No-one seems to realize it, but this was based on another arcade game which I can't remember which was viewed side-on where this character ran onto certain squares and jumped, etc, It had skateboards and coke-cans. Anyway, everyone loved this, but the public, not wanting to identify with a bouncing football, didn't. Within the next few months we saw loads of 'clones' of the game.
(Commodore Computing - 5/5) Any C-16 owner found without it will be laughed out of town.
(Commodore User - 9/10) - Trailblazer is absolutely amazing, colourful and extremely fast scrolling.
(Zzap 64 - 93%) - An excellent variation on the race game theme.
(Your C64 - 10/10) - Full speed ahead to your local computer shop and buy a copy.
(Computer Gamer - 18/20) - This deserves to be the biggest blockbuster of 1986.
