Starting lives[edit]

On the first Sector of Fighting Course mode, you have an energy bar that depletes over time or if Mach Rider takes damage. The amount of energy you have at the end of the first Sector decides how many extra lives you have from Course 2 onwards:

  • 9 or more Energy - 3 extra lives
  • 6 to 8 Energy - 2 extra lives
  • 3 to 5 Energy - 1 extra life
  • 1 to 2 Energy - 0 extra lives

If Mach Rider runs out of energy in the first sector, you get a Game Over. In Endurance Course and Solo Course modes, you don't have energy or extra lives, but taking hits will cost you time.

Extra lives[edit]

In Fighting Course mode, you will be awarded with an extra life after clearing Sectors 4, 7, 10, 13, 16 and 19.

Game Over[edit]

If you run out of Energy or run out of lives, you will get a Game Over. In Endurance Course or Solo Course modes, you will also get a Game Over if you fail to drive the required distance within the time limit.

Continue code[edit]

After clearing 5 Sectors, getting a Game Over and returning to the title screen, hold Right dpad, B button and press Start button. This allows you to continue from a later Sector.

  • Sectors 1-5 - restart from Sector 1
  • Sectors 6-10 - restart from Sector 6
  • Sectors 11-15 - restart from Sector 11
  • Sectors 16-20 - restart from Sector 16

After using the continue code, the first Sector you play on will use the Energy system, rather than extra lives.
