* TyrannosaurusRex: Naturally one comes after the pair in the middle of the Dinosaur World level. Ironically they're saved by another one that knocks the pursuing one aside.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Among the things that can be seen in the first level are [[WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine a windmill, a green tank engine with the number 6, two brown tram engines with the number 7, and a blue tank engine with the number 1]].

Added DiffLines:

* ForTheEvulz: If Ending D is any indication, Mommy and Marrow have no motives for ruining history other than causing chaos and watching the world burn.

Added DiffLines:

* NintendoHard: There's no option to continue, there's only one life, and there's no way to restore the handcar's health. Combined with all the hazards that require speed and timing to avoid, it's quite rare to see anyone even finish the game without losing, let alone get the good endings.

Added DiffLines:

* GoKartingWithBowser: In the congratulation screen, Mommy and Marrow applaud Roy and Alma.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Mommy and Marrow are both LaughablyEvil incompetent villains, yet [[spoiler: in one ending, they destroy Roy's hometown and likely more with time displaced monsters.]]


* NewWorkRecycledGraphics: The Dinosaur World level noticeably reuses the T. Rex model from ''[[VideoGame/JurassicParkArcade The Lost World: Jurassic Park]],'' which was also made by SEGA, along with the roar sound clip for the T. Rex from that game as well.

* StoryBranching: Depending on whether the player's able to keep up with Mommy and Marrow, the following level will change. For example, successfully catching up to Mommy and Marrow in the first level and taking back the stone from them results in the Safari level while falling behind too much results in the South Sea level.


* HoistByHisOwnPetard: If you beat Mommy and Marrow in the Dinosaur World level, they're taken out by one of the dinosaur bones Marrow was throwing like a boomerang.

The story apparently starts in the Netherlands in which a boy name Roy is just milling around in a field. That is until a bright light catches his eye out comes a girl and two men after her, taking away a stone on her person and jumping on a handcar to escape. The girl, Alma, begs for Roy's help in retrieving the stone as it has the power to travel through time which the men, Mommy (yes, really) and his henchman, Marrow, want to take over the world. Roy agrees, they board their own handcar and the chase is on.

The game is a major test of one's reflexes as they try to keep the handcar safe through the adventure as each bump puts damage to the hardcar and results in an automatic game over if destroyed. The game has different tracks depending on if you retrieve the stone or the villains manage to hang onto it.
