When I was a kid I loved my BMX bike. My friends and I used to make jumps and go on the dirt trails in the woods near where I grew up. Since I got a little older, I don’t quite have the energy and ability to rebound like I did when I was a kid. What I do now is play games about BMX bikes. This weeks games are all about BMX bike and racing or freestyle BMX.
Bike Race Free
Bike Race Free is a a game where the BMX rider is put through many realistic and imaginary courses. Some of the different courses ask the rider to be upside down for in air for a lot longer than realistically possible. The goal of the game is that of many BMX games where the rider is on a course and needs to rider jump over obstacles making it to the end of the course as fast as possible. The graphics of the obstacles could be a little bit better but for a free game it’s not bad and a lot of fun.
Pumped: BMX Free
Pumped: BMX Free is a popular game. There are a lot of locations to ride and thousands of different trick combos to try. The physics of the game are pretty good. The controls for the game are on screen as well as using the motion detector in the phone. This means there is always something going on and to control the rider. To get the hang of it, they ask for new players to go through the tutorial to learn the basics. Once the tutorial is done, the backyard opens up where it is more of a free ride while accumulating points.
Personally, I am a fan of the stick figure genre. Stickman BMX is a game with a really cool Official Trailer too. The different levels and hundreds of trick combinations on make for a very replayable game. What makes the game cool is the controls are easy to use and the graphics are great.
MegaRamp Skate & BMX FREE
Part of the BMX lifestyle is building ramps. MegaRamp Skate & BMX FREE has some of the sickest ramps in existence. The game has 10 real ramps from real locations in Woodward West, Woodward Camp, Times Square, LA, Santa Rosa
Plus: Zurich, Mexico City, São Paulo, Santiago. These ramps are scary big! Remember though, the bigger the ramp, the bigger the tricks.
Glide through the levels in BMX Boy using the simple controls to accelerate and jump. While the rider is traveling along the side scrolling half, different obstacles get in his way. Hurdling these obstacles while doing tricks earns points. To finish the level simply reached the end. Along the way there are trophies to accumulate as well. This is one of the simpler games in the list but still a lot of fun to play.
