This is actually pretty cool. The tilt controls work well (there's buttons if you want) and the levels all have 3 challenges to go for like don't crash, beat the time.
For 69p if your a fan of 2D bike games (like me) then its a must buy.

Looks interesting. But why there is a lite version only for iPad? Give some love to the smaller iDevices

Playing the HD lite version with the buttons, and on the tutorial level 4, where u start out by going backwards, I just cannot get the bike to react to do the necessary flip at all!!

I tested with the tilt, and cleared it easily, so it seems to me the buttons are not working well? Anyone else seen this?

Edited to add: I played a few island levels as well, and the buttons do move the rider, but has no affect at all on the bike.. Ipad2 iOS5

That is what I was thinking! When cabdog said that he was playing the 'lite' version, I searched for it and I could not find it :( So, is it worth it to buy it? I dont see a promotional video, so I have no idea how it is. I love 2d bike games. I wanted Bike Baron, but it did not run on my device. :(

Crum, no universal. I know it's only $2, but I am really put off by this fragmentation.

but as for the game, I don't know. I think I like some aspects of it, but it seems really... Slow and a little awkward. The fact that the buttons don't seem to work also ie sort of frustrating.

they do work... you just need to wait until the clock starts to start pushing down on the go button...


took me a while to realize that...

and pretty upsetting that you can't press go before the clock starts... usually costs 2-3 seconds on your time because of it...

bad idea
