The Highway Encounter remake by Andrew Nixon, though extremely faithful is not without a problem or two. Control configuration is rather erratic, and certain options are not available although everything else worked pretty well. The objective of the game is basically to clear a path for your fellow robotic colleagues, so that they may reach the end of a long highway and blow up an alien mothership.

Definitely anyone who fondly remember the original for it's unique gameplay should get this right away.

Unfortunately, the fellow robots easily got stuck in the barrels at the start of the game - twice. And my own robot got stuck on a wall. I like games with isometric perspective, but until this one hasn't some issues fixed, it not very fun to play. I'll gladly wait a final version, however.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the comments. Next week I will spend some time trying to iron out those bugs. To be honest due to the time limit I didnt get all the bugs sorted out. However with your feedback I know which issues I need to fix, and rest assured they will be fixed.

Thanks again,


Andrew
