Game Introduction

Mad Motor is a side scrolling Road Rash-style game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The unique element to this game is that your character can morph into a monster. This happens when your life bar is almost gone. Your character morphs into a mutant and so does his motorcycle. The transformation effect is fun to watch and a digitized voice says "I'm alive! Wolf Power!(?)". Once transformed your character-attacks become more devestating but only one hit is needed to kill you.
