Saber Rider Demo

Here you can find our free demo version of Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs.

The whole game is designed to feel like a classic 16-Bit cartridge
console game. The menu is very simple and straight forward.
There are no button explanations in the game.
Like back in the old days, you have to read the manual on this page or find out everything yourself.
You can navigate to and start the level very fast.

The demo version is available for Sega Dreamcast, Windows, MacOS and Linux.
Click the system you want to downlaod the demo for.

                

Please note that this is a one mission demo version.
There are still features missing or not complete.
Some animations like the saloon doors for example are not yet animated.
The second attack is still missing and there are no high scores yet.

This demo represents the first mission of the game and shows the Hero Mode.
The mission in the demo got some changes, so that the game story won’t be
spoiled. The first mission in general is based upon the two series episodes
“Wild Horses Couldn’t Drag Me Away” and “Little Pardner”.
In the final version, this level will have a few more story driven events and
a different end boss. The current boss in the demo will later be a mini boss.

In the demo, you can only play with the character Fireball.
