Badlands is a fun multi-player arcade race game, very much in the mould of the classic Super Sprint, except with a post-apocalyptic theme and with guns and missiles on the cars.
The guns do little more than slow down your opponents when shot. You can, however, buy missiles at the shop between levels and these are much more effective. Firing a missile will take out the lead car, losing it valuable time in the process.
Badlands was first released into arcades in 1989 by Atari Games and can accommodate up to three players at once. For that reason alone it is an excellent party game.
