Sidekick Cycle is a weird one. The game itself is a lot like a ton of other sidescrolling level-based runners out there, but you're on a bike, in Africa, doing backflips. The gimmick of the game, however, is that every time the game gets downloaded 387 times they donate one bike. It's a cool angle, I guess, but those bikes seem awfully expensive to me.

Sidekick Cycle should be available in the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern, in the meantime, you can swing by the forum thread to see what our community is saying about the game.

UPDATE: We've heard from the developers that this game is currently in a soft launch status and will be released in the coming weeks.

    Yeah the point Eli made and how it's kind of counter productive since you can't list that proceeds go to charity in the description. But, review sites can mention it all they want. In fact, I wonder if you guys would have noticed this game if it wasn't going to charity.

    Either way, thanks for the heads up about this game.

    Looks cool. It bothers me that this is a game about riding a bike and yet the tires on the bike are way too blocky. I'll most likely pick it up for charity.
