Hydro Thunder Cheats For Dreamcast

  1. Super Start

    To get a jump start on the competition, wait until the announcer starts counting down. Immediately after he says, 'three', press and hold the R-Trigger. Immediately after he says, 'two', let go of R-Trigger and hold L-Trigger. Immediately after he says, 'one', let go of L-Trigger and hold the R-Trigger. When he says, 'Go, go, go!', you will get a nice boost and you'll hear 'Super Start!'

  2. Boost Jump

    After picking up some boost power-ups, you can do a special jump without the help of a ramp. If you hold the L-Trigger (brake) then Press A, you will be boosted into the air. This is great for getting those power-ups that are just out of reach.

Hydro Thunder Cheats For Arcade Games

  1. Super Starts

    To start a race with a burst of speed, hold the Throttle in the neutral position between Full and Back during the countdown. When the number ''1'' starts to disappear, quickly move the Throttle into the Forward position.

  2. Hydro Jumps

    The key to mastering Hydro Thunder is learning to use Hydro Jumps effectively. To perform one of these jumps, pull the Throttle into the Reverse position, then press the Boost button while holding the Throttle in Reverse. You must have Boost fuel in order to perform a Hydro Jump, and the amount of time you hold down the Boost button determines how high you will go. Hydro Jumps are effective for clearing obstacles, grabbing boosts, and reaching certain shortcuts.
