The Battle-Road is a vertical scrolling shooter racing arcade game released by Irem in 1984.

The game was an early open-ended vehicle combat game that featured branching paths and up to 32 possible routes.[2] The player controls a car that is armed with two different types of guns (frontal and side), and drives for a road full of other dangerous vehicles like cars, motorcycles, trucks, helicopters. There are also other kinds of obstacles on the road. There is more than one path, in the same style used in Outrun.
