crush3: MAME ROM Information.


Crush Roller (c) 1981 Kural Electric, Ltd.

Time to take up your paint brush and paint the town Red (or Green or Orange, or whatever color you happen to have on hand)! A pair of fish are out to stop you but you can roll over them at the overpass. There's other items that just try to mess up your paint job; you can run over these folks easily (if you catch them).


Main CPU : Z80 (@ 3.072 Mhz)

Sound Chips : Namco (@ 96 Khz)

Players : 2

Control : 4-way joystick


Released in October 1981.

This game is known in the U.S. as "Make Trax".

Another version of this game is known as "Korosuke Roller".

2 bootlegs are known as "Paint Roller" and "Magic Brush". Another bootleg was made by Sidam as "Crush Roller (Sidam [Torino, Italy, EUR])".

Giuseppe Fiorido of Italy holds the official record for this game with 2514100 points on June 27, 1984.


"Make Trax" has a protection chip, Crush Roller doesn't. The code between the two is nearly identical, except that everywhere the protection code is located, code has been replaced with a couple of bytes to return the correct value and several NOP instructions (which do absolutely nothing).


Painting floor : 10 points per unpainted or footprint/tiretrack/dropping messed segment.

Killing Fish : 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400 and the maximum 9000.

Each level starts with the lowest point scoring fish being increased by one. E.g. Level one starts at 50 points, level two with 100 points, and so on up to 9000

Capturing the creature/object messing up your paintwork : 1000 points.
