Rolling RonnySTORY / GAMEPLAY
Take Rolling Ronny a skillful roller-skate that looks pretty much like Ronald McDonald and roll your way through nine levels of park lands, city streets, office complexes and even underground sewers to your final destination at the other side of the town. Ronny has to collect coins by running errands for the inhabitants of this weird and wonderful-looking town, to earn enough money and buy a bus ticket to the next part of this barmy game. On the majority of the levels you'll find a shop that will sell most of the objects found in the game but be careful not to spend too much though, as you won't be able to afford the bus fare home! Rolling Ronny plays like a classic side scrolling platform game where you have to jump over obstacles and gaps, shoot or evade enemy sprites and collect coins and power-ups, so there's nothing new here. Among the items you collect, some power-ups may help you jump higher, increase energy or even kill multiple enemies in one shot.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The DOS version supports VGA graphics hardware. This version is quite colorful, with comparably more colors on-screen than the Amiga and Atari ST versions, whilst the sprites' animation is quite fast, combined with pretty smooth background scrolling! The sound here is nice, featuring a few cute tunes during gameplay along with limited, but adequate, sound effects.
