Future Bike Simulator

Can you imagine a world without Motorcycles? A world without the likes of Barry Sheene and Randy Mamola? Well, you've just described the world of Future Bike.

With the banning of bikes, billionaire Finnius M. Houlder has invented his own replacements, and the roads to go with them — the Strip. On these private roads, without the usual trucks and holidaymakers to slow you down, you can reach dizzying speeds of up to 300mph, but there are hazards.

Racing through the city, desert, River rapids, Ice floes and Mountains, destroying all of the other road users will deposit a bag of money on the road for you to pick up. The more you pick up, the more you can spend in the shop on upgrading your bike and buying a mammoth armoury to get rid of the enemy.

There is also a handy radar to be had, allowing you to see just which areas to avoid. Watch out for mines as they appear before you; they hurt. As do the bombs thrown in your direction.

Future Bike is very playable with some nice sound effects thrown in for good measure. Well worth a look at.
