Notes

  • Unreleased game
    • Boots straight into gameplay. No opening movies, title screen, etc.
  • There is no audio
  • Opponent/other bike AI is very rudimentary, practically non-existent and frequently glitching up
    • For example, right at the start of gameplay, if you idle for a bit, the biker to your left will start sliding/shifting sideways ahead of you
  • On the controller, the action buttons seem to do nothing; Start pauses the game by simply freezing it (no menus, etc); the D-pad seems to do nothing
    • The motorbike is controlled by the analog stick. Forward to accelerate; backwards to brake; left/right to turn.
  • You can race through the city across the linear race track
