If a game is for free and it also belongs to the top downloaded apps in the App Store, then you have hit the jackpot. Bike Race is such a title that allows you to play a character in a side-scrolling simulation of a bike ride across various terrains. Besides being grateful enough that you can download a sports game for free, Bike Race is actually really fun to play whether it’s time you want to pass or high scores you need to achieve.
The game is a single-player adventure of sorts where you get to ride a bike across different levels and get to do various stunts to gain good ratings. Unfortunately, there is no multiplayer option for Bike Race but that doesn’t mean that it is any less fun to play at all. It is very challenging to play and although you can essentially complete every level given some time and ample practice, getting perfect scores is very hard to do. That is the point of the game, in essence. You need to get all three stars in every level to perfect the entire game and leave it guns blazing. Every stage has a star rating and three is the highest number you can get. This will all depend on how great you perform and how fast you can finish the course.
Controlling the bike in this game can’t be easier than anything else that you’ve ever played. All you need to do to control the bike is to tilt your device sideways (left or right) to change the direction in which it will face. For instance, if you are going uphill and jump from it, tilting your device to the left will cause the bike to face up and hang in the air. On the other hand, if you tilt it to the right, the bike will dive nose down. Depending on the track you will play in, various techniques and movements need to be done in order to complete the area without any crashes or mistakes. A truly fun experience indeed! For something that is virtual, you can literally feel your heart skip a beat whenever you jump in the air using your bike in this game.
In terms of tracks, there are four areas you can choose from in Bike Race Game. You can pick the Desert, Arctic, Dunes or Savanna. Each area has its own backdrop which adds to the fun element of playing the game. However, those four areas are just the start of it. Soon enough, there will be updates to the game which will include new areas to race in for sure. In another aspect of the game, there are also upgrades for bikes you can buy from the in-game store. If you are willing to shell out a few bucks, the bikes that are displayed there will definitely be of great use to you. For instance, one of the bikes you can buy for $9.99 is the Kids Mode bike. It will not break and jumping will be made easier once you start using it. Not a bad investment, especially if you play this game a lot!
