Driving you loopy
Over the 32 different tracks, you have to accelerate and tilt the bike to pass through the different obstacles. While it is somewhat easy at first, the game quickly becomes challenging with loops and long jumps. It is fun to try and achieve three star ratings in each of the levels, but it can take a lot of practice.
Using the accelerometer can be frustrating: with smaller devices, it is easy to control the tilt of the bike, but with Android tablets, the size is awkward and fine-tuning is more difficult.
As you level up, you can evolve your different bikes to combine their abilities. The multiplayer mode allows you to play against 8 to 40 people, and you can use your combo bikes both in single player and multiplayer modes.
Graphics in Bike Race Free are cartoony and do not feature a lot of fine details, but it works perfectly for the gameplay. The backgrounds are static, and the camera follows the motion of the bike as it runs through the course.
There is a problem with the camera because it is not possible to zoom out, so parts of the track are usually unseen and can cause you to crash.
Fun but not without its issues
Bike Race Free is a fun game, but the camera does cause some unnecessary difficulty.
