I'm d/l now...


You're quick, I was searching for the old thread, happened to look and you made one

And yeah, we'll consider this a temporary TOFTT by a non-member

I'm getting ready to try, the more I look at the appstore desc. I kind of think we got the kiddie version of BOD 2 (which I own)

It's fun. The menus are well done (polished) and the control system is intuitive enough. The physics seem fairly well-balanced and the models aren't quite as fragile as the BoD2 models ...

Ok only played 10 mins but like it quite a bit. For those who like Bike or Die 2 they will absolutely guaranteed HATE this one. This way too easy for those hardcore masochists. Anyway for me this has fun gameplay. You can choose 3 characters like one due has a motorcycle, chick has like an ATV. Anyway you collect 6 golfballs or 6 cherries for instance to clear the level. You can adjust the controls in options to anywhere on screen you wish just like in Bike or Die 2. For tilt of bike press left or right OR use accelerometer which actually works pretty decent. You have lots of suspension. Dying does occur when your get clipped at the neck for instance. But you can jump down from pretty high and land it without crotch remorse. Overall I like this and brings back memories to the game I played in 1998 or 1999 on windows. Wish I could remember what it was called I couldn't find it amongst all the dirt bike flash games so will still search.

agreed. I think for $.99, this is what the ones who said to make BOD 2 easier, more "realistic" were wanting. The control layout is very similar. (besides buttons, there is accelerometer controls avail.) the tracks have interactive pieces such as boards, bricks, toy ball etc... The best thing in my opinion are the graphics. They are bright, vivid and "crisp". The whole feel is reminissant of Stuart Little, a bit "kiddie" but in a way Bugdom tried to achieve.

I think I still like BOD 2 better, but then I am a diehard of that game. I don't regret my TOFTT, and I'm sure my $.99 was well utillized.

Elastomania was released in 2000, but that was THE motorbike game.
