Toobin' Atari Games Corporation / Domark Ltd. 1989

Its time to put on your swimsuit, drop a coin down the coin slot and take a trip down the roaring rivers in the pursuit of treasures, spare patches for your tubes, as well as soda cans and six packs to fire at your enemies along the river.... Toobin' is a great conversion of Atari's arcade classic from 1988. Typical arcade fun, and the premise is quite original and could be considered a "sport" title due to the setting (water amusement park), and the fact that it's a race in disguise. As usual, the PC conversion is miles away from the arcade game technically, but gameplay is nearly the same. The major difference: Just one joystick - while the arcade game used two to control both arms of your Toob Dude individually. You rotate your tyre left or right, and drift as the current sends you, making sure to avoid the banks of the river, and the dividing lines in the middle. Hazards include crocodiles, stray logs and branches, and fishermen - you are armed with a limited supply of tin cans to take care of these. There are gates to slide through on the way down - these give you a points bonus. Each level has a strict time limit to adhere to, although there's a kickin' party at the end if you succeed.
