The sound effects stand out as special, as do the superb graphics. Action is as rip-roaring as the ST and the graphics have been improved a good deal. High-class racing.
A few years ago a strange machine began to appear in arcades across the country. It consisted of a monitor in the front of a red replica of a racing bike. You were supposed to sit on the bike and lean sideways to steer around the corners. That was Hang-On.
Later a whole new breed of 'moving' race games began to spring up, so Sega came up with another machine – Super Hang-On, this took the original, improved the graphics and sound, added new stages and tunes and gave players a different bike to sit on.
Some proclaimed that the new version was the best racing game ever, 'even better than Out Run' (I wonder where that one came from…), so naturally there had to be a conversion…
Super Hang-On offers pure, simple fun and lots of playability, and while there's no great depth, the speed of gameplay is nerve-tingling even without nitro-injection - real edge-of-the-seat action. It's the best racing game on the Amiga.
It leaves the newly released Amiga version of Out Run (and almost every other race game) way back on the starting grid in terms of speed and enjoyment value and warrants every Amiga owner's attention.
Jump onto your racing bike and zoom around a selection of testing tracks, which vary in difficulty. No matter what other racing games you have played you won't be prepared for the speed and acceleration of Super Hang-on.
Hör du till dem som gillar motorcykelspel är Super HangOn helt oumbärlig i din samling. Ett spel som ger dig hand- och joystickkramp efter bara 10 minuter, men samtidigt får du massor med action. Ett härligt spel!
Occasionally, you may feel the need to be a little nasty and nudge slower drivers out of your way. You won't wreck no matter how hard you hit another motorcycle. However, any altercations with billboards or trees that line the track will result in you and your cycle lying in a sickly looking pile. Though perhaps not the most original game concept, Super Hang On can definitely be entertaining. Just go fast, be mean when you have to - and be sure you don't tip your chair over.
Die Grafiken der einzelnen Routen, die wiederum in Abschnitte mit Zeitlimit aufgeteilt sind, sind mit der ST-Fassung nahezu identisch, aber teilweise etwas durchwachsen. So gibt‘s mal eine grobe Grauabstufung für den Himmel, aber auch herrliche Farbverläufe samt schönen Backgrounds, vor denen das Gasgeben Spaß macht. Die Animation und das Scrolling gehen allenfalls okay, nur an manchen Stellen flackert ein Sprite mal - warum eigentlich??? Dafür wurde aber der Sound etwas verbessert, was sowohl für die FX als auch die Musi gilt, die auf dem ST alles andere als toll waren. Was insgesamt übrigbleibt, ist also ein gelungenes Rennspiel!
