Mad Skills MotoCross was developed by Turborilla and will take you on an adrenaline-pumping ride of your life. For those who ever had the opportunity of playing “Excitebike” for the Nintendo, this game plays very similarly and basically got a major facelift, although unofficial.
Mad Skills MotoCross spans over 52 exciting tracks, and features two awesome modes: Time Attack and Career Mode. Time Attack Mode will pit you against your ghost and it’s your job to beat your previous scores.
Career mode will have 5 different divisions. You will be racing against an A.I Biker and begin where all rookies begin: the lower division. During the course you will learn and be required to do stunts like flips and wheelies. Tricks will be challenging and it does take some practice before you get it right. Once polish your skills you will get into the big leagues aka first division and brag about it on Twitter and Facebook.
The controls are very simple and even novice gamers should jump into the game fairly quickly. Your gas and break buttons will be on the left and you will be able to control your movements with the buttons on the right. The control buttons will allow you to pull off some sick tricks like back and front flips and wheelies while also keeping your rider balanced during the course.
While the controls are pretty straightforward finishing the race is not. Mad Skills Motocross is not about going full steam ahead. You will have to know where to hit a jump at the right angle so you can get turbo boosting power-ups to leave your opponent coughing in the dust you leave behind.
The physics engine of the game is where this game really shines. Mad Skills Motocross features fantastic rag-doll physics complete with backbreaking bone-crunching wrecks. Flying in the air and balancing on the many different jumps and bumps while hitting another slope actually seemed like a realistic version of what actually professionals have to do.
Mad Skills Motocross offers a lot of fun and excitement for those who love racing games. Graphically it isn’t amazing but it makes up for that in the game play. For only $0.99 I can?t complain, this is a fantastic game. Grab it via this direct iTunes link.
