Stay the Distance

Game Description: Select a horse and guide it to the winners circle in this fun steeplechase race!

How to Play Stay the Distance:

  • Click the Play button located at the bottom right corner of the game screen.

  • The up arrow key increases the pace.
  • The down arrow key decreases the pace.

Stay the Distance Game Options:
  • The sound may be turned on or off by clicking the microphone icon located in the upper left corner of the game screen.

Stay the Distance Playing Tips:
  • You can always identify your horse by the spotlight beneath its feet.
  • The 3 bars located on the upper right corner of the game screen show the distance left, your energy level and the whips remaining.
  • Watch your energy - if you've got a horse with long odds you'll need to conserve it and attack the field near the very end!
  • Jumping is very important. If your horse falls, it will slow down.
  • Turning is also very important. Try not to turn too wide, or get too close to the rail.
  • Try not to get boxed in!

Richard's Rating: 3 out of 5.

Pro: Stay the Distance is quite fun with nice sound effects and fairly good graphics. It is definitely a fun game to play.

Con: Occasionally your horse may become stuck on one of the rails and it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to dislodge it. This is certainly frustrating, but it does not happen all that often.
