GAME DESCRIPTION

This fast-moving game puts you in control of a thundering locomotive. You must direct the locomotive down the track and pick up the passengers along the way. In doing so, you must avoid a deadly runaway train that is out to demolish your locomotive!

Can you stay on the track and score?

FORMER VAPORWARE

Side Trak CabinetColeco was infamous for its vaporware offerings. These games were advertised but never published. It is not known whether the games' printed screen shots were from actual prototypes or were merely pre-development illustrations.
The ColecoVision's box itself bears several examples of unreleased titles, among them Tunnels & Trolls, Chess Challenger, Side Trak, Rip Cord, Horse Racing, and Mr. Turtle.

Side Trak was finally programmed by Russ Kumro. He took inspiration from Exidy’s arcade game of 1979 and from the illustration screen of Coleco’s catalogue.
The game was released by Collectorvision in 2012. Note that music and sound effects were made by Daniel Bienvenu.
