while the SNES version doesnt look that good, the Genesis one seems to have been graphically more similar to the Arcade game. It’s currently unknown if the canned game would have had new tracks. Some images were found in Joypad magazine #7, EGM # 40 and # 41!

    As per German ‘Gamers’ magazine 1/93 there were supposed to be 11 tracks. They also had two additional screenshots including one of the too 90s for the 90s characters (a Valkyrie/scandanavian looking lady called Helga Grossbergen)

    Finalmente alguém conseguiu dumpar a ROM, saiu dia 01/01/2022 depois de quase 30 anos de cancelamento. procure no Google “Road Riot 4WD Mega Drive” Sega Retro. No site deles tem a ROM e vai baixar como “Road_Riot_4WD_(prototype)” e realmente ficou muito melhor que o do SNES. Vão lá e confiram.

    Well the Prototype Atari Lynx version is said to be fun in short doses the Atari Falcon version looks old hat for a 32-bit RISC based system and suffers from twitchy controls, so there are better than SNES versions available.

    But this looks more suited to the Mega CD hardware than stock MD.

    As of 01/01/2022 the MD prototype is found at the site Hidden Palace. Much better than Snes version that have tiny cars and low fps in comparison.
    It looks like Cruis’n World as you race tracks around other countries.
    Clean voices and sense of speed.
