fame.jpg 16.54KB 310 downloadsThe game itself is best played with exclusively with the direction pad although you can use the stylus for manuvering the bike. Most of you like me will give up on stylus control quickly enough in favour of the easy direction pad. The aim is to control the bike over rough and winding terrains. Each level features a start and finish and you have to get to the end as quickly as you can without crashing (not as easy as it sounds!). Although the game does start off fairly easy, with you soon showing off your deft control doing somersaults, the levels quickly become more difficult providing a stiff challenge. Expect to crash more then a few times when you get to the expert levels!

If you don't believe me at how tight and difficult this level is look at the pic below (and that's barely a second into the level!). After repeated attempts I'm now able to get three quarters of the way through this level but even this feels like an achievement!
ground_pocket.jpg 15.15KB 283 downloadsIn case you want a change of scenary during the life of the game (which should be quite long given how long I've been playing this!) there's an alternative Game Skin called 'Nuclear' which paints the levels and backgrounds in more moody shades. I actually found it more appealing so tend to use it whenever I play...

This bodes well for further support. And supported this is given it is possible to upload level replays to the developers site and enter an online ladder for BestBikers. There is even the promise of tournaments with prizes! If that wasn't enough the developers promise additional level paks to come and the ability to create your own levels for the game. This should ensure that this purchase is a good purchase (and at a reasonable price too).
fame.jpg 16.54KB 260 downloadsSo all in all, and after an unsure start and initial reservations, I've become quite addicted to Motogear! The more I crashed trying to do the expert levels the more I just had to keep playing! I found myself picking it up intending just to have a quick play (5 minutes top!) and half an hour later would finally succeed in beating whichever level I'd been struggling with. What satisfaction! Still, those of you with a temper and a tendancy to throw your device across the room when frustrated may want to avoid this For the rest of us, at a good price (under £10!) this is a great addition to your gaming collection and especially good for those bus journeys to or from work.
