App description: Ride, Build, Share and Compete!

Experience the heart-pounding, insane and adrenaline-packed thrills of Downhill, Freeride and Slopestyle mountain biking as you progress from Novice to Pro Rider in the ultimate Mountain Biking gaming experience.

Youll travel the globe - from Whistler to the Alps - beating Pro Riders, tackling trail challenges, conquering mountains, building trails, upgrading your bikes & components and competing against friends. Youll learn to pump for speed, trick for points and "huck steezy senders" like the pros. With 18 progressively audacious tricks to learn, and a practically infinite range of combos to attempt, youll be soaring like an eagle while pulling combos the Pros haven't even dreamed of yet..!

Built from the ground up for iOS as the ultimate touch-based extreme sports game, Mountain Biker has been made by a small team of ex-Electronic Arts employees who previously helped bring you some of the greatest console games ever, including: SSX, Burnout, Need For Speed, Black, NBA Street and many more.

Simple to play, hard to master. Mountain Biker uses intuitive finger controls to let you easily race downhill with a tap and effortlessly pull tricks with the flick of a finger. Building trails is as easy as drag-and-drop, and with seamless integration into Game Centre, youll be competing against friends, finding new rivals and rising to infamy with crazy scores no-one in the world can grasp how you managed to pull off.

Mountain Biking has never been this much fun!

I've been playing this one quite a bit since it released. It's pretty good. I still say Bike Mayhem is a little better, but this is still great. It controls like Tiny Wings or that Red Bull mountain biking game that released a couple months ago. Tap and hold when going downhill, let off when going uphill, swipe to do tricks, ect. There are tons of bikes, upgrades, and tracks and it really looks good too. It's got some pretty good devs behind the game. It's definitely worth checking out if you dig these kinda games like me.

Can't say I'm loving the freemium feel of the setup of this game. $4.49 AUD up front, then unlocking tricks and trails requires in game currency, that's..... Ok, but it appears that many of the later bikes to unlock are real world dollars only... Then there's the miriad of coin iap's withe the most expensive one topping out at $119.00AUD. They're ex EA devs right, not still working for them? Sorry but it leaves a bad feeling that I've just spent 4.50 on something that I'm gonna have to spend way more to finish... Hope I'm wrong...

Ok , so played a bit more, and whilst I am enjoying it, I'm finding it a bit of a grind in terms of earning enough coins to unlock stuff. I've unlocked Utah trails now, which left me with 17 coins, the game is recommending I get a better bike, which cost 100 coins. So I'm having to re run the first lot of trails to level up ( which will get me 25 coins each level). Can't say after the entry fee to get this that I'm super happy about grinding... I shall persist for a bit and see how it goes.
@ Neon, interested to hear what you think. Always value your opinion, cheers

Good game. Pretty hard to get the hands on though: tilting the phone isn't always reactive.

Yea, I'm running into the same issue here. At first I didn't mind everything costing coins because I had enough of them, but it's almost like they are gently forcing you into buying a coin pack. The game itself is fun and all, but EVERYTHING costs coins! Every bike, part, and even track. I dunno. I don't mind grinding, but I'm afraid it's just gonna get worse the farther I go. We'll see.

Hopefully, thanks NOEN, It just takes a bit of the enjoyment away for me.. I'll keep playing and see.

@noen, have you reach the level where you offered a part that you cant buy because you dont have enough coins yet?grinding is a term where you have to replay the same area over and over again just to gain enough resource to buy stuffs. but after played it for one and a half hour, more or less, i still didnt find the parts that i cant buy. well maybe its too early to tell but so far im good with it. ill try a lil bit longer later to find out.
