Superbike Challenge brings 1000cc motorbikes to life for a one or two player race. Unusually, the screen is split horizontally, with your action only ever using half of the screen. You can play a full season of races, or run at one of the 12 tracks as a stand-alone race (including Assen, Mugello, the old Hockenheim and Spa). A manual gearbox option and 3 skill levels ensure that you can't master the game immediately. Full information on your speed and revs, the race order and course layout are on screen at all times.
Superbike Challenge is an updated version of Grand Prix 500 cc, with a better menu and title screen and some different in-game graphics.
One of the first truly excellent motorcycle racing games, SuperBike Challenge features smooth CGA graphics, multiplayer options, a wide variety of tracks, and intuitive keyboard and joystick controls. The game's split-screen display in two-player mode is one of the best and first of its kind, and the track selection (12 worldwide) is excellent. You can opt for a practice lap before the competition to get a feel for the track, as well as toggle between three difficulty levels. Although the game has largely been superseded by newer, more graphically appealing titles, it is definitely worth the nostalgic play-through as a game that was once years ahead of its time.
