Dude Man MotorX review (iPod/iPhone)

December 23, 2011

“Out of shadows, shining ever-bright
Neon Knights!”

10 word description: 2D neon visual style motorcycle challenges. 45 levels. Game center.

10 word review: Slight clunkiness and loading delays don’t really spoil fun game.

You will like this if you enjoy: Fairly simple side-view bike games with trippy neon graphics. No, I couldn’t really think of any others in that exact genre either, although Neon Rider is close – neonrider.org.

The good news: Great graphical style. Controls generally seem to work. Plenty of levels. Essentially a fun game.

The bad news: Apart from unexpected crashes caused by falling into holes that you don’t even know are there (due to flying very high up in the sky) or the rider vanishing (presumably because you weren’t level enough when hitting the ground), it’s pretty easy… maybe a bit too easy. The loading delays start to get irritating fairly quickly.

I can't believe we're collecting stars ... in a videogame! (Sorry, that was cheap and I acknowledge the fact)

Arcadelife verdict: Not bad at all, and the graphics and sense of fun save it from the annoying loading delays and occasional weird restart scenario. It shouldn’t take more than a few tweaks to sort this one out. Fun and playable as it is, but an update or two won’t hurt it.

Two good points here - it's pretty and it doesn't say Game Over
