This was one of the very first N64 flash cartridges I ever managed to aqquire, along with Top Gear Rally 2. The cartridge came from a seller called Armyx in Spain and I honestly can't remember how much it is but I'd say in the $80 range.

The game contained in the flash cartridge is very incomplete yet somewhat playable, I say somewhat playable because the controlls are incredibly off, had they been a bit more accurate the game would've been playable. But if the analog stick is touched during play, which is obviously has to be, then the motorcycle will make a 90 degrees turn no matter how lightly you press the stick.

Other than that the game can be played in 640 x 480 mode which didn't make it into the final and I doubt any other N64 game ever used such a high resolution.

As if that wasn't enough a dinosaur driver can be chosen and as well as any track you desire.

All in all this is a pretty cool build that definately needed some work before going final - even the complete intro and titlescreen is missing.
