The Blues Brothers is a game based on the band of the same name. The game was released for home computers and ported over to the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The object of the game is to evade police in order to make it to a rock and roll show. The characters have the ability to pick up objects and either put them down to stand on them, or throw them at enemies. Each level is a variation on the jumping theme, with the characters finding a necessary attribute (e.g. a guitar) at the end. The fourth and final level ends on-stage.

The game can be played by with two players simultaneously, but the scrolling screen only focuses on the first.
