You play the part of Fred MacMuscle, the world's greatest
stuntman. At least that is what it says on your publicity.
The truth is just a little bit less romantic and exciting - you
have not worked in a film for over 2 years and are
beginning to get a little rusty. It also doesn't help that you
are down to your last few thousand in the bank.
Luckily for you, the new series of "Ricky Steel: Secret Agent" has just started filming in your area and you are asked if you will
handle some of the stunts needed for the film. This is your big chance to
become famous again. The only problem is that the film company expect
you to have your own insurance. Luckily they agree to pay you for each
stunt that you successfully complete so the more stunts you try the more
films you will be able to take part in. There are three exciting and dangerous
These are: (in no particular order)
Ricky Steel has been given the mission to rescue some American
soldiers who are still prisoners in Vietnam. The director has asked you to
fly a helicopter up the Kwan Yang river to find the Prison camp. The only
problem is that you must stay as low to the ground as possible, flying under bridges, avoiding anti-aircraft fire and dodging tall trees. The VC sent heat seeking missiles and their own helicopter to stop you and you have to avoid or shoot them down.
Ricky Steel is driving in his 200mph Ferrari towards the edge of the
Grand Canyon but he has not had time to assemble the Rolls Royce jet
engine that he will need to get safely across. As he drives closer and
closer to the edge the gang of terrorists have put all sorts of obstacles in
your way - oil barrels, piles of rocks, ramps to flip you over etc. Luckily
you have been fitted out with a missile launcher so that you can blast the
rocks etc out of the way. Your fellow agents will fly over in a helicopter to drop the parts of the jet to you. If you manage to run over them they will be added to the car. If, by the time you reach the edge of the canyon you do not have all the parts then it is all over for you.
A team of terrorists have taken hostages in a tower block and Ricky Steel must enter the building and rescue the innocent hostages. The
terrorists have set fire to the building and have planted bombs in some of
the rooms. You must find all of the bombs and drop them down the rubbish
chutes. This is done by running over them.
The bottom of the screen shows two numbers. One is your
money in the bank, the other is the amount of insurance
you have to pay to do the stunt. If you do not have
enough money for your insurance then you can try
one more time but if you fail then the Stuntman
Union will take away your licence.

Turbo Bike, renowned throughout the entire Galaxy, Lieutenant G. Irl
of the Immediate Operation Corps of the Korg Army, has been chosen
to fulfil a suicide mission; three "Elders" (Strange Cybernetic Beings)
are intercepting the provisions of the Colony with the help of an army of
robot-ships. They must be destroyed.
Aim Of The Game
Get through the different phases, avoid being destroyed by the robot-
ships and do away with the "Elder" that guards each of the phases.
The game is made up of three different phases, and each phase is
divided into several parts which will allow you to start at the end of the
last one you have completed if you are knocked down.
Phase 1: It takes place aboard a semi-abandoned Space Station. You
must cross through the labyrinth of tubes that make up the Station,
avoiding collision or falling through the gaps in the structure, which would
make you disappear into open space. Careful with the meteorites.
Phase 2: Cross over the huge, long bridge that joins the Space Station to
the surface of the planet. It is a very ancient and unsafe bridge. There are
parts that cave-in upon contact, so you have to ride very carefully.
Phase 3: The last of the Elders hides away in the desert. It is a calcimined
desert of scorching winds carrying a great amount of debris. Numerous
enemies lie hidden throughout.
You will encounter many enemy ships on your way. They all fly above
ground level, so you will not collide unless your motorcycle jumps at the
wrong time, but you will have to avoid their shots.
Lightweight, swift, specially designed to fly within the labyrinth of tubes.
Collision with them causes death. Many of them fall around the Space Station.
Sentinels that rotate about with quick and unpredictable movements.
They are small and move at a great speed.
Carried by the windstorms, their contact is lethal.
Prepared for combat, and specially designed for desert lands.
When you combat against the guardian Elder in each phase, observe the
energy indicator on the right. They will drop when you shoot him in his weak
spot with your laser.
Lives And Energy
You start out with 6 lives, and an extra one every 5000 points. The energy
marks on the left indicate the loss of a life every time you are shot.
Redefinable keys. If you use a joystick, in order to jump you must press
SPACE or whichever key you have defined.

After a hard days training with the freestyle team at the local dirt track, Phil "Pookie" Wheeler, unofficial BMX Ninja, whilst travelling home on his bike, a Blackfoot Falcon, was set upon by a rival team, the Diamond Backs,
whose leader is intent on gaining the ultimate street cred. Your title.
You must prove to yourself and your girlfriend that you are capable of
keeping your title. Should you fail in your task, you will not only lose
your title, you will lose your girlfriend (who wants to be seen with a loser
anyway?), and your dignity. Should you succeed, you will be rewarded by your girlfriend. Should you complete a certain number of areas, you will receive the ultimate reward from her. (We're not telling you what it is so find out yourself if you can.)
The game objective is to survive for as long as possible. To proceed to
the next location, you must dismount 8 BMX bikers. Ninja scooters and
Skateboarders do not count towards this total.
You must also avoid rocks thrown by other gang members. The scoring
is dependant on how you dismount your opponent.
There are 6 different locations in which you can battle. These are a
Miami Beach, a California sea front, the Dallas oil fields, New York City,
Times Square and Cape Canaveral.
