Banzai Run Tutorial
PAPA and Bowen Kerins bring us this Banzai Run tutorial.
Banzai Run was designed by Pat Lawlor and it was his very first game. Even if you don’t know that name, you probably know his games – he also designed Addams Family, Twilight Zone, Fun House, Road Show and many others.
Regrettably, he designed Roller Coaster Tycoon. I guess they can’t all be winners.
Anyway, Banzai Run is a very unique game with a double playfield. This obviously cost a ton of money to build and it’s pretty amazing that they took the risk with a then-novice designer. Obviously they bet on the right guy and Pat Lawlor is considered to be one of the best designers ever.
