This game is very exciting! The game is basically free, and you can remove ads through IAP.

There are more things in heaven and earth.

hey nyanpass, why a lot of your posted games have different dev/publisher than the actual one on the AppStore???

edit > i.e. Dumb Luck Games doesn't exist on iOS, where did you get it from?

edit 2 > oh i see, you are copying the Android version title... be careful 'cause they are not always under the same dev name or publisher.

Some developers wanted to be listed in their studio name rather than in their own name. When considering official Homepage and Google Play, most developers prefer their studio name to their own names. (There are a number of reasons, but sometimes it is much more burdensome for a developer to write his or her name in a legal dispute than the company name.)

This developer has written the developer as a studio name on the homepage and on Google Play. So I personally thought that this developer liked studio name rather than his name.

And there are some opinions that it is more fair to the game itself to prevent preconceptions that may arise from the developer's name inferring the country of origin of the developer.

Basically, I checked the developer's homepage and Google Play, and showed the developer of some threads as a studio, not a developer's own name. (Sometimes, of course, not all threads are doing so.)

For this thread, I posted the developer as the developer's studio instead of the developer's name based on the site below.

Oh, I'll take your advice and then I'll check to see if they are the same. If I am not confident about it, I would open the thread as described in the App Store. Thank you.

A great complimentary game to Highway Runners.
Would love a Road Rash type mode where you can use weapons against AI or real time players.

Pure lovely fun...and ads were removed after five runs for $2.

Problems i had so far on my iphone 7, 10.3.3, after trying out a continue by watching an ad, i was stuck on a frozen screen right after my race. I had to restart the game but it was unable to do so. Everytime when the Gamecenter login appeared, i got thrown back to my homescreen. I deleted and re-dl the game and it worked again. No problems with restoring my purchase, btw. This morning the same starting problem with the game. The GC banner appeared for half a second and i was thrown back to my homescreen again. This time a hard reboot helped.
PLEASE, my dear Dev, have a close look into this. Or is it only me?

Unfortunately there are more continues possible, but no pure leaderboard what makes me give the game "only" 4 stars. Always a big miss in MY books. And just saying, although it's a steal for two bucks, some devs offer a free continue, at least, after buying the game.

The game offers quite some content and goals to play for. Different bikes AND behaviours, different routes with more hazards and some powerups to upgrade.
Love it and recommend it wholeheartedly!

Installed MB 98.1

Edit: unfortunately no music/sfx sliders (which also goes into my rating). I don't want to mute the fantastic bgm, but i also don't hear the sfx sounds enough. Pity.
