Radikal Bikers is a racing arcade game developed by the Spanish company Gaelco in 1998, with also a conversion for PlayStation developed instead by Bit Managers. The spiritual successor to this game was Smashing Drive.

Gameplay[edit]

Radikal Bikers is set in a Mediterranean environment, and is based on delivering pizza on a rare Italian scooter called Italjet Dragster in heavy traffic before your AI opponent does, while getting points. It has three difficulty levels, which correspond to each of the different places: Capricciosa (medium, set in Rome), Margherita (easy, set in Milan) and Diabola (hard, set in Naples). If you beat all four races in a level, you get to play the next level free.

Points[edit]

  • Win one race - +50000;
  • Get Power-up - +1000 each;
  • Power Kick destructions - +1000 each;
  • Grabbing an Extra Point Power-up - +3000 each.

Power-ups[edit]

  • Turbo - Indicated by the letter "T" gives the High Speed, which is incompatible with Power Kick;
  • Power Kick - Indicated by the "bomb" allows you to blow up cars by kicking them in the side for points, and is also incompatible with Turbo;
  • Extra Points - Indicated by the "$" gives a bonus of 3000 points;
  • Extra Time - Indicated by the "hourglass" gives +1 second of time;
  • The Joker - Indicated by the "?" gives a Random power-up or extra points, which is actually based on its position and the biker you choose.

  • Carlo - From "Paolo's Maniak Pizza";
  • Gino - From "Frenzy Mario Pizza", but is present in the PlayStation version with the new name Paolo;
