Mario Excitebike



Mario Excitebike is a game that came out on the Japanese satellite system "Satellaview" and was sadly never released on a normal cart. The Satellaview was an add-on to the SNES system and it let you download games and info. When you start the game there will be a timer in the upper-left corner of the screen and also some text will roll on. You'll have to wait about two minutes before you can actually get into the game. My guess is that you had to wait for the game to be downloaded with the Satellaview, so that is why there is a delay.



As you can see, the available drivers in this version are Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, and Wario. There are multiple versions of this game, including one which lets you drive as Yoshi. In the game you also race against Koopa Troopas. There doesn't seem to be any difference in handling or speed between the different drivers. The game is one player only, which is too bad, because a two player Excitebike would be a blast. There is no track editor like the one in the original Excitebike on the NES.



The sound in the game is pretty good, with things you'd expect like the engine sounds and all. Also, the characters will occasionally shout out one of their lines from Mario Kart 64 which is amusing.

The gameplay is just like the original Excitebike, but they did add a few things. On the track is mud and oil that slows you down, also just like in Super Mario Kart you can collect coins to make you go faster. If you collect enough coins, you get Star power which makes it so your engine never overheats.

There are also bonus games. One game is the Long Jump. The object is to get as much speed as you can, hit the jump, and travel as long as you can and then land perfectly. Your score depends on how far you jumped and how well you landed.

The next game is the Boo Jump. Boos line up in different forms/shapes and you have to jump over them, dare-devil style! You must jump over them and reach the finish as soon as possible.
