Originally released by LucasArts in 1995, Full Throttle is a classic graphic adventure game from industry legend Tim Schafer, telling the story of Ben Throttle; butt-kicking leader of biker gang the Polecats, who gets caught up in a tale of Motorcycles, Mayhem and Murder.
Now over 20 years later, Full Throttle is back in a remastered edition that features all new hand-drawn and 3D high-resolution artwork, and with remastered audio and music. Blow your speakers with movie-quality sound and a full digital score featuring the GONE JACKALS - an authentic hard-hammerin' biker band!
Players will be able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix-n-match audio and graphics options to their heart’s desire. Also included is a concept art browser with work from Peter Chan, and a commentary track with the game’s original creators.

Ratings and Reviews
The game itself is great, don’t get me wrong, but the reason I give it 3 stars is because the controls are terrible. I spent a good 10 minutes trying to exit the kickstand bar at the beginning of the game, old mine road (more specifically, the highway) just simply will go black sometimes or not have a character sprite. The cutscenes are very easy to accidentally skip, you might have to restart the game to be able to exit an area and sometimes that doesn’t even work, currently, I am incapable of moving forward from the minefield because the exit button does not work.
It’s still the game it was in 1995 and with the remastered version, the art is well updated, but I don’t recommend playing it on iOS, get it on your PC or Ps4, it’s not worth the frustration here.
To sum up, don’t buy it on your phone/tablet until the developers have fixed it.
It’s a shame I have to leave 3 stars on a good game.
I'm writing this review from someone who grew up in this era but never played FT before. And was extremely apprehensive to purchase due to the negative Old Mine Rd bug. Didn't want to buy and get stuck but figured during the app sale to take a flyer. Glad I did...
I'm using a mini iPad 4. Since I never played before I finally got to the Mine Rd spot. I spent many do overs and probably played that area for an hour and not once did I experience any problems. Nor did I have any issues controlling the bike at all. I never crashed it during that hr. I just didn't know how to beat the different bikers with what type of weapon.
The controls at the destruction derby are whacked... that is until you figure it out. It took a long time but instead of trying to control the left and right side of the screen, just touch your car, keep your finger on the screen and drag your car as if you're tracing a path! Spoiler alert- then you can jump on the orange car easily and push it onto and off the second ramp. You don't even need to be precise for the cutscenes to happen.
I've been using a walk through up to that point to see if I could do it but alas sorta had to cheat. Been a good experience so far. I'm about 85% done. I think Grim Fandgo is the best, followed by Day of Tentacle then Full Throttle. But that's my opinion.
Don't let the bug comments stop you at least for a mini iPad 4.
Controls are fine
I’ve completed the original game at least 5 times when it came out back in the 90s and this version is AMAZING, I enjoyed it so much! The graphics were enhanced, it’s the wider format now and better resolution. The sound was enhanced and it’s stereo. You can switch back to original version with two finger swipe at any scene and see the difference, so cool! I’ve got a few freezes during the mine road scene, I waited or switched out to Home Screen and back and it worked. I don’t get all the negative reviews, there’s been a lot of art work done on this version. Thank you so much for bringing back the memories!
