    This mountain biking game blends an idyllic nature aesthetic with tight arcade action to create a surprisingly thrilling adventure.

    Lonely Mountains: Downhill is easily the best mountain biking game available. True, there’s not a lot of competition, but even if there was it would be hard to top. The terrain is a blast to explore, each bike opens up a different style of play and the atmosphere is about as close to perfect as you could hope for. The progression system to unlock new bikes takes a bit too long, and sometimes the bike physics get a bit wonky, but it’s hard to let that get in the way when the next trail opens up or a new shortcut reveals a path that knocks several seconds off the clock. The wilderness of Lonely Mountains: Downhill seems initially empty because there are no other people to be found, but they’d just get in the way of enjoying the peaceful serenity to be found in bouncing down the trail while holding on for dear life.

    Lonely Mountains: Downhill reminds me of many favorite games from my childhood. Not because it's a game with retro flair, but because it explains what was then due to the technical limits, a virtue - to pour with simple means and no frills a good idea in a fun gameplay.

    Lonely Mountains is far from lonely, it rekindles a feeling of childhood. Of meeting with friends and exploring the woods, daring each other to take jumps or freewheel through water. It’s a game about being alone, by being at one with nature and the bike beneath you.

    It takes a level of persistence that many won't be inclined to reach. [Issue#340, p.120]

After playing six hours I can say: "Lonely Mountains: Downhill" is a little masterpiece. It's difficult and at the same time hilarious. The tracks are varied and it is a lot of fun to discover new shortcuts to finally master them to beat the record.
    The game also runs smooth and the controls work so precisely that I, unfortunately, have to admit that a drop is my own fault. It has never been so much fun to hit my nose again and again^^.

    So who has to play this game?:
    You like to chase high scores? You like sports games? You like speed runs or just want to relax in the evening and test your skills? Then this is the game for you. There are two ways of enjoying the game. The first is just bicycling downhill to discover and enjoy the beautiful landscapes, the second is master the various challenges and break the community records.
    Well done ;)

    Jugabilidad 10/10 : MANDO (control), TECLADO, Mouse (RATON)
    En mi caso tuve la oportunidad de probar con teclado y mouse y se juega de maravilla. Fàcil de usar, hasta para un niño.
    Gràficos 9/10: tengo una tarjeta grafica gtx 950m 4R, y funciona de maravilla va a 60 fps en altos. Lògico por la carga grafica sencilla pero muy adecuada para el juego, fàcil podria ser un juego para mòvil.
    Diseño 10/10: Probè 2 rutas de 6, y en ambas los diseños aunque sencillos, muy bien ambientados, montañas rocas, bosque, rios, etc.
    Audio 8/10: En mi caso un 8 por la falta de banda sonora del juego, pero puedes poner tu musica favorita para amenizar tus descensos. En mi caso usè spotify en superposicion y el juego a la ves y corre de maravilla. En el caso de los efectos de sonido de las llantas muy bien.
    Recomendado: 4 estrellas, por el precio y el tiempo de diversiòn, es un juego que vale la pena tener en tu colecciòn para pasar el rato, recomendado.
    Pay to win y lootboxes, no hay en este juego. Bueno hasta ahora.
    El contenido es desbloqueable cumpliendo retos.

    This game is fantastic! I've been watching it since its debut on Kickstarter.

    I really enjoy the cell shaded graphics, when you're not
    This game is fantastic! I've been watching it since its debut on Kickstarter.

    I really enjoy the cell shaded graphics, when you're not shredding down the mountain the overall setting is very relaxing and serene.

    For the actual gameplay, it plays like a single player racing game, go for the best time across different tracks using different bikes. Challenges include the standard "beat track in under X minutes", as well as beating tracks with less than X crashes. There's also full leaderboard support to try to be the best of the best.

    I've only unlocked two bikes so far, but they feel different enough that it changes how you play. Also the different mountains feature a lot of different mechanics when it comes to biking, and have distinct themes.

    It's very well made. I'm a bit worried that it won't last me too long, but for $20 it's totally worth it.

    I'd also love to see a ghost mode where you can see other people's path through the courses as you try to beat their times.
