Enduro Racer (エンデューロレーサー) is a 1986 racing arcade game. It is extremely similar to Hang-On, using the same engine and base hardware (which is based on Space Harrier) but featuring dirt bikes. There are also numerous additions such as jumps and hills (the latter being used again in OutRun). Like Hang-On, sit-down arcade cabinets in the shape of bikes were produced, which if moved would control the player on-screen.

History

Legacy

Like many of Sega's early arcade games, Enduro Racer was ported to the Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum, all with significant cutbacks and original music (except for the Spectrum and CPC ports, which used the original music and no music, respectively). Curiously, unlike most Sega arcade ports of this nature, no Amiga version was ever released - it is assumed one was planned at some stage, but it never surfaced.

Enduro Racer is also the only known Sega game to receive an officially licensed port to Thomson's MO5 line of computers in France.

Enduro Racer was also brought to the Sega Master System, albeit in a different form.
