Enemies[edit]

The mysterious invaders who are attacking the Earth, also known as Evil Forces and Quadrunners. They travel from city to city on their trikes, and Mach Rider is on a mission to stop them. There are six different colours, indicating how many shots it takes to destroy them. Enemies can also be pushed into obstacles (blocked) to defeat them, which is worth more points and adds 18 bullets (9 shots) to your ammo, up to a maximum of 254 bullets. If an enemy collides with Mach Rider from the rear or at low speed, then you explode.

Enemy Invader Types
Colour Shots to beat Points (Destroyed) Points (Blocked)
Pink 1 200 400
Green 2 500 1,000
Red 3 1,000 2,000
Blue 4 2,000 4,000
Purple 5 3,000 9,000
Black 6 5,000 20,000

Obstacles[edit]

Rock[edit]

Rocks appear as obstacles in the middle of the road. Mach Rider will explode upon impact. They cannot be destroyed and must be avoided.

Oil Drum[edit]

There are two types of oil drum. Blue drums line the edge of the road. Black drums appear as obstacles in the middle of the road. Mach Rider will explode upon impact with either type. Both can be destroyed by a single shot for 300 points.

Bomber Ball[edit]

These explosive balls sit in the road. Mach Rider will explode upon impact. They can be destroyed for 1,000 points.

Water, oil and tacks[edit]

Pools of water and oil sit in the road and cause Mach Rider to lose control of the motorcycle. Tacks also cause Mach Rider to slip, but are dropped by enemy invaders. You can try to regain control of the bike by dropping gears and countersteering.

Ice[edit]

On some Sectors, the colour of the course will suddenly change to white, causing the road to become slippery. Drop gears to keep control of your bike, and countersteer if you start to slide.
