Last time we talked about the dominance of Sega in the arcades and while their biggest racing game, OutRun, was the one title that most people remember, they had another racing game that also stood out but rather than being on four wheels, this preferred a two-wheeled form of transport… Hang On.
Just like Bloodred Wyvern, this PSM title has taken it’s cue from the Sega classic and provided gamers with a massive 3D motorbike racer packed with challenging courses, a great soundtrack and most importantly a superb sense of speed that keeps the blood pumping from start to finish. Each race is set over a number of stages against the clock and each stage takes place on a themed area with night and day racing and different environments. While there are no on-track objects or any roadside scenery, there are numerous other bikers to contend with and the twists and turns of the track along with the variety in visual themes more than make up for this.
The difficulty curve is balanced perfectly offering several courses of increasing difficulty, each made up with more stages than the one before providing you with a racer that’s designed to last. And for a game that’s under a pound you simply can’t go wrong!
