Hyper Biker

Track and field BMX-style, the game consists of six race scenarios. In one you have to negotiate obstacles, another requires you to perform wheelies, then you graduate to more skillful tricks like the long jump and bunny hop. You can play against the computer or up to three friends.

Forward motion is accomplished by whacking the keyboard like a lunatic - beware! I decided I would rather waste a joystick than smash my precious C64 to pieces, but it stood up to the pounding quite well.

The graphics are very well done - witness the perspective on the scrolling screen - objects in the distance move past more slowly than those in the foreground. The music is also excellent. For once I didn't find myself reaching for the volume knob. Great entertainment.
