Although my laptop splutters a bit trying to run this game - it is so much fun !
Itís a strange mash of Outrunners and Suoer Hang On whilst the presentation is Mortal Kombat mixed with Monty Python.
With 21 different routes the replay ability is high and seeing what bonkers idea they come up with for each leg is addicting. I particularly like Indonesia where a mini shark attaches itself to your head for a few seconds.

Anyone else enjoy this ? Would have been right at home on Saturn.

All I remember from it is the kickass remix of the Hang-On theme.

Whilst the game is playable at a decent frame rate, my laptop is struggling with the sound. Itís all jancked up. Probably a combination of the emulation being imperfect and my laptop not having enough horsepower to run it properly. Still a good time though.

Iíve managed to completed all the east and west routes, just need to do the USA ones now. Always fun to see what they dream up for each country or state. Unfortunately the end sequence is the same for each route, it only changes depending on the rider. I can complete it with Grasshopper and Lightning but struggle with the bigger vehicles. Everytime I complete a route itís with only a second or two to spare. As itís a arcade game itís designed reasonably tight for time but doable with practice.
