Toobin' is an Atari Games video game originally released as an arcade game in 1988 and is based on the recreational sport tubing. It was later ported to systems such as NES, Commodore Amiga, Commodore 64, MSX, and Game Boy Color. In the game, you play as the main characters Bif or Jet, guiding them through many winding rivers on an innertube. The game was included as part of Midway Arcade Treasures and Arcade Party Pak, where it was given a remixed soundtrack. It was also included in the 2012 compilation Midway Arcade Origins. The game is one of the 23 arcade games that are included with the Midway Arcade Level Pack for Lego Dimensions, unlocked by using the hidden Arcade Dock in the level 'Follow The Lego Brick Road'.
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:
1. Colorado, Amazon, Okeefenokee, American and Argentum
2. Yukon, Styx, Left Bank, Cuprum and Nile
3. Jurassic, Black Forest, Rio Grande, Canals Of Mars and Nightmare
