Arcade Demo

The Speed Rumbler, known as Rush & Crash (ラッシュ アンド クラッシュ) in Japan, is a 1986 Japanese arcade game that was released in North America a bit later the same year. A port is included in Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

Plot Edit

In 21st-Century America, a gang collectively known as "Zapper" have taken Super Joe's family and friends hostage, and the player has 24 hours to set them free. The player must command an armored vehicle outfitted with guns, blasting his/her way through the enemy while on the rescue mission. If the vehicle takes too much damage, Joe can hop out and continue the fight on foot.

Trivia Edit

  • Although The Speed Rumbler features a hero named Super Joe, the game has nothing to do with Commando or the Bionic Commando series.
    • In addition, The Speed Rumbler is Capcom's first game ever to mention the name Super Joe. However, according to the Capcom 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia by DK Books[citation needed], the connection between the Super Joes of the other games "was likely fabricated by the localization team; it's hard to believe that the developers intended for all three games to star the same guy, as The Speed Rumbler is a sci-fi game that appears to take place several decades after Commando".

Credits Edit

The Speed Rumbler, like many other games during this era of gaming, credited its staff in its default Score Ranking Table, which is as follows:
