Motorcycle fans, strap on your helmets! Biker Mice From Mars has all the elements of a good racing game.

Let's Rock and Ride!

This game is much like the recent Street Racer -- you play as one of the main characters, each with their own vehicle and weapon. The vehicles range from a hovercraft to a bike that looks like a bug.

In the Main Race, you compete in rounds against computer-controlled characters on increasingly difficult tracks. Some tracks are simple squares with no obstacles, while others offer hairpin curves, jumps, and rough terrain.

ProTip: Landing a jump on both wheels prevents you from spinning out

The Battle Race is nearly identical to the Main Race. You cruise the same tracks, but weapons help you battle for a prize-winning finish. The weapons are easy to use, and your bikes handle smoothly through all the races.

The bright colorful backgrounds feature cityscapes, islands vistas, and sewer views. Although the large sprites can sometimes be hard to tell apart, the graphics are generally strong. The sounds vary: There aren't many voices (other than the occasional "Let's rock... and ride!"), but the sound effects (especially the explosions) and music are both good.

Konami included all the elements of a fun racing game in this game: good game play, cool characters, easy control, and variety. The Biker Mice will be taking the checkered flag back to Mars!

  • Pop a wheelie over water and rough terrain so you don't slow down.
  • Be careful when using the nitro or you'll end up meeting a wall.

The Biker Mice are a whole new breed of spaced-out mammals. Throttle, Vinnie, and Modo's home planet was devastated by the fish-faced Plutarkians. The rodents ran for cover on Earth, and now the Plutarkians have followed. In this racin' game with 3D graphics, you ride as one of the Biker Mice or one of the bad guys. Each racer has different skills and weapons. You can upgrade your bike as you go and race the CPU or a friend in two-player head-to-head action.

Biker Mice from Mars is a game created by Rick Ungar, following the story from the science fiction animated series that began airing in 1993 in the United States and lasted for three seasons before it was cancelled. The game was published for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994 and was created by Konami.

The players take control of Throttle, Modo or Vinie and have to defeat space enemies such as enemies Lawrence Limburger, Dr. Karkunkle and Grease Pit in motorcycle races on different tracks.

The graphics of the game were decent, although lots of other SNES games featured better visuals. Tropical islands and underground sewers can be found in the game and each area has its own specific look that keeps the game fresh throughout the wild rides. The game is presented in a 3/4 style viewpoint, so mode-7 is not used, but this keeps the game look smooth as it scrolls along. The graphics are definitely not cutting edge, but the theme of the game comes along just OK.

There are three basically modes of play. The main race is when the player races against other bikers in order to earn prize money and purchase upgrades for the motorcycle. This allows the player to work his way up the ranks, increase his skills and upgrade the bike, purchase better weapons and compete all the bikers in the game. This is probably the most fun mode.

The second one is battle mode, where the main player takes the other players in an all-out shoot-fest. This makes the game more fun if multiple players are competing in the same time.

The last one if practice mode, which is basically the chance to practice many tracks of the game without any other riders to be there and make it difficult for you. However, the tracks are not very difficult and players shouldn’t need too much practice. The gameplay does not introduce new features, but does a good enough job.

The music in the game is insane, almost as the visual surroundings. The techno-rock sounds do a good job when keeping the up-tempo of the game. Though the voice acting in the game is a little bit overdone, it fits very well in this installment, just like everything else. There could be a bit more variety, because after few hours of playing the music starts to sound familiar, but this is the only gripe.

7

The game was fun back when released, although received some bad reviews as well. GameSpot users rated the installment with 8.0, while the critics were harsher and considered the release worthy of only a 6.7 out of 10.

Biker Mice From Mars is a Super Nintendo Entertainment System racing game very similar to Rock 'n Roll Racing, based on the cartoon of the same name. The game was made in 1994 by Konami. The object is to defeat space aliens in a series of motorcycle races. The winner gets the trophy and the losers have to start again.

There's also a two-player mode that lets you play the main race with a friend or compete in a one on one race.
