Global Gaming Initiative Launches Sidekick Cycle

Global Gaming Initiative has just launched Sidekick Cycle in the Canadian App Store. It will soon be available in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and the US.

Sidekick Cycle is a one-touch downhill biking game. Customize your ride with an assortment of helpful Sidekick companion animals, then push it to the breaking point as your hurtle at top speed through dangerous courses filled with gravity-bending jumps and all that Mother Nature can throw at you.

More updates coming soon - we'll have a new video to share next week.

The game is now live in the App Stores in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. It is soft launched there so we can test it. It won’t be live in the US and European App Stores for at least week or two.
