    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!

    Despite its simplicity and lack of content, there’s something strangely addictive and compelling about Super Night Riders, something that draws you to it even though on paper you know it’s not very good.

    Super Night Riders undoubtedly started out as a good idea. 80s and 90s racing games were cool, of that there is no doubt. But when you compare the visuals here to what's on display in upcoming projects such as 90s Super GT or Racing Apex – which aren't even finished yet - and then throw in super-repetitive gameplay and framerate issues, it all runs out of fuel rather quickly.

    Super Night Riders' potential is ultimately held back by a poor frame rate, as well as gameplay that is no stranger to frustration. As much as I want to recommend this independent, retro-inspired racer, I simply cannot.

    There’s 1000 gamerscore up for grabs and it’s certainly worth trying the game for yourself before saying it’s awful. Because who knows, it may just be my poor skill dragging my score down!

    I love that Super Night Riders is an homage to a dead genre and that it tries to replicate what others have done before, but for a new generation, unfortunately it just doesn’t have the same charm that the classics possess.

    From the moment I discovered this game bore similarities to Hang-On I knew I was going to dig this game and it did not disappoint. It's fun toFrom the moment I discovered this game bore similarities to Hang-On I knew I was going to dig this game and it did not disappoint. It's fun to play and pretty addicting too, but it is not without its flaws. Frame rate is iffy, there's a lack of modes within the game, the music is repetitive and gets old quickly and I suppose the gameplay feels that way in the long run too. Clearly it's not for everyone, but for me it's a very enjoyable racing game that pays homage to the good ol' days of arcade racing. Expand

I really respect the developer making the gameSuper Night Riders is only for gamers that want to experience old school racing videogames. I really respect the developer making the game alone but that can’t be an excuse. GunWorld 2, Thomas Was Alone and Dust: An Elysian Tale proof that one person developers can bring out good games too.
