Back Track is a first-person shooter that was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2001 and Windows PC in late 1990s. It is notable for being the first 3-D shooter to be released on the Game Boy Advance (along with DOOM), however it was quickly overtaken by such competitors as Ecks vs. Sever.

Story[edit | edit source]

Domingoaniax, an evil alien, has built up a rather large invasion force on the dark side of the moon. You assume the role of special agent Jim Track, and your job is to rescue the 110 kidnapped humans and blast Domingo's droid army to bits.

Game Boy Advance version[edit | edit source]

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

BackTrack's multiplayer mode has six deathmatch arenas, each playable as a standard 20-point deathmatch or as a 4-point round-robin. Both modes support up to four players via a link cable.

Reception[edit | edit source]

IGN praised the game for its solid framerate, but noted that the story at times "Doesn't work", and that the humor was "groan-worthy". The game was panned in the press for being mediocre in comparison with other FPS games released around the same time. It has an average rating of 56% on GameRankings.
