This is a playthrough of Rollergames, Konami's 1990 side-scrolling beat 'em up for the NES.

This game was loosely based on the US television series of the same name, with the emphasis being very much on "loosely". I've never seen the TV version of Rollergames, but I seriously doubt it involved what we see here, namely Rollerskating gangs rampaging through suburbia, beating each other upside the head.

The plot (such as it is) revolves around rogue teams of Rollergames participants kindnapping the head of the company, leaving the "good guy" teams to work together to rescue him. The player takes control of the team of their choice and skates, jumps and fights, fights, fights their way through a myriad of different platform-based levels.

The beat 'em up element of the game is pretty basic; repeated jump-kicking will make quick work of any adversary you face. The main challenge here is the requirement for precise platform-jumping mixed with the inevitable rollerskate-related inertia issues. Seriously guys, get some comfy, flat shoes for the next time something like this happens!

This section of the NES Rollergames playthrough covers levels one through four. Enjoy.
