Sega‘s Super Hang-On was a full-sized bike arcade machine, that you sat on, and rocked side to side to steer the bike. It was first released into arcades in 1987 and this 16-bit conversion followed a year later in 1988.
Cynics doubted anyone could make it into a credible home version, but developer Software Studios proved everyone wrong by producing a superb conversion for the ST.
Playable either with a joystick or with a mouse, Super Hang-On is a non-stop blast through superfast road courses. It’s a time trial basically. You race to the next checkpoint to extend your time.
Colourful, fast, playable are words I would use to describe the Atari ST version of Super Hang-On. Super Hang-On is not about realism, it’s about speed… shaving seconds off lap times and keeping your race alive.
