Climb into your riding leathers and Jam that crash helmet onto your head 'cos we are going open road racing with Super Cycle. The rules are simple, just stay on the large and very powerful bike long enough to complete a course. Each race is held in different locations some in the desert, others in the city and there is even one course where you can see Cape Canaveral in the distance. As with most race games time is the enemy, a set limit is allowed to complete the course - fail to beat it and it's the end of the race. At the beginning there's only the other riders to worry about, but as the game goes on ice, roadworks and oil slicks etc all add to the challenge of reaching the finishing line in one piece. A fairly nice looking game, spoilt by being too easy with lousy collision detection.
