Cons:

  • Difficulty spikes in later levels with pixel perfect landings and jumps required.
  • No notification of levels unlocking.
  • No customisation of the bike or rider.
  • Would be nice to have a controls layout choice as the default one is serviceable but awkward.
  • No multiple save slots to enable more people to fill your leader boards.

In Summary, It is a basic Trials clone with a new setting of an over sized world, Or you are a small ass little man but either way its a new setting. The controls are tight and pulling off flips and tricks is easy and fun. Whilst the graphics may come under some scrutiny, I can only say that the core game is more than entertaining and for the most part your not really paying attention to every detail. Yes the game feels really dumbed down but for that very reason it is more accessible than the more challenging games in this genre. As is you do get a lot of game for the small amount you will pay for it. The file size is small, The levels are small thus making it a good mobile game to have on your 3DS. Toy Stunt bike, For people who cannot handle Trials HD!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
