Elasto Mania info

General info
Elasto Mania, familiarly Elma/Across 2 (published in January 2000), is a very addictive 2-D motorbike simulation game, based on a real physical model. It normally divides the opinions very strictly, people either love or hate it. Most love :)

In the game, you have to complete various stages, levels by collecting all the apples as fast as possible and then touching the flower. So, the idea is very simple and might sound a bit boring but it definetly is not. Maybe it's just the simple idea which makes the game so addictive.

Some features
The shareware version game contains 18 tracks, the registered version 54. The game has a very easy-to-use track editor, which is limited in the SW version. You can actually make any kind of tracks, and there is no limit how much. In case you run out of ideas, you can always go to the web and download thousands of new ones designed by other fans of the game. If you want, just save the replay (.rec) file of your drive so you will be able to see how you drove that drive. Of course you can copy them to/from other people too. If you can't find out how a level should be passed through or just faster, you will probably find a replay of it from somewhere.

Where to get it?
The Shareware version is freely distributable, though if you want to distribute it, you must include all the files in the right-named zip file and not touch the file names. The full version costs $9.95 and can be ordered from here or from the official site.

Also you can order Elasto Mania Forever CD which includes registered Elasto Mania, Action SuperCross (older version) and lots of stuff related to Elma. You will love it, we promise. More info here. This probably is the easiest and the most convenient way of getting the game.

Instrcutions how to run Elma under Unix >>

System requirements

Differences from Across
Elasto Mania has 12 more levels, a multi-player option and improved graphics. Also the physics have changed a bit but not too much. You can also import your own graphics to the game with a LGR Development Kit which you can find from our lgr page. Also the game can't be run from clean DOS anymore.
