Moto Racer is an arcade style[2] motorcycle racing game developed by Delphine Software International and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation. It features both dirt and street bikes, and a variety of tracks.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

The four tracks always available are Speed Bay, West Way, Snow Ride, and Dirt Arena. Additional tracks can be unlocked by winning races. They are Rock Forest, Lost Ruins, Great Wall and Red City. Two additional free tracks, Fun Fair and Sea of Sand, could be downloaded from the game's web site. A multiplayer option is also available, allowing two players to compete over a LAN. The single player modes include "Time Attack" and "Championship". Several cheat codes are available that can be entered upon start up of the game. The most laps a player can do is up to eight on the Practice Race.

Hardware requirements[edit]

The minimum requirements for the Microsoft Windows version of Moto Racer are Windows 95, DirectX 3, a Pentium 133 MHz processor or equivalent, and 16MB of RAM. The game supports software or Direct3D rendering, but requires 16-bit color (the game will not launch if the Windows desktop is set to 32-bit color). The original retail games maybe difficult to play on current machines but the Moto Racer series of games have been released on GOG.com. They are now all playable on current Windows operating systems that includes 64bit operating systems.

Sequels and Spin-offs[edit]

Several sequels and spin-offs followed, including Moto Racer 2, Moto Racer World Tour, Moto Racer 3, Moto Racer Advance and Moto Racer DS.

Remake[edit]

In 2011 Anuman and Nobilis released a remake called Moto Racer 15th Anniversary for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
