Review
Blues BrothersSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Jake and Elwood Blues, spent a long time in prison and now they are out. They are both musicians and form a The Blues Brothers band and are in pursuit of their lost music equipment and ... fame. You control either Jake or Elwood and take him through 6 different levels trying to retrieve their stuff and in the end attend a concert. To do that, both brothers must first escape from prison, swim through the catacombs and fight their way at the big city's roads before they can start their concert! The game supports a two-player mode as well. You have to fight, walk, run, crawl, swim, duck and fly your way in all levels. There is no real apparent difference between the characters except of their looks and their unique funny idle moments. And the game is fun as well since you can use balloons to float and discover hidden areas, swim inside giant fish tanks, go through a maze of conveyor belts and a lot more to encounter including the bad guys like security guards, villains, dogs etc. Killing the "baddies" can be done by lifting and throwing wooden crates towards them. These crates can be found scattered around the levels. Collect 100 records or pick-up some cool looking shades and you'll win an extra life too! Blues Brothers is a classic multi-scrolling platform game, where you take down incoming foes and activate certain objects to progress. As long as you master the controls, Blues Brothers is a cool title to play and it keeps you coming back for more!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The PC (DOS) version looks nice and supports VGA or EGA graphics adapters. There is a lot of variety between levels and they all look cool though we can see up to 16 colors on screen, same as on the Atari ST version. The characters are well animated and funny. Each level has its own design, enemy sprites and other ambient details but the PC version runs in flip-screen mode (as the Atari ST) and this make the game hard to progress. The sound is great, supporting Soundblaster hardware and including all the original Blues Brothers' movie tunes.
