(T = 1) (T = 2) Excitebike (main race) 1-)2-)3-)4-)5-)5 ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ | | | | | Challenge Race (preliminary race)1 2 3 4 5 Select 1 - 5 *Choose the challenge race from 1 to 5 that you wish to start with. *If you place third or better in the preliminary, you go to the main race of the same number. [Examples] *Preliminary race 3rd place -) Main race *Preliminary race 4th place -) Game Over *If you place third or better in the main race, you go to the next main race. [Examples] *Main Race 1 -) Main Race 2 -) Main Race 3 *Main Race 3 -) Main Race 4 -) Main Race 5 5 -------------------------------------------------------- *If you place in the main race of Track 5, you can race at track 5 over and over. The number of times you have raced at Track 5 is indicated at the lower right part of the screen (T = #). *If GAME OVER occurs at T = 2 or more, the time necessary to place third will not change unless you first go back to the game menu before playing the next game. *The 3RD indicated at the lower left part of the screen is the time necessary to place 3rd. *SELECTION A is a solo race run. In SELECTION B, motocross riders compete. *There are two types of motocross riders. One type runs normally and the other type peruses. if a pursuing motocross rider hits you from behind, he falls down. If you hit a motocross rider who is ahead of you from behind, your motocross rider falls down. *How long the fallen rider rolls depends on the speed he was going just before falling. If the rider falls on a hurdle, the rider rolls to the edge of the hurdle. If your rider falls, press the A button over and over quickly until you return to the race. *Holding the B button (Turbo button) down too long will overheat the engine. The engine temperature decreases when you pass you the cool zone ( )) mark). Engine condition is indicated by the TEMP meter in the lower central portion of the screen. *Speed drops if you run off the track or through mud. 6 ------------------------------------------------------------- Jumping *The distance of a jump is determined by the speed before jumping and the angle of the jump. Control this with the control pad. *If the bike lands squarely on both wheels, you can take off quickly. If you land unevenly, your bike will fall. {In the manual, there are some pictures that can't be printed in text. Here's what they describe, in my own words: for a high jump, press left. for a low jump, press right. DO NOT Press right going into the jump. DO NOT press left while sliding down the jump. DO press left going into the jump, and press right while sliding down the jump.} Wheelies *You can do a wheelie (raise the front wheel in the air) to get over small obstacles. {press left while going over the obstacle} 7 ---------------------------------------------------------- Winning time displays *When you pass the goal line on the first lap, the buzzer sounds and the lap time appears at the center of the screen. *The lap time necessary to place 3rd is displayed under 3RD at the bottom of the screen. *The best Time is displayed on the fence in the middle of the track for both the preliminary race and the main race. *The Best Time display will not disappear when you press the reset switch. It will only disappear when the power switch is turned off. Techniques --How to maintain high speeds-- *Try to stay on the track. *Avoid going through the mud. *Since the other riders are also trying to avoid the mud and the track edge, be extra careful when racing alongside another rider. *When jumping over a large obstacle, use the control pad to adjust your bike's landing angle correctly. This will prevent you from slowing down upon landing and help you to pick up speed easily. 8 ------------------------------------------------------------ *If you press the control pad to lift up the front in the middle of a jump, you can pick up height but not distance. On the other hand, if you press the control pad to lower the front you can jump lower and further. Use both of these skilfully. *Press the B button (Turbo button) just before starting off or in the front of an obstacle you want to dash. *You can use your back wheel to knock another rider down. *Make skillful use of the difference between buttons A and B. *Avoid overheating the engine by going through the cool zone ( )) mark). 4.
