's gameplay is pretty basic. In fact, it is very
basic. The game is targeted very much so toward young children. There are two real modes of play: Obstacle Course and Racetrack. The single-player Obstacle Courses allow you to run through the courses with different goals in mind (see 'Difficulty' below). All the time you race, you need to avoid the many fallen trees, boulders, swamps, flowing lava and other pitfalls in order to clear the level.
Like the Obstacle Courses, the Racetracks allow you to choose from one of four characters straight from The Land Before Time: Little Foot, Cera, Spike, and Ducky. On the Racetracks, it's you against your opponent. Here you can choose to play against a friend or versus a computer-controlled dino. There are still many hazards to avoid, but the ultimate goal is finishing first. Strangely enough, this isn't all that easy.
In a Crash Bandicoot sort of way, the LBT Racing's screen continues to move forward along the track as you run and the only controls you need to use are those that steer your dinosaur, jump and hit a button for the occasional speed burst. This makes it easy enough for smaller children to get into the action, but steering the dinos is actually harder than it looks.
