    Hang-On © 1985 Sega.

    Hang-On is a point-to-point 3D racing game in which players take control of a superbike and must race over five twisting, road-based circuits, avoiding rival bikers and trying to reach each end-of-stage checkpoint before the time limit expires.

    Collisions with roadside objects will see the rider thrown from his bike as the bike flips and explodes, costing the player valuable seconds waiting for a replacement to appear. Contact with rival racers will seriously affect control of the player's bike and should also be avoided.

    Any time remaining when a checkpoint is reached is carried over to the next stage. The five stages of 'Hang-On' are:
    • Alps
    • Grand Canyon
    • City Night
    • Seaside
    • Circuit

    TRIVIA
    Hang-On was released in July 1985.

    Hang-On was also released as:
    "Hang-On [Ride-On Model]"

    Hang-On was the first in a series of classic racing games designed by the legendary Yu Suzuki and his team (who would go on to create, among others, the "Out Run" series, as well as this game's sequel, "Super Hang-On"). This was the first simulation game in the world. After this game was released, the standard for motorcycle games is the riding type kind. This game was the first Sega game to use digitized drums in the music.

    This Sit-Down model featured a motorcycle handlebar, throttle and break lever. The cabinet also has a simulated tachometer and speedometer.

    In the 1988 arcade game "Power Drift", the motorcycle from Super Hang-On appears as a hidden vehicle that can only be accessed by winning first place on all five tracks for courses A, C, and E. It is only playable in the Extra Stage.

    Don Novak holds the official record for this game on a 'Simulator' cabinet with 40,715,030 points.
    Richard Powell holds the official record for this game on an 'Upright' cabinet with 33,923,450 points.

    Alfa Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Sega Taikan Game Special - 28XA-198) on December 21, 1987.
