Tricks, tricks, and more tricks. Add some flair to your runs! Simply collecting the required items and crossing the finish line is not enough. Gotta string as many tricks together as you can to get the high score needed to unlock the trophy for each level. Each track seems to require a different high score to unlock the trophy, though.

Collecting the trophies is like a game within the game

Sorry we havent replied sooner, we couldnt sleep last night til we had found a fix (we have one now).

From the reports we were getting, it looks like its not happening on all iPad4s, but its definitely happening on some. All other devices and iPads are 100% working.

If people are having this problem, Id still love them to mail support@hellogames.co.uk with their details (iOS version, whether they use Gamecenter, language/store region, Wifi/3G etc.). Well keep them up to date.

We got one report of the crash yesterday during the day (we had some more last night as the game is becoming really popular), me and Stevie (the two developers) stayed all last night until we found a fix. We fixed it very late last night, and well submit that to Apple immediately after its gone through further testing here today.

Thanks for your support and patience. The toucharcade community has been amazing. Really incredible to see so many positive comments.

Were super sorry its happened for some people. We want everyone to be able to play as much as they do.

Thanks,
Sean and Stevie!
welcome , and you guys are awesome to come on here, and to stay all night to fix a patch that's dedication! thanks for responding to my email sorry i sent it to like facebook and your email just wanted to get it out there...

It's not that similar to the PS3 version... different levels, different objectives, auto accelerate, no analog balancing/bike rotation, tap to collect items rather than ride through them all...

But I'm quite glad about that. They're playing to the strengths of the device and it makes both versions worth owning.

I'm quite at the start still, I finished the first 2 tours and in the middle of the 3rd, but here are my thoughts so far: while it is a nice game for sure and extremely polished, I can't say it's a great game. The main problem with it is the same problem I had with Rayman Jungle Run - it just made me want to play Rayman Origins. And Joe Danger Touch just makes me want to play Joe Danger. I also feel that with virtual buttons this would play well: 2 buttons for moving forward and backwards and 2 buttons for flipping. Games like Bike Baron, Motocross Madness have proved to play very well with a 4 button setup. As is, while the presentation is definitely Joe Danger, the gameplay is completely different, it doesn't feel like I can go crazy with nutty flips and insane combos for ridiculous high scores as in the PSN/XBLA version.

These are of course very early impressions but I have the feeling I'm getting the gist of it already.

I have both bike baron and this game.

Stop playing bike baron after a few games when it was released while i can't stop playing this game.

Controls are so good, it's really fun and challenge is great!

So better than bike baron in any way.

Btw, there is a bug giving infinite money that should be fixed.

This is a five star game! I've recently had a hard time getting hooked on any iOS games but this is the cure. Really polished, well thought out levels with achievable objectives, and great use of touchscreen controls. Quickly and easily made into my all time favorite list. Cant stop playing it, I just finished the first hard tour with all pro badges. I'm not going to stop until I complete all of the objectives and trophies.

This game is amazing. Great replay value, and a good amount of levels. This is without a doubt a must buy game.

Oh I thought there was a hidden costume character
