Sega Master System / Mark III / Game Gear
Enduro Racer is a conversion of the arcade game in the true sense of the word. It is not a true on-the-bike view, instead Sega has opted for a diagonally scrolling Zaxxon type approach. Initially I was disappointed after seeing the conversion of Enduro Racer. I figured they could at least come close on play and presentation.
Enduro Racer is a ten stage game with five basic scenes (country track/ruins/red desert/marshland and mountain roads), which are repeated with a shorter time span to make up the ten - 60 secs first time round with 50 secs on tracks 6-10.
You can enhance your bike by passing as many cars and bikes as you can along the course, these are totted up at the end of each stage and you are placed in the tune up screen. Here you can choose from accelerator, handling, tyres, engine, suspension and items which decreases your damage ratina.
The play is fast and challenging and the only real problem, and it is a biggy, is that your ability to turn left and right is very sluggish. There is the ability to pick up better handling off the tune up screen.
