Mirko designed a very sadistic level out of it, even Kimmo had trouble finishing that one

Luckily to preserve our mental health Mirko has also been making half a dozen new and less evil levels that are coming in an update soon!

Another great game today and another purchase. Going to have to do some serious re-organizing of my screen pages.

Alright, fine...the game is spectacular in every way imaginable! If you've played Minigore, you know what to expect from Mountain Sheep. Every last bit of the game is frickin' polished, you need sunglasses just to look at your screen. The graphics on a retina screen are gorgeous, the menus are clean, simple and to the point, the music in the menus is worth poking your screen for an hour so it doesn't go into standby while you do nothing but listen and there's something very charming about the way the whole game is put together. It feels very console-ish in a way. All games like Bike Baron require precise controls and on a touchscreen, that's always risky...Bike Baron absolutely nails it though. The game also runs buttery smooth, without a single hitch even when you've gotten a boost, are soaring in the air and are bound to go face first into the ground.

Honest to God, I don't understand how this is being sold at $0.99, especially when it's universal. I also feel like I need to come and personally hand you guys a dollar.

*shuts up and goes back to playing*
Thank You so much for this! After reading this I finally decided to buy it and am loving it at the moment, although considering it's Mountain Sheep I don't know why I didn't buy it earlier...

Um, this may be a bug, or maybe it's just part of the game but I'd like to double check... After completing a level (with 3 stars if that matters at all) is the next level meant to automatically unlock for you? It never seems to do this so I have to click the unlock button which uses up a star...
Yeah, just checking, that might be the way it works.

Hey guys, just gotta say, the game is freaking amazing! Absolutely loving it and can't put it down. Gonna have to get into the level editor here soon and see what I can come up with.

Of course, don't forget to head on over to the Community Codes post in the General Discussions sections and post your codes. I'll get them up at baronscodes.blogspot.com soon after so you guys can start voting on the levels after you've played them.

You guys are definitely in for a treat with this game.
As much as I was looking forward to Feed Me Sandwiches and Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots, I just don't see myself spending more time on them than I will with this.

That's how it works. Only Joker levels unlock automatically, all other locked levels "cost" you 1 star to unlock them

I feel I should issuse a public health warning about extreme track 2 you will lose a small part of your sanity trying to beat this track. :-)

:-) thanks. 2D trial bike style games are my fav genre I've been playing them since I first discovered elastomania 15 years ago 'ish.
I'd say now that bike baron is sitting real close to the top of my fav bike games of all time right behind trials hd.

I can see the level editor getting a lot of use. And is there a limit to the never of custom tracks you can have saved?

Will there always be codes for the level editor or will there someday be a menu which pops up showing level names, ratings by players, number of downloads, etc. allowing you to download levels without the need to find a code?
Just thought it would be a cool idea, although I have no idea how hard it would be to implement, etc.
Until then I'll just use the thread in the General Chat for codes
