Time for some racing action with Mad Skills Motocross 2. This is another great game that you won't find in BlackBerry World as it's an Android one but you can grab it from Snap (instructions at the base of the page) as long as you are running BlackBerry OS 10.2.1.
As you will see from the video, I used my Z30 to initially play the game. The good news is that I've subsequently also loaded it onto my Q10 and it works perfectly, which I was actually amazed to see. Like many games - you always get a better experience on bigger screens but the option is there this this one.
The aim of the game is quite simple - to beat your opponent to the finish line. On the left of the display are tabs for accelerate and brake, as well as the occasional boost you can pick up. On the right are two tabs for tilting your bike back and fourth - handy for doing summersaults whilst catching some air.
Although you'll be able to change up your bike and clothing colors - the in-app purchases won't work as it's an Android game. In this instance it's not something I'm overly concerned with but further down the line it will be nice if things were fully integrated.
The graphics and sound effects are great and with the smoothness of the game play it makes for a superb addition to your game selection on BlackBerry 10.
