In one in their maximum positive releases so far, retro-fans Hamster have added Sun Electronics’ maze-racer Route 16 to their expansive Arcade Archives vary, with the ’80s arcade available lately on PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Released manner, manner, manner again in 1981, Route 16 has a collection of Formula 1-style automobiles sprint round simplistic mazes. There’s no end line, the objective is merely to gather as many sacks of money as conceivable. I love to assume that this used to be designed as a suave statement of the way the way forward for F-1 could be led by way of capitalism. But then, that is me achieving to be able to have extra to mention about this forgotten recreation.
Route 16 used to be sooner or later ported to the Famicom, and even the Arcadia 2001. I am not positive what different video video games characteristic Arcadia 2001 and the PlayStation 4 at the identical structure record, however I am pondering that is a undeniable uncommon prevalence. Rarity does now not at all times equate to worth, alternatively, and it is your name whether or not $8 is an even worth for this very fundamental recreation, given different releases available within the Arcade Archive assortment.
Route 16 is available lately on PS4 in Japan and on Nintendo Switch international.
