New Red Parsley Post - Back in the mid-90's, many Saturn owners had been calling for a 3D platform game while some PlayStation owners insisted it couldn't even handle one. Perhaps this Japanese example could've satisfied both sets of fans... if they'd known about it. Find out more here :)

I got to meet one of my childhood legends today - Bob Wakelin. He was responsible for dozens of amazing game covers in the 80s / 90s. He signed my copy of Rainbow Islands which is my all time favourite cover art!

Well what can one say about this forgotten classic? OK well firstly it is indeed a forgotten classic as I only just remembered it a few days ago! I saw a picture and was like...holy gravy stains! I remember that!

Secondly and most importantly, yes it was pretty much 'Super Hang-On' but with a dirt bike. You only have to look at it to see this. The game played almost identically to Super Hang-On (how could it not do?). You simply race from checkpoint to checkpoint, through five stages. The main difference being its cross-country, in the dirt, and you can jump when you hit logs.

The game was fast and furious with lots of sliding around corners. Your biker arching his leg out into the dirt as he thundered into those tight turns. Then when hitting a log the biker is almost flung off the bike and over the handle bars. Twas quite thrilling.

What made the game even more thrilling was the dirt bike cabinet, much the same as the Super Hang-On motorbike cabinet (it was the same). With this one you could pull up on the handle bars to do a wheelie!

Cabinets like this always added more fun to the experience. They made your arcade memories stand out, but at the same time dulled down your home console version experiences because they were never the same without the cabinet.

Not much to say really, its business as usual for Sega with this one. Sure its a bit of a clone game, a bit of a cheap and cheeky move from Sega all things considered. But at the end of the day its still a damn good game with a high frame rate, great visuals, great sound, and another top-notch super scaling pseudo 3D experience.
