This is a rare Xonox double-ender cartridge (two games in one). The games are:
  • From the classic tradition of fantasy heroes comes TOMARC the Barbarian. Lost in a maze of underground caves, TOMARC searches for his lost sword with which he can save the lovely SENTA. She is held prisoner in a magical cage in ruins above the caves. You control TOMARC as he searches caverns and avoids deadly rat-like creatures, and SENTA as she fights off vampire bats from her prison. Multiscreen action as you control both characters in each scene at the same time! You must listen for the danger sounds from the nonvisible screen and quickly rush to the rescue.
  • Bone-jarring off-road motorcycle racing in three events. You first must qualify in the Desert Scramble where you race across the desert avoiding the prickly cactus, desert creatures, rocks, etc., in a race of speed and time. Hit an object and your dirt bike slows down. Hit too many and you won't qualify for the next race. The Hill Climb is a torturous race up a switchback mountain full of obstacles. Speed is important but control is vital or you'll be out of the race. Qualify with a fast time and you're in the Beach Sprint against other qualifiers in an all-out dash for the championship.
