Didn't see a thread here about this game yet so I thought I'd start one. I've never played the original Excitebike on the NES or whatever it was on, so this game is all new to me. I've played a few tracks now and I think I'm getting the hang of it. Managed to get #1 on Track 2. Seems the only controls are up and down to change lanes, and two buttons, Accelerate and Turbo. Looks like Accelerate is the button to keep you going and Turbo makes you go a bit faster but heats up your engine. From what I've experienced, Accelerate takes priority over Turbo when both buttons are held down. A good strategy seems to be to hold both buttons and just release Accelerate when you want to go that bit faster for a jump or something. I re-mapped my controls so that right shoulder button is Accelerate and left shoulder button is Turbo. Just having a look at the course editor now. Looks like you get 32 slots for custom courses. 1-1 to 1-4, then 2-1 to 2-4 and so on through to 8-1 to 8-4. Just discovered that Selection A means you ride by yourself just trying for the best time and Selection B pits you against AI opponents. Hmmm, the AI opponents really get away at the start! There must be some kind of boost trick by pressing a button at just the right time.
