Kahen Soukou Gunbike: Speed Power Gunbike (可変走攻 ガンバイク Speed Power Gunbike), is an action video game released on April 23, 1998 exclusively in Japan for the PlayStation. It was the first game developed by Inti Creates and was published by Sony Music Entertainment Japan.[1] According to GameSpot, the game is known for its very high difficulty.

Gameplay[edit]

The game is set 100 years in the future and is inspired by anime. Players race against the clock through obstacles and enemies, including bosses, and can change into three mech modes anytime during gameplay: rally mode, bike mode and robot mode, each varying in stats.[2] There's an "Anergy" meter that slowly ticks down from 99, displaying the percentage of full power, and if it hits zero, the game is over. The meter ticks down rapidly every time damage is taken. There is also a tutorial mode.[3]

Reception[edit]

The game received a 6.6/10 rating from GameSpot, citing the "frustrating controls" and that positioning the camera can be "sluggish and awkward".[3]
