This game is based on the short-lived TV show of the same name that ran from 1990 to 1991.


In the Japanese Version, during the game, there are some power-ups (the icons resemble the Rollergames logo) which will pop up on either the left or right side of the screen which can give the player certain abilities:

Red: Speeds up the Jetter (either a human or a CPU player)

Yellow: Allows the Jetter to do a temporary hurricane spin kick

Green: Temporarily freezes the opponents (including the jetter)

In addition to these powerups, if a human player collects 3 blue rollergames logos, that player can earn an extra life.

The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
