Thumbs up!

The graphics are great! The colors are nicely saturated and the graphics almost have a cell shaded look to them. I really dig the art style.

The gameplay, you traverse pre-made levels based in different cities in a progression where the level lay outs get harder and harder to traverse. Each level has a bunch of stunts throughout and then a big finishing stunt. There is Everyplay integrated so you can save an share full videos of your play throughs. You also collect coins which are used firstly to unlock better bikes which you do need to advance in the levels and then for cosmetic outfits. The helmets are earned by doing stunts in each city. There is no pay to win here. You do not have any IAP or ads of any kind. So no 2x coins. You must play to earn the coins. There is a fully integrated mission system and tied into the mission system is a personal upgrade/leveling system with three things you can work on to increase your abilities while playing. As far as the gameplay goes I love it.

The controls! The control scheme is simple yet very very effective and easy to get the hang of. They are also extremely responsive. No lag whatsoever with the on screen buttons. You always have two buttons on the screen. A left and right button. While on the ground the left button is the brake and the right button is the gas. While in the air the left button rotates the bikes front wheel up and the right button rotates the front wheel down. That's it. Sounds easy but it does take some practice!

The sounds are great. I've not had any lag, issues, or crashes and I'm using the iPhone 5s running iOS 8.4.1

Definitely worth the money. Good work devs!

I dunno, man. You're talking about Evel Knievel there! That's a lot to live up to!! A true American daredevil hero! A legend!! I remember all of his jumps as a kid! Crazy nut that broke all the bones in his body at one time or another, then would get up and do it AGAIN, or something MORE rad! Strange that someone hasn't really had the balls to take all that to the next level after all these years! I mean, a couple have tried, but nothing really significant. His son gave it a shot. Evel was a true badass and a nice, gracious man. So that's why I'm a tad skeptical when I see his name attached to it. I don't wanna be let down! I hope this is great, but can't help but think from the video that it seems a bit slow. These Trials games and games like Daredevil Dave just seem to be a lot better and a lot more polished. I could be wrong in the end, and I hope I am, cause I want this to be awesome! Gonna keep an eye on it.

So true that no one is doing this anymore but I guess there was only one Evel Knievel!

This quote is from another thread and it's nothing new, but today, it struck me like thunder and lightning...

From today on, with this game and your (oh so damn right) comment above NOEN, i'm officialy stepping into Exact Psience's shoes, only one size bigger. Two paid games a week. Period.
Sorry my dearest hard working Devs out there, too many and too fast your games come out every week. I simply can't keep up nomore, and they should be played to the end if possible and not just gathered and stacked on a pile, right?

I'm still very occupied with my SuperSharp Quickboy the Landslider, trying to get Fugl's Dust *coughs* wellDown in the Darkland, while holding Helsing's Fire against Zombiematches and Impossible Super Ninjas...phew!

Soooo, NOEN, will you push me over this fence here, or over at Apocalypse Baseball?
*does not want to put pressure on him, lol*

Edit: just read your imps over there and decided to buy this colorful Evel (Makes my "poem" legitimate, lol), though it looks a bit stiff and slower paced...bought

Edit again: the great Timeshock! pinball with the best ios physics (not arguable) is from this Devs...good sign i guess.

I just pulled the trigger on this one, idk, can't pass up a decent looking bike game. As bigrand1 mentioned previously though, it looks slow from the video. I'll give it a go and come back with thoughts.
