Wild driving, bullet dodging, explosions and barfights! That is what Drive 'em up is all about. Graphics and sounds have that genuine retro feeling.

Drive your DeLorean DMC and fight motorcycles and monster trucks on your way to the next barfight! This Spelgrim classic is sure to bring you back to the good old days!

The good aspects overshadow the bad ones--

...but the bad ones are too good to ignore.

*Addictive gameplay
*Good incorporation of humor
*Great retro graphics
*Top notch driving sequences

*No checkpoints or continues
^makes the game really fucking frustrating at times
*Bar sequences...don't feel like a bar. too short.
*Lack of proper dialogue, only lasts a brief amount of time
*Downgrading of weapons after being hit (like adding insult to injury)
*No invincibility after being hit (should be standard with all games like these)

Classic Gaming

Here we have a nice game based on the classic shoot the baddies and get the powerups and get the high score games. The early gaming graphics and sound effects made a great gaming experience. Great Work.
