I'm not quite sure exactly how high this one would score in the 'rad' department, but it's certainly quite fun. It's another one of those sideways-scrolling jobettes, this time with you jumping aboard a skateboard or BMX and bombing it about for six minutes (two minutes per level, actually) trying to score as many points as possible. The more ramps you jump over the more you score, providing of course you don't collide with a lampost and 'wipe out' (ie fall off).

No doubt you'll soon get bored of racing about the same boring old tracks, so why not design a fiendishly hard one yourself on the built-in course editor? Hours of fun. The original track you play on is quite short, but there are two quarter pipes (spooky ramp things) at each side of each level so you can turn and keep going back and forth (if you see what I mean).

Ho hum. Nothing too exciting, I'm afraid, but we are in down the basment so I suppose you can t really expect too much. It's cheap, it's cheerful and it's fun. What more could you ask for?
