It's still being modified for the past 12 hours or so in the Israel store..

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

I don't normally say this, but drop a buck on Bike Baron and save yourself the pain of the controls on this one. Bleh.

Plus, Bike Baron is THE closest you'll get to Trials on ios, FACT.

I really hope you like it. Now I'm all worried!! I honestly find it the most enjoyable of all the Trials-esque games in the app stores and I've played all of them.

The challenges, the waybthe bike feels, the FUN of it. Well it's the most fun I've had since Trials HD. And I played that so, so, so, so much.

Visually I totally agree. And it does an okay job with the physics, but at the same token it seems empty, like it's missing... Something. What it lacks in that spirit, I feel Bike Baron makes up for. Hell, I didn't need the Santa pack, but I bought it because I felt bad only paying the developers a dollar for a game that has given me so much joy.

Ice Rage or whatever, however, ugh. That game is another story. Love you Mountain Sheep, but I hate that game. Maybe if it had icade support I might not hate it as much.

Oh and Trial Xtreme is decent, but it gets very unbalanced very quickly. There's not much polish, they seem to have abandoned things like checkpoints after the first map or two.

And I might pick up xtreme wheels, but from what I see it runs for crap on most devices.

All this talk, I'm going to play bike baron. Damn, I really wanted to get some reading in.
