Free Rider HD - race on tracks created by other players!



Free Rider HD is an addicting game where you race on tracks created by other players. Thousands of top tracks to play, challenge friends, create the track of your dreams and more!

Free Rider 1 was first released back in 2007/2008 shortly followed by Free Rider 2 which has reached 100's of millions of plays on the web and has gone on to be one of the most successful flash game franchises of all time.

Free Rider HD (http://www.freeriderhd.com/) is the latest edition of the game and has been built to be a true multi-device game (desktop, XBoxOne, phones, tablets, anything that can run a browser). The game currently plays well on iPad / iPhone devices through Safari or Chrome.

While in beta we are currently focused on wrapping up a few features before we bring it to iOS AppStore later this year. Besides the iOS integration we will have additional support for offline content but game play will be the same.

We are developers that listen to their players, we would love to hear your feedback on what we have so far! Please let us know if you are playing on iPhone, iPad or both in the comments. Web accounts will be accessible through the AppStore version when that is released so progress will be saved.

Track Creator (only functional on iPad, disabled for phone): http://www.freeriderhd.com/create

Thanks for taking the time to check it out, once we have a more solid release date we will be back to update then.

Play Free Rider HD on your iPad or iPhone no download required and free to play! Race on 1000s of top tracks created by other players, challenge friends, create the track of your dreams and more!

Looks good, I'll keep an eye on this,
I just tried the web version and it works really well on iPad4, I'm actually really surprised as I've never played a game in my iPad browser before it works so well I can see me playing it. But will certainly look forward to an actual app version too.

Until then, if you bookmark it to your home screen through Safari it will keep it fresh in your mind.

Thanks for the positive feedback!

We will post future updates here. But you are always welcome to create an account on FreeRiderHD.com to stay in the loop + join the community to give feedback at the ground level.

If you have any feedback on the current iPhone/iPad functionality of FreeRiderHD.com we would love to hear it.

Current focus is to add progression to the game (points+campaigns) and then really round out the track creator tools.

Thanks for the support!

Sounds good, would love your feedback on what we have playable for iOS on the web now: FreeRiderHD.com

Performance in the browser of iOS 7 and above is quite good.

The app version would just have improved offline support.
