Excite Bike was also one
of those 80's arcade games where 25 cents would go a long way.
In this 80s game, you basically raced other bikes to the finish
line, via various jumps and obstacles. The player had to
milk the accelerator vs. the engine temperature and maneuver the
bike over jumps so as to land as accurately as possible.
Additional levels got progressively more difficult. The
full size version comes up now and again, while there are plenty
of Nintendo, Sega, etc. versions.
