Road Worker is a game where you have to fix a series of neglected roads in order for a van to make it from one end to the other. It's a decent game concept, but it's completely ruined by Nice Code's complete inability to put decent music in their games.

Unused Graphics

Early Final
Road Worker-earlytruckfront.png Road Worker-finaltruckfront.png

An early sprite of the front of the van, which shows that it was originally meant to be a car.

Road Worker-earlytruckback.png

An duplicate sprite of the back of the van. Aside from being positioned slightly differently, it's identical to the used version.

Road Worker-player12.png

These letters would have been used along with the P, E, and R from the PRESS START BUTTON message to spell out "PLAYER 1" and "PLAYER 2" options. As Road Worker is a one-player game, these letters go unused.

Road Worker-balloons.png

Balloons, present with the title screen graphics.

Road Worker-something.png

Some lines with an unknown purpose.

Developer Credits

Road Worker-devcreditscreen.png

As with many Nice Code games, pressing Up, Down, Up, Left, Right, Left, B on the title screen will briefly display a credits screen. Nature Color Game is one of several aliases used by Nice Code, and PJ most likely refers to the Power Joy series of Famiclones which many Nice Code games have been released on.

Road Man


An alternate VT02 version of this game exists which changes some of the title screen graphics but is otherwise identical.
