Dirt bike game with wipeouts best for older kids.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

The game couldn't be easier to play with tilt controlling the rider's lean and the top and bottom of the screen serving as brakes and gas pedal. With infinite lives you don't have to worry about how many times he falls off. You can practice until you get it right.

Violence

Onscreen characters occasionally grunt or cry out in pain when they crash.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that kids don't have to be interested in dirt biking to get a big kick out of this cute sports game. But they can make it so the rider gets roughed-up. Also, the controls are such that younger players could be very frustrated. Our review is based on the iPhone app; the Android app may have some differences in functionality.

What's it about?

Players traverse a series of outdoor tracks, attempting to keep their balance and not wreck. The screen is sectioned into four parts: acceleration, braking, tilt forward, or tilt backward. Players can also use the phone or tablet's accelerometer to tilt their device to steady riders in the air. The game is easier than some other dirt bike racing games, but still takes a while to master.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Kids can experience the thrill of riding a dirt bike in this addicting physics game. The object is to keep the rider on his bike over 21 different steep and rugged trails. The controls are easy but knowing when to brake, accelerate and lean back or forward at just the right time is hard at first. Spills can be quite spectacular as the ragdoll rider flips through the air and tumbles down inclines making funny groaning noises along the way.
