Highway Rider is an insane high-speed motorcycle game that rewards you for your fearless close calls (with speeding vehicles) on the highway, and charges you money A’la a “hospital bill” for all the broken bones that your are sure to earn along the way. Good motorcycle iPhone and iPad games can be hard to come by in the iTunes App Store, except for Lane Splitter, a fun arcade game similar to this — yet subtly different. Highway Rider takes a more realistic approach by giving you a 1 point or 1 close call for each moving vehicle you speed close enough to — and to achieve this you have to get pretty close.
The object in Single Play mode is to see how many close calls you can get before crashing, which seems easy but there is always a catch; isn’t there? Well, there is in this game. Each time you pass a car in Single Play mode your speed increases 5 to 10 mph, which at first does not seem like much. However, as you continue to successfully blaze by vehicles, you’ll find those vehicles are coming at you at an intense speed. At this point, it is best to let your reflexes take over because if you think too hard, you will find yourself splattered all over the back of a semi-truck or guardrail. Crashing will eventually happen to you, and when it does all your injuries are racked up like a long receipt you get when checking out at the grocery store, with a total bill and a cut scene to the hospital before you can play again. I would love to see a feature or the ability to tap past this and get racing again sooner, because it seems like minutes before you can get back to the game and try to beat your last best Close Call score.
The only other real criticism that I have is the lack of better effects when the rider crashes. The ragdoll effect is cool, as well as the blood pool, but I want to see body parts and a more realistic destruction of the body with levels of death or near death results. A real plus to this current FREE game is the Multi-Player game mode where you can race live against another person through Apple Game Center, the first person to 50 close calls wins — first to crash — loses. There is also some minor customization you can change for the rider and bike color. Overall, I’d say that this FREE, high-speed game is an easy download for any gamer.
