Bike or Die 2 out

For that I was not expecting... I've played on my Palm but iPhone version looks really nice.

$2.99 is not that high by the way.

BRILLIANT!!!! My new fave game!
Fluid, great physics, 2500 levels, online score and I think replays... Much music and way too many customization options(typical of palm dev) but it's a good thing... Really good built in tutorials and help everywhere.

Well worth skipping lunch for.

Is this like Jelly Car?
I have to admit I didn't really enjoy Jelly Car. Maybe it's because I never got a handle on the controls but the game didn't really appeal to me. I found it extremely frustrating.
So I'm wondering if Bike or Die is like it, because then I obviously know to stay away.

So do you like this one then?
And does this mean it's not similar to Jelly Car?

there was a similar of game years ago, enduro? There is an open source version of that too for Linux mac win.

Controls and gameplay much better than jelly car, jelly is cool but crazy, this is realistic. Quite different games, although sharing some concepts.

Nothing is made of Jelly in this

Simply great game! Controls are good but it takes some getting used to how the rider reacts to your input. Realistic? Not really. That A-word? Yeah (addictive)
