Mobile game developer ToySpring has posted a gameplay video of their upcoming iPhone port of Bike or Die 2.

Bike or Die is an existing PalmOS title which is described as a trial bike racing game with 25 built-in levels and thousands of 3rd party levels. We can't be sure of all the features that will make it to the iPhone version of the sequel, but the gameplay video is very impressive.

Note that there appears to be "glue" in one example level shown which keeps the bike from freely falling with gravity. Another trailer (not labeled as an iPhone version) shows additional features (glue, updrafts, portals) of the game. No release dates have been posted and the game is described as a "work in progress".

Note of trivia, the music in the video was originally from a 1993 Pygmy Projects Amiga Demo called Extension.

Update: The developer let us know that the game is nearing completion and they hope for a release in the next week or so. The game is also identical to the Palm version and so you will be able to compare scores against Palm players and also use the same 3rd party levels. Players of the old Palm version can even install their old recordings.

    I like that you can customize the buttons to place them where you want them. All games with on-screen buttons should have this.

    Without doubt the BEST game yet for iPhone -- I had the Palm version and played it for months. The difficulty level was pitched just right -- you'll find yourself thinking about playing the game day after day.

    I've bought a lot of apps from iTunes -- some are gems, but 95% are rubbish. Bike or Die! for iPhone looks like the hottest thing since a hot pizza being pulled from a hot oven covered in exta hot Chillis.

    I think Toyspring have single handedly raised the bar x 2 for iphone games from now on. Everyone else better start running to catch up.

    Please, can you release it now? I need to buy it!!!!!

    I was hoping for something like X-Moto, but this look way more polished.

    For some reason this game kind of reminds me of Jelly Car except with a bike and more options.

    Yes, I agree, this game si going to be a must buy in the likes of Crash and Monkeyball. The developers have a very intuitive online community. I would guess this game would be at the $9.99 price, but with the cheap prices of all the appstore games you never know. I know it was $14.99 on the Palm OS when I bought it there.
