Race To The Finish

This wild race through the perils of diverse and rough terrain will make you grip your Control Pad while you search for the next obstacle.

Your objective is to drive your fastest, pass as many speeding cars and motorcyclists as possible, take the jumps without losing speed and do as little damage to your bike as possible. Think you can handle it?

You'll be given five separate scenes which will introduce you to every pitfall known to Mother Nature. If you survive them, you'll be able to repeat each scene once more for a total of ten scenes in all.

So start your engine, you're in the fast lane now.

How To Handle Your Machine

Before you begin playing, orient yourself with movements and functions each button is geared to prompt. You'll have to use hand-to-eye coordination in order to speed quickly ahead and avoid all the obstacles. And remember, you'll do much better with practice.

Individual Functions:

Each button on your Control Pad will prompt its own critical moves.

Your Directional Button (D-Button):

Button 1:

Button 2:

Now that you're familiar with the basics, here's the setup for sophisticated driving techniques.

Moving Left to Right:

When you need quick moves out of tight places, you need to use your D-Button to guide your bike in the desired direction.


To accelerate, you must hold Button 2 down at all times.


Braking can be overused and cost you important seconds in the race. You need to use a light hand when applying Button 1.


The main objective to jumping blocks is not to lose speed and gain the greatest distance.

Take Control

Before you actually start the race, the following will guide you through game rules and requirements.

Time Limit:

You are allowed a specific amount of time to complete each race sequence. Should you fail to meet this time requirement, you will be disqualified and the game is over.

Since the race scenes are repeated following the finish of race scene 5, they will be referred to as Scenes 1-5, 6-10 and when they overlap, Scene 1 & 6, 2 & 7, etc..


There are several types of obstacles presented off-road and on-track in this course. When your bike makes contact with any of them, it will be reflected in damage points which will increase from scene to scene. This will be reviewed at the end of every scene. Once your damage points exceed 98, your screen time will pass twice as fast as normal.

The following charts your damage intake:

Rocks, small piecesSpeed decrease+ 4
Sinking in waterDead stop+ 8
Large obstacles (cars, bikes, trees, ruins, stones, etc.)Crash/Crack-up+ 10
Cloud of dustSpeed decrease0

Evaluation Screen:

When you finish a race, the screen will evaluate your performance and award you skill points as well as damage points. Your skill points are based on how many cars and bikes you pass during each individual scene.

The following will be reviewed:

After the 10th scene, the ' Total ' message will start blinking to notify you that the game is over.

Tune-Up Screen:

Once you've reviewed your evaluation screen, you'll be able to tune-up your bike in the next screen.

Here you can exchange points that have been earned in passing for parts that will improve the performance of your bike.

Choosing parts follows these moves:

Below is an outline of the benefits given and the points needed for each part or condition.

Tire- 8
Tool Kit- 10
First Aid Kit- 12
Health Drink- 16
Poly-tank (reserve)- 18
Battery- 24
Mechanic- 30
Key- 50

When you choose any item, you will automatically lose the stated amount of damage points.

Decide which item you need, then choose it. There is no fixed order for choosing an item.

Now Make Your Move

The only part of the game left is to play. So read the following and then go for it.


After you're positioned at the Starting Line, the countdown will immediately start.

The counting will begin at 3 and end at 0, start pressing Button 2 to rev your engine and leave the lineup.

Treacherous Race Scenes:

There are five race scenes in all which you'll be able to repeat. The second time around they will be more demanding and quicker. So practice well in the first set and you may be able to survive the grueling driving in the second.

Scene 1 : A Country Track

This scene will open on a groomed track in the country. You'll be racing against cars and the obstacles are obvious. Watch out for:

Scene 2: The Ruins.

Here you'll find yourself in a wasteland of stone jumps and ruins where you can really knock yourself up. You'll be racing against bikes in an unstructured terrain with no track. Watch out for:

Scene 3 : The Red Desert.

This place is as hostile as any desert can be. You're racing against cars in another unstructured terrain with no track. The land is very hard on your bike, so stay in the open red area away from obstacles. Look out for:

Scene 4: Marshland.

This is 90% water and 10% track. You'll wish you were a fish because this scene is tough to stay on dry land. And when you hit the water, you sink. Be careful and drive well. Watch out for:

Scene 5 : Mountain Roads."

Welcome to the hardest and last scene. You're competing with cars and the scene is wide open, unstructured, rough and relentless. Watch out for:

Best Time:

The best time will automatically replace the old time when you've won the game and made it through all ten races.

This time will appear at the end of the game and remain in the game until a new time is achieved, just like a real arcade game.
