War on Wheels is a cancelled 1991 roller skating game developed by Sculptured Software and published by Jaleco USA. The game would had a two players mode, and like Road Rash, it was possible to beat up your opponents. The game was cancelled because it got bad reviews on video game magazines[1].

On June 2nd, 2006, Jason Wilson, aka DreamTR (who previously owned the prototypes of Socks the Cat and the cancelled English release of Metal Jack), found a prototype of War on Wheels[2] and he would later release game as a cart release in 2010.[3]

At the end of 2013, a ROM of the game was leaked online and can be found fairly easily.
