HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this one!!! I got it the week it was released, and loved it. LOVED IT !! lol... It's pretty damn challenging with all the gravity shifts and everything... Stages 18-30 were a pain, took me about a day to beat each one... Sometimes more... =oP

But as frustrating as it was, it was just as fun, and twice as awesome a feeling when you finally beat a level you've been trying to beat for a day or two... =oP

Looks great, but another no-go on an iPod 2G. Maybe another one to store on the ole' PC until I can afford to upgrade (which at this point will be .... never).

I said the same thing, till I realized I just needed to sell my 2g (which drops by the day in value due to its age and the same reason you want to upgrade, the games are starting to move past it, so the longer you hold it, the less it will be worth), sell a few games (or whatever you fancy), and save a bit of money up, and presto!* iPod Touch 4g

*It may or may not be as easy as this, depending on your individual circumstances, terms and conditions may apply, ask for more details at your local eBay store, pawn shop, used game store, etc.

Great little game, but man, that bike is akward!

TIP: Flip the bike so you can use the rear shock to cushion falls when moving forward (as the front/rear shocks absorb in different angles, which is very useful in certain situations...)

Thanks for the kind words and downloads

I think it was a mistake on my part to make tilt controls the default option -- I encourage everyone to try out the buttons (change it in the options menu) and use whichever control method you prefer
