Realistically, anything is worth your buck. >_> It's just a dollar.

My impressions based on the lite version were that the presentation and music (honestly some of the best I've seen on iOS) were top-notch, but the bike felt weightless. I see the physics have been improved in the latest update's notes, and I guess I'll be checking it out later in the day.

This tempted me when it came out, so I might as well jump on it for a dollar.

Sounds cool, I'll hold off until more impressions.

You know, I really don't care if this looks like a carbon rip-off of Trials HD and has a silly "titl(e)" (>_>), it's really outstanding in every single way. I'm not really sure if the bike physics were changed with the last update, or I just didn't give the lite version that much of a chance, but this is really, REALLY good. Everything just screams "console quality" (except for the still cutscenes, but whatever) and if the visual and auditory orgasm wasn't enough, the tracks are fun, challenging and just so satisfying to complete. There's almost an endless amount of replayability (objectives, getting gold, making bets) and absolutely no IAPs. I hate that this hasn't been getting the attention it deserves...seriously guys, get this while it's still on sale. Wow.
