    - Smooth, fast, free-roaming game-play

    - Over 18 different tricks Plus Fakies!

    - Combine tricks to create 1000's of unique Combos and Huge Scores

    - Special enhanced BMX physics

    - A story mode with challenges to unlock the full goodness

    This looks pretty cool. Any plans to go universal or to release an HD version for iPad?

    Thanks for the nice comments.

    We're not sure if we'll make this universal, but a HD version is on the update list.

    Here's a little more game art for you guys :)

    Thanks for the kind words :) I'll be putting up a game-play video soon that will show the flexibility of the trick and combo system.

    Thanks for your feedback. We've actually been thinking the same thing for a while. None of our testers mentioned anything about it though, but I know what your saying.

    We've taken out a couple of "non-essential" buttons and icons and resized and shortened some of the trick texts to help clean up the HUD/GUI a little.

    We plan on keeping Pocket BMX regularly updated and with the help of all your feedback, we'll able to tweak this to be the ultimate 2D BMX experience. :D

    BTW, we're aiming for a 30th September release date.

    This looks awesome, but a little complicated with so many buttons...

    I think the buttons look ok. Reminds me of a free running parkour game I played on iOS and I had no problems with the buttons in that game. ( it also had 3 or 4 button on either side of the screen, I'm using iPod 4g)

    Cant wait to play this. It's looking brilliant.

    It's out Now!!!

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry I've been quiet over the last while as we had pushed our release date back for a few reasons.
    We've made a new improved control system (see screen shot) which means LESS buttons! But we include both systems in the game, depending on what you prefer.

    More importantly though....we've just released the game today!! We're having a launch sale at 50% off, so for 99c you can pick up this awesome little 2D bmx game.

    Ok, now have a good play and let me know what you think. As I said before, we'll be updating this game very regularly, so the more feedback you give, the better the game will get.

    Thanks everyone!
