Stunt Cycle  

"Realistic handlegrip throttle control accelerates motorcycle. Riders try to jump over an increasing number of buses without crashing - more than 8, it's a wipeout! The roar of acceleration, crashing, the cheer of the crowd - high speed wheelies over more and more buses add to the excitement."

Stunt Cycle, possibly the first motorcycle videogame was largely inspired by Evel Knievel . He was an American motorcycle daredevil, an entertainer famous in the United States and elsewhere between the late 1960s and early 1980s. Knievel's nationally televised motorcycle jumps, including his 1974 attempt to jump Snake River Canyon at Twin Falls, Idaho, represent four of the twenty most-watched ABC's Wide World of Sports events to date. His achievements and failures, including his record forty broken bones, earned him several entries in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In this video game you have to adjust the right speed with your motorcycle in order to succesfuly jump a higher number of buses.

Hoping to ride the crest of the Evel Knievel toy craze, Atari decided to release a home version of Stunt Cycle. Originally codenamed "Stunt Debbie" during it's design, Atari Stunt Cycle (Model C-450) was released in 1977.

It plays almost exactly like the original except the motorcyle is not going through lateral tubes to inverse its directions, but always pass from left to right. Moreover, the systems offer 4 game variations: Stunt Cycle, Enduro, Drag Race and Motocross.
