 **//Mach Rider//** is a 1985 [[hardware:​nes|NES]] game by [[company:​Nintendo]],​ similar to [[company:​Atari]]'​s //​[[game:​RoadBlasters]]//​. **//Mach Rider//** is a 1985 [[hardware:​nes|NES]] game by [[company:​Nintendo]],​ similar to [[company:​Atari]]'​s //​[[game:​RoadBlasters]]//​.
-((also sections for the toy, for the blurbs,--))+//Mach Rider// began as a 1972 dragster-ish toy (looking something like the games [[character:​Quadrunner]] enemies.
 =====Modes of play===== =====Modes of play=====
-((mention ​changing ​colours)) +Though goals vary from mode to mode, common elements include the [[character:​Quadrunner]] enemies who appear from behind the player, ​ and are colour coded by toughness; death causing barrels mostly along the edge of the track, but sometimes also on the road (also more points can be gained by defeating enemies by knocking them into barrels, rather than shooting them); ​changing ​weather conditions (slippery roads); and slippery obstacles on the ground (ie tacks, water, and oil). There are also nice palette swaps for the stages and main sprite as the stages change. 
-====Fighting==== +====Fighting ​Course==== 
-====Endurance==== +The goal here is to complete the course, avoiding both course obstacles, and the [[character:​Quadrunners]]. Before each stage the player is given two stage options to select from. 
-====Solo==== +====Endurance ​Course==== 
-====Design====+In the endurance course the goal is to cover a specified distance. Lives are not counted, though death will waste time. 
 +====Solo ​Course==== 
 +The solo course mode is the same the endurance, though without enemies. 
 +====Design ​Mode==== 
 +Here the player can construct courses from a good range of pieces, and use them in any of the above modes. This means you can make completely straight courses to cheat, or better make courses to challenge friends. Created tracks can be saved to the [[hardware:​nes#​Famicom Data Recorder]], or in the Virtual Console version, to the [[hardware:​Wii]]'​s internal memory.

 +The 1985 arcade versions of //Mach Rider// contain only one mode: in the Japanese release it is the fighting course, in the North American it is the Endurance course. Both versions feature the extra splash screens of [[character:​mach_rider|the character]],​ and also reward stage completion by [[theme:​revealing_images|unveiling]] parts of another version of that image, this time featuring [[character:​mach_rider|Mach Rider]] suitless, and female ala //​[[Metroid]]//​.

-The stage +The stage 'Pizza with a Vengence'​ plays similarly to //Mach Rider//, and other games of its ilk. Particularly //Mach Rider//​-esque is the jingle played upon each racing segment'​s completion.

 +//Melee// features covers of //Mach Rider// in the //​[[f-zero_series|F-Zero]]//​ Big Blue stage. There is also a Mach Rider trophy to be collected, accompanied by the following description:​
 +  * //'​After the destruction of his home town, Mach Rider jumped onto his machine-gun-equipped combat motorcycle and set off in search of a new home, destroying all the Quadrunners who got in his way. His motorcycle had four gears and endless ammunition. When hit, Mach Rider would break into fragments and then rejoin together.'//​

 +Here //Mach Rider// is represented in [[super_smash_bros_brawl#​stickers|sticker]] form, the image is taken from the illustration that features on the Japanese, and some of PAL-lands boxes. The sticker boots the strength of explosives-based moves. The same remix of the music appears again, this time in the Port Town stage.
