Published in the book The Giant Book Of Games For Your BBC Micro from Fontana Publishing. The book contained the following description:
In this fast-moving game you have to ride your light cycle around the screen avoiding the computer's cycle and making sure you don't run over the trail left by either your own bike or the computer's. The aim of the game is to enclose the computer so that it cannot move. It, of course, is trying to do the same thing to you.
You control your cycle as follows:
: To move up.
/ To move down.
Z To move left.
X To move right.
If you hold down the SHIFT key, your cycle will move twice as fast, which gives you the chance of riding through trails. However, this option should not be tried lightly because it is programmed to work only around 50 per cent of the time.
Light Cycles was written by Neal Cavalier-Smith.
