HairyPotter's comments:
The lite version is out!

Lite = free obviously

filesize (download) = 98.4 MB



Why do people think overbloomed/colored graphics are considered "good"?

Xtreme Wheels still looks better saturated..

EDIT: Removed old preview pic, because Appinfo seems to be working now!

Trials games are my favorite, and this one is pretty good, although the lean controls are no way near how accurate they need to be as they are not 'powerful' enough in making a difference in how hard the bike reacts.

The devs said it will come to iPad also, if you look there is already an "HD" version of the LITE available for iPad.

Hi

Nice graphics, awesome tracks design but really poor biker physics.

Wow I love trials bike games and have been waiting for this for ages. And from the lite version what a let down. That isn't Real physics lol and to even get it to play at a half decent frame rate I had to turn the graphics to low on my iPod 4G.
Well unless there's some kind of intro sale or it's real cheap to start with, I'll be skipping this one. I'm glad there was a lite version released first because this would have been an instabuy.
Not sure why but I expected better. All I can think is it might be running better for people with a 4s or iPad2?

At least 30 FPS on an iPhone 4S with high-level graphics. The physics are still ridiculous, though, and there seem too easy to get stuck in places. The first few courses are more involved than those in Xtreme Wheels, but otherwise it really doesn't seem to add much new to the genre.

I expect that the gameplay will improve in the final version (this strikes me as an open beta).

I wasn't talking about the style of controls, I was saying the leaning mechanism is not accurate enough for this game style; which is what other players may be touching on when saying the physics are off. The leaning does not operate 'strong enough' as even when I have the lean at maximum in one direction it does not manipulate the bike well enough.

Another very poor thing I noticed are the checkpoint locations. Several times I had to reverse from a checkpoint start to gain enough speed/momentum; and I don't mean reversing a few feet as on a few I probably had to back up 60-80 feet to clear the obstacle. Not thought out checkpoints at all; it's like they just dropped a checkpoint every X amount of feet with no consideration.

It has potential.

I agree, awesome graphics and soundtrack. But i think physics is much better than in the extreme wheels, for me, at least the wheels is still in their place, much more realistic.
