You must complete each course in the time limit without
running out of fuel to qualify for the next course. At the
start of the race use the left/right controls to run to your
ATV. Then jump onto it and start riding. Use the up/down
controls to wheelie and left/right to accelerate/brake. You
can also turn around to get a run up for a jump. Use the jump
control to get extra lift when you go up a ramp and also to
clear sharp edges without crashing. To get up steep surfaces
wheelie slowly towards them and jump repeatedly to climp up.
If you crash and come off your ATV press jump to get up, run
back to your ATV, face in the right direction and jump back
onto it.

Always keep your front wheel up as you climb over objects.
Never land on your front wheel.
Go slowly over ALL shart or steep objects.
Jumping objects reduces your chance of crashing into them.


I had ATV on a 4 game collection called Quattro Power.  And for me this was the stand out game on the collection which I play a lot.

The game is side scrolling and you drive an ATV over various courses and obstacles.

The game playability was good and had a bit of an learning curve in the best way to move you over obstacles judging your speed and how much to lift the front of ATV.

I very much enjoyed the various obstacles and jumps. This game is challenging but rewarding give it a go.
