Editors' Review

Elasto Mania purports to be a motorbike simulator arcade game. The arcade qualities are immediately evident, as low-resolution graphics suggest a release date circa 1986. The controls are simple to learn, yet difficult to master. Four arrow keys accelerate, brake, lean forward, and lean backward, while the spacebar switches the biker's direction in a 2D universe.

The simulation aspects of the game become clearer once you actually try to ride the bike. Because the back wheel is attached by an elastic band, the physical effects on the motorcycle are dramatic. Accelerate too fast and you'll flip backward. Brake too quickly and you'll fall forward. This elastic twist makes it quite difficult to collect apples, avoid obstacles, and reach the white flower in the fastest time possible, but a few minutes on Warm Up will have most gamers competent enough to enjoy the game. And at 2 in the morning, as you try to get past the Loop-de-Loop for the 56th time, you'll realize all too well the addictive nature of the Elasto Mania gameplay. A global community of rabid fans has created tons of new levels and graphics for gamers who register for the full version.
