Plot[edit]

The player drives a Battlesphere, an ovoid mobile weapon armed with a laser cannon and a protective shield. Battlespheres ensure the stability of the spaceways between the moons of the planet Armageddon by removing destructive debris. The magnetic side panels which keep the vehicles on the spaceways are malfunctioning and can not only delay but completely destroy a Battlesphere.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Roadwars is an arcade-like game which can be played with one or two players, and uses a joystick.[1]

Reception[edit]

In 1989, Dragon gave the game 3½ out of 5 stars.[1]
