About This Game

Super Night Riders is a modern arcade racing game inspired by the retro classics.

You are Alice, a beautiful and talented motorcyclist known as the red rider.

In this game, your position in the race does not matter. It's all about traveling as far as possible while dodging the rival riders, and reaching each checkpoint before the timer goes down to zero.

The gameplay is fast and responsive similarly to the best retro racers, while the low-poly style is inspired by the early 3D arcades.

Ride through 36 beautiful stages in 6 challenging courses!

I sincerely enjoyed the last few days with this little racer.
Be it the chuckles of Alice on new records,
be it the mesmerizing music or the sense of speed.
Be it the tight responsive controls.
Be it the bulkier models of the other riders as you seem to be the only girl.
Sure, I started on easy because I'm a scrub that never finished Super Hang-On back in the day.
But you just become better as time goes by.
Becoming more and more aware of the mechanics of the game, it becomes more and more fun.
This game delivers a very healthy amount of fun and demand for concentration, making it your friendly racing half-hour for the good days.

This game is a love letter to a dead genre.
If you're a fan of Outrun, Rad Racer, Hang on, etc you will find yourself right at home here.
Super Night Riders doesn't really bring anything new, but it does refine things a little.
You get excellent playability with spot on controls, a silky smooth frame rate and a visual style that is perfect for the genre.
If you've never played a game like this, the basic idea is that you race the clock while avoiding your opponents, no realism, no gimmicks, just you and your skill.


So if you like the old arcade racers, do yourself a favour, there probably won't be another like this.

Decent start to what could be a good game but too short and too limited to justify even the $5.99 sale price. Get Final Freeway on android for $0.99 to get a much much better retro racing experience.

A nice time-waster but definitely don't get it at full price.
Interesting visuals, but the tracks are always the same and the "enemy" drivers seem to spawn at the same place every time.
This is worth 2-3 bucks at best. Barely recomended for nostalgia reasons.

Very fun old school style game.
You only need to use four controls, well really you only need three if you don't use the brakes.(cause slowing down is bad)
It take multiple tries to learn the track/course, but it's worth learning if you're gunning for the leaderboards.

It's hard to follow the upcoming turns in the night roads with the city lights, and the pink streets with pink landscape.
Other than those two things it a pretty solid game.

Enjoyable little throwback nod to classic Sega game Hang-On. Maybe not quite worth the regular $10 asking price but definitely a worthy sale purchase.

I love this game, I can't help but play it every other night or so. Though, it's kinda hard to recommend for $10. Definitely worth it on a sale though.

this is a amazing and cheap little score attack title, the graphics are mild and soothing paired with some very nice, but maybe a bit few, music tracks

highly reccomended

The game is definitely a trip back to the early days of racing games. its fun, but I have trouble recommending it for a few reasons.

1. The time limit. No matter if you pick course or stage, you have a time limit, and sadly theres no option for an endless mode where you can just race at your own pace to try to beat peoples times.
2. The Spotlights. The night sections of some maps feature street lights, which completely obscure your vision.

Ultimately, its a good game, for a good price at 5.99, but I really cant recommend it once its out of the sale period. Theres six courses, and thats it.

A clear homage to the classic racing game Super Hang On! from Sega AM2. It has all of the ideas but none of the charm. At $9.99 if you have a nintendo WiiU or 3DS I would actually recommend downloading Super Hang On! from the eShop for $5.99 instead, now THAT is a game for the AGES.

Its OutRun but with bikes <3

+ Great soundtrack
+ Fun racing and easy controls
+ 6 courses (each course has 6 short stages)
- Very short
- Night stages kinda confuse

i would say 5$ is a fair price, 10$ for the normal price is a bit much given the little content in this game .

Wonderful simplistic racer that takes me back to countless hours in the Arcade wasting my allowance on games like Outrun and Super Hang-On. Well worth the price of admission if you're an arcade fan. Don't expect fancy graphics, movies or an intricate story, this is all speed and split seconds.

The absolute best homage to classic Sega AM2 games I've ever played, nearly perfect were it not for the cluttered night stages, relatively poor variety and lack of end-timer coasting; d-pad support for menus would also be lovely.

Only played about a half hour of this game, but it is awesome! Especially for the price. Great soundtrack, colorful graphics, a great mechanic where the lighting changes based on what time of day it is, and extremely faced paced racing action. Reccomand to everyone who's a fan of arcade racers.
