Introduction | Game Objective | Game Controls | Note | Loading


You have control of a mountain bike and your objective is to race over a series of hazardous obstacles with the intention of finishing with the fastest time. Your opponent can either be a friend or the computer.

Skilful use of the gears will help you over the mountains and speed over the ramps. You must also get off and carry your bike over certain obstacles e.g. potholes and wooden logs.

Game Objective

One or two players must race over a series of obstacles with the objective of finishing first or finishing with the fastest time, (the fastest time being the winner). If a one player game is selected, then the top biker is computer controlled, and you control the bottom biker.

Obstacles found in the game are:

Logs - these must be walked over.
Holes - these must also be walked over.
Rocks - either avoided by steering or by walking over them.
Swamps - slows you down.
Ramps - if you are riding, they will make you jump.
Mountains - you can ride up these but they will slow you down. If you stop on a mountain side you will have to lower your gears (minimum 2nd).

When the title page comes up, use a joystick in the nearest port to control arrow. Press fire to select icon.

Icons from left to right are: Weather conditions, course editor, Start the game and 1 or 2 players.
