CATALOG DESCRIPTION (January 1983, Consumer Electronics Show)

The wackiest thing to happen to driving since rush hour! You're racing down the highway, but there's a traffic jam up ahead. You can bump the cars out of the way, or jump them to score points. But slow drivers aren't the only hazards on the road! You must jump over water and debris dropped in your path by dumptrucks. Beware of the reckless driver!

DEVELOPMENT HISTORY

Loco-Motion was the Atari 2600 version of the Data East arcade game, previously released for the Intellivision.

BUG: All vehicles except yours will sometimes float across barriers when entering the roadways.

BUG: Segments of a vehicle, and sometimes the entire vehicle, can disappear for a split second and then reappear.

FUN FACT: The game package lists the credits on the back - a concession made to the programmers alte in 1983. Masters of the Universe: The Power of He-Man is the only other M Network Atari game to list credits on the package.
