Overview

Super Hang-On is a motorcycle racing game released for a number of different systems and included on a number of different compilations. The home versions of the game include a new mode, titled "Original Mode," which allowed the player the ability to race for money and subsequently spend the money on various upgrades for their motorcycle.

There has been speculation over the idea that a new Super Hang-On game may be released that stems from Sega renewing the Super Hang-On trademark in April 2006, but this has yet to be confirmed nor denied.

Gameplay

Super Hang-On has three main functions to race past the traffic and navigate the turns of the course.

  • Accelerate: To gain speed.
  • Brake: To slow down.
  • Turbo: Once the racer achieves 280 km/h, the player can use turbo for an additional speed boost up to 324 km/h. The player can use turbo as long as they can as long as the maintain the minimum speed of 280km/h.

In the arcade, the player sat on a model of a motorcycle and used the handles to accelerate, the brake grip to brake, a button to use turbo, and tilt the motorcycle to turn left and right.

The player starts a stage with an certain amount of time. To continue racing, the player must clear a stage before time expires. The player's game ends when the timer hits zero or when he clears all the stages on the course.

Super Hang-On offers four courses of varying difficulty and number of stages for players to race on.

  • Africa: Beginner, 6 Stages
  • Asia: Junior, 10 Stages
  • Americas: Senior, 14 Stages
  • Europe: Expert, 18 Stages
