Anybody know if there's a common ancestor (or who stole from who )?

I think Trailblazer (Atari XE/XL) was first (1986):

There was a game on Atari ST I had where you rolled along this tiled road in the middle of space. It appeared like you were rolling on the inside of a large ring. you could have two players and you had guns. I think it was called road wars? Is that the one? I guess it came out on Amiga too.

Indeed it is, there is a PD version which I mentioned in another thread, check the screenshot in this post to see if it's the one you're after.

http://hol.abime.net/4450 love the tune of this one, if I remember correctly. It was among the first games I played.

Can't imagine it's that one though, given it doesn't have the "pseudo-3D view" and stuff.

(I remember that game, too. Haven't played it for years.)

Mmm. didn't bother with reading the description , it's a bouncing ball so I posted it as it's the one I remember most.

Hmm, you probably won't get very far with these sort of threads if you don't read the description properly

Well, actually, me posting it was also cause Kada is Swedish aswell, and this game was played mostly by us swedes I reckon , very common game in Sweden for some reason, all Amiga buddies I knew played it , so posted it for that reason aswell (having in mind maybe it could be that game anyway) .. just didn't say it like that incase I was wrong ..

I really like this game. Mostly because of the music.

Anyone knows how many levels this game have? I played to level 10 now and its super difficult already.

I've tried to read the files with a hexeditor but no luck.
