Determination, speed, and dexterity are the key assets needed to
complete TRAILBLAZER successfully.
Thundering into the unknown at breakneck speed, are you agile
enough to negotiate the perils? Roll left and right to avoid the
cracks but be careful not to fall off the edge of the path as you
go. Be sure to identify and avoid the squares which will either
speed you up or make you jump automatically. Keep a careful eye
on the clock as the more time you have left at the end of each
level, the more bonus time you will be awarded.
THE AIM OF THE GAME
The aim of the game is to guide the ball down each of 21 courses
as quickly as possible, whilst avoiding the holes and other
obstacles. Each course has its own time limit. Differently
shaded squares have different effects.
1 PLAYER ARCADE - You are limited to seven jumps per course, each has a time limit but any remaining time is carried over to the next course. Complete as many as possible.
2 PLAYER ARCADE - As one player but with both players racing simultaneously. You can knock each other off if you meet.
1 PLAYER TRIAL - Practice on any course with a 99 second time limit.
2 PLAYER MATCH - Pick any three courses and race against another player with a 99 second limit on each course.
PLAYER VS ROBOT - As two player match but with a computer opponent, as in the arcade option you can knock each other off course.
10 points per square (100 if on Warp) plus a bonus for time remaining on completing a course.
1000 points per round on bonus game, bonus game every three normal levels.
