Tune-up

The game is a loose interpretation of the arcade game Enduro Racer. It is a racing game played from an oblique perspective similar to Paperboy as opposed to the lower third-person perspective and sprite scaling of the arcade original. The player progresses through ten tracks (only five unique tracks in the Western releases, which repeat after they have been completed). The bike is steered with Left and Right. It does a wheelie with Down. It accelerates with 2 and brakes with 1.

Tracks are filled with obstacles, such as oil spills that slow the player down and ramps that launch the bike into the air. To launch off a ramp with the most speed and distance, the player must approach it with a wheelie and switch to a neutral position (not holding in any direction) at the top of the ramp. Hitting a ramp in the wrong position instead slows the player.

Each track must be completed within a time limit. The player's bike can be destroyed by colliding with obstacles or other racers. It respawns but costs the player time. Any time that the player has remaining at the end of the race is added to the start of the next race (up to a maximum of 99 seconds). The game ends if the player runs out of time in a race.

At the end of each race, the player is awarded points based on how many other racers the player passed in the race. These points can be spent on bike upgrades that improve acceleration, handling, and other characteristics. The player's bike gains damage points from obstacles in the game; if it reaches 98 damage points, the player is penalized with time. The player can purchase items that reduce the damage points.

History

Legacy

This version of Enduro Racer was released for the Wii's Virtual Console service in 2008.

Versions

The game was significantly cut down for the Western release in order to fit the game onto a cheaper 128 kB ROM as opposed to the original 256 kB Japanese version. Five of the original ten courses were cut, with the five remaining courses now having to be played twice. It is also missing the post-game map that charts the player's progress and the dirt bike image on the title screen. Captain Silver received a similar fate for its US release.
