Toobin' is an Atari Games video game originally released as an arcade game in 1988 and is based on the recreational sport tubing. In the game, you play as the main characters Bif or Jet, guiding them through many winding rivers on an innertube.
The player competes in a river race against the computer or another player. The player's score increases by swishing the gates, hitting other characters with cans, collecting hidden letters to spell Toobin', and collecting treasures. Players try to avoid obstacles while pushing each other into them.
Power-ups allow players to carry multiple cans and combinations of gates increase a score multiplier.
The game has three different classes, each with five rivers, for a total of 15. The rivers in each class are as follows:
Colorado, Amazon, Okeefenokee, American and Argentum
Yukon, Styx, Left Bank, Cuprum and Nile
Jurassic, Black Forest, Rio Grande, Canals Of Mars and Nightmare
The game's playable characters are Bif and Jet. Whenever there is only one player in the game, there will be a computer-controlled opponent called Flotsam.
Toobin' involves Biff and Jet racing their way down the rapids of a river, riding on tires. You rotate your tyre left or right, and drift as the current sends you, making sure to avoid the banks of the river, and the dividing lines in the middle. Hazards include crocodiles, stray logs and branches, and fishermen - you are armed with a limited supply of tin cans to take care of these. There are gates to slide through on the way down - these give you a points bonus. Each level has a strict time limit to adhere to, although there's a kickin' party at the end if you succeed.
