Review of Hang On (ハングオン) by CVG magazine
Overall rating 83%
Hang On is head to head, high speed action between your motorcycle, the Fearless 4, and the equally powerful Sizzler 7. And it comes free when you buty the Sega System.
The Hang On technique enables you to hang on through really tricky curves at high speeds.
The bikes race over three levels each consisting of eight courses. Each course has five stages.
The Fearless 4 has three gears — low, second and high. Moving the joystick up and down selects the gear. It's also used to control the hike. The control pad's two buttons are used a brake and accelerator.
Each stage must be completed within a 60 second time limit. If you managed to clear the stage with time to spare the extra seconds are added to the next stage. The five stages of a course are circuit, seaside, monument valley, city night, circuit and finish line. If you manage to complete the eight courses in level three, you start all over again. But this time the time limits are cut.
Each course is four kilometres long. The distance remaining is displayed at the top right-hand corner of the screen.
The points scoring is based on three elements – overall speed, the higher it is the more points; passing the Sizzler gets 300 and for every second under time limit earns 1,000 points.
I thought Hang On would just be the bike version of World Grand Prix. I was wrong.
Speed merchants who fancy a head to head challenge against the clock go for Hang On.
