Trivia Edit

  • Time Trial has no enemies but in the menu it is depicted that there are "light" enemy forces. Ironically, the level, Race, has some and is depicted minimal.
  • Dying by smashing into a tree during the descent is considered by the game to be a "grenade" kill, even giving the tip that grenades can roll downhill.
