Sit on 750cc of screaming motorcycle. It’s a race against the clock and against the other motorcycles. Accelerate up through the gears, lean into the corners and steer your way through the pack. The further you go, the more points you get. The road conditions and obstacles change. Look out for bonus flags and race to the top of that scoreboard.
Open road racing - wheel to wheel - pistons screaming and rubber burning. That’s the challenge of SUPER CYCLE. Before you begin, choose your machine and your leathers. Choose carefully, there’s an ordeal ahead.
You and your machine will be pushed to the max by the course, the other competitors, and the relentless clock.
You must complete each of the race courses within a time limit, in order to continue. Crash and you lose valuable seconds. Each of the more than seven courses poses unique challenges - water on the road, ice, road barricades and other dangerous obstacles. When you see a road sign that means slippery when wet, you better listen.
There’s day and night courses, city and country, hills and mountains, desert courses and streaking through the sunlight next to Cape Canaveral.
Accelerate up through the gears, jockey for position and bump the other riders. Go for top speed, but try not to go out of control. Good luck. Your reflexes better be as sharp as the turns up ahead.
You must complete each race course within the specified time, in order to go on to the next course. Watch out for the other riders - you can bump them and they can bump you. Steer through the pack, and avoid road obstacles- crashing eats up valuable time. Complete all the courses at one of the difficulty levels and you get a checkered flag next to your name on the racing scoreboard.
Push UP/forward on the joystick to accelerate, and pull DOWN/back to slow down.
Push LEFT or RIGHT with the joystick to steer.
There are three gears. To gear up, push the joystick UP/forward and press the FIRE button. With the joystick centred, simply press the FIRE button to gear down.
The three lights in the centre of the dash indicate what gear you’re in. The top light is the highest gear. The bottom light is the lowest gear. The light is coloured yellow for the gear you’re in.
Each course has a set time limit. The bottom of your dash shows your elapsed time, and your total points. The more distance you cover, the more points you accumulate.
Watch out for road conditions and unusual obstacles. You never know what you’re going to find out there. Lamp posts, oil slicks, even road pylons that narrow the course to a single lane. Watch for special bonus flags - hit those for extra points and time.
Time it just right, cut and accelerate with split second precision, and you could end up on top. On top of the racing scoreboard!
