    For a small fee, Bike Baron offers a really fun cross/trial bike game. It is a great success from every point of view: super playable, and with cool animations, it allows you to run with an old guy's bike on many chaotic levels, in 4 different difficulty settings (Easy to Extreme). Those challenges are easy at first, but they quickly become very difficult and addictive. The game even features a track editor, with the ability to share your work with others. An excellent surprise on iOS platforms.

    An exceptionally polished action-arcade title, Bike Baron mixes precision controls with fun physics for a highly-engaging experience.

    Bike Baron is a game that provides fun and frustration in equal measure, but balances these at just the right level to perfectly hit that 'one more go' approach. Fans of Trials style games shouldn't hesitate to pick this one up.

    It's the closest thing to Trials HD you can get on iOS, but its difficulty gets overly frustrating at times.

    Difficulty aside, the only serious issue I've had with Bike Baron is the lack of a quick level reset.

    Bike Baron is frustratingly difficult, but in the best possible way - it never crosses that fine line between "hard" and "unfair." It's the best Trials HD clone to hit iOS.

    The problem is that escaping death is eventually impossible. From a fun, challenging beginning, having you gleefully wrestle a bike to the end of madcap courses, Bike Baron descends into a gruelling, joyless battle of wills: you against a sadistic games designer who favours obscene precision over all else, and doesn't provide the tools (an on-screen speedo, say) that would enable you to succeed.

First and foremost the game mechanic is almost perfect. After hours and hours of gameplay you might have the feeling that you've actually learned something about driving a cross :) That's amazing. You don't need anything else here. Just take a great mechanic, simple physics, WICKED level design and well balanced checkpoint and rewarding system. It delivers! Thumbs up for the Baron! Expand
