Racing unicycles, how could that possibly be a good video game? Surprisingly, Uniracers is one of the best games on SNES. Not only does Uniracers have phenomenal high-paced gameplay, its soundtrack will keep you pumped up the entire time!

Uniracers was created by DMA Design, a company that almost no one will recognize in today’s video game world. However, if you do a little digging, you’ll find that DMA Design also created Lemmings, which was a huge hit in the early 1990s. 1994 brought us Uniracers, and in 1997 DMA Design changed video gaming forever by developing the original Grand Theft Auto (GTA). DMA Design is now known as Rockstar North, and has influenced almost all major Rockstar titles including every GTA, L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3, and Manhunt. Rockstar North/DMA Design is a studio bred with winners who understand video games on all levels. So it’s no surprise that Uniracers is a fantastic video game with a killer soundtrack!

Uniracers’ main theme is below. Once it gets your blood pumpin’, I highly encourage you AND a friend to check out the full game on your nearest SNES 🙂
