Mountain Bike Racer
MOUNTAIN BIKE RACER is another installment in the genre of bike stunt games. Here you don’t have
a motorbike, you have a mountain bike.
You have 12 different levels each having a different set of obstacles which you must scale to win
the level. To help you do that, there is a vast array of add-ons to buy in the shop. These will help
fine-tune your bike against these obstacles.
The game's title screen gives you 7 choices. The first is “Circuit” which allows you to view the
12 levels and understand the terrain. Secondly, you have “Equipment” for checking information about
your bike and browsing through the various add-ons that can boost its performance.
The third is “Records” which shows you information about high scores and gameplay. “General” is the
fourth option for editing sound and gameplay. In the fifth option, you have “Test” which allows you
to practice. After that practice, you can “Start” the game using the sixth option.
And finally, the seventh option “Redefine” allows you to set your controls.
Mountain Bike Racer starts with the first simple stage consisting of basic obstacles to show players
what the game is like before increasing the difficulty with more complex obstacles. This game was
released in 1990 but the graphics aptly belongs within the category of 80’s games. The player's
perspective is two-dimensional and everything is simple and straightforward.
