Uniracers had the best instruction manual

I don’t remember why I originally bothered to read this manual 25 years ago, but I ended up reading it to enjoy the jokes and humorous writing it contained.

I had to check and yes it is indeed a British game. The humor was a dead giveaway. In fact, this game was DMA Design aka Rockstar North, of Lemmings and Shadow of the Beast fame.

Didn’t it have a big blank page at the end that wasn’t entirely blank? Pretty sure it has a joke (probably funnier to my adolescent mind than it is now) but I’m not entirely sure.

The tabletop was doing a headstand, right? Not something you’d want to do in a race but could be a great finisher on the stunt courses.

I don’t remember. I want to play this again. I’d be shocked if my snes still works somehow.

Time to find an emulator I guess.

One of my favourites from SNES! Really fond memories playing it with my sister.

Wow this is a timely post. I was just thinking about how I used to play Uniracer with a friend who lived down the street from me in elementary school.

This was such a neat game

I actually miss this. I know there are still out there games with silly concepts, but think about this: unicycles racing against each other and that’s about it. lol
