Video Game Ad of the Day: Skitchin’

Skitchin
Skitchin’ is one of my favourite games on the Mega Drive. It’s technically quite similar to Road Rash (although the team behind the game mostly worked on NHL games), but players are racing on rollerblades and using traffic to hitch a lift (or skitch) and propel themselves towards the finish line. Like Road Rash, races get quite violent as you attempt to take out your fellow competitors with an assortment of weapons.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Skitchin’


Skitchin’ is a kind-of reminagining of the Road Rash formula, replacing the bikes with in-line skates, just around the time in-line skating’s popularity was at its peak. Players compete in races across North America, and need to grab the backs of cars to propel themselves towards the finish line, while exchanging blows with other skaters and doing stunts.
