Astro Fang: Super Machine (アストロ・ファング, Asutoro Fangu)[4] is a Family Computer video game that was released for an exclusively Japanese market in 1990.


Somewhere in the galaxy lies the planet RS-121 – a desolate planet that has suffered terrible disasters which made life impossible.[5]

Only one construction still remains on the planet – a highway called the Black Line.[5] It is said than an ancient legend is somehow connected to this highway.[5] Players must knock enemies off the road by using missiles before they can knock him off the same highway.[5] Automobile repair shops can be found where cars can be repaired and re-supplied with much-needed weapons.[5] The playable vehicle resembles a 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 while the unplayable enemy vehicles resemble dune buggies.[6][7]

The game has an infinite amount of continues and a meter appears on the bottom left-hand side of the screen to remind how close the player is to achieving the goal.[8]
