Uniracers is a fast-paced sidescrolling unicycle racing game for the SNES. Woo.

Not so "woo", though, was how Pixar sued DMA Design over the usage of CG unicycles too similar to the ones seen in Red's Dream. Because of the lawsuit that took place, the game couldn't be produced beyond its initial run and only 300,000 copies of the game were sold as a result.

Unused Graphics

These tiles are the first graphics loaded into VRAM upon bootup. A message is written inside a 48×32 box: "used by decomp". This space gets overwritten by the unicycle graphic used on the "pick your uni" screen.

Unused Music

Uniracers has two unused music tracks. The first sounds like it could have been an alternate title screen theme, while the second was probably just an additional piece of in-game background music.

Enter the Pro Action Replay (PAR) codes listed below each file to play the corresponding piece of music at the title screen.

Unused Combo Messages

When a combo is pulled off, there is a chance a message will display after each trick has appeared on the screen, ranging from 'Excellent' to "I hate races!' . There are eight sets of these messages in-game which are shared by each pair of unis on the title screen (e.g. Mike and Andrew share the same set). A ninth set exists in the game's code at offset 0BD679 which goes unused since there are only eight pairs of unis on the character select screen. However, this set is accessible when playing as ghost unis Someone or Bronson using the Pro Action Replay (PAR) codes 7E017D10 or 7E017D11 respectively.

The unused messages are as follows:

yes!
cool!
funky!
check that out
fight on!
ride on!
yeah!
done that!
no problem!
that was easy!
nailed it!
slammed 'em!
bingo!
crusin'!
banzai!

Banned Uniracer Names

The game contains a list of swears, slang terms, and occult-related items that cannot be used when naming a player (the game replies "not cool enough" if you try to enter one). Even seemingly innocuous words like "face", "head", and "ball" aren't allowed. Amusingly, two of these items are "Sonic" and "Sega", obvious jabs at Nintendo's business rival at the time.

Regional Differences

In the European version, the game's title was changed to Unirally and given a different logo. Part of the Uniracers logo can still be seen in the reflection on the track, though.
