Another Android beauty - Mad Skills Motocross 2 on BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 13 Mar 2014 03:33 pm EDT

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. 

Mad Skills Motocross 2 includes:

  • UNBELIEVABLE PHYSICS! - Mad Skills Motocross 2 features the best motorcycle physics of any side-scrolling racing game on the planet. You’ll be amazed at the responsiveness of the bikes in this game. The more you play, the faster (and more addicted) you’ll get.
  • 7 DIFFERENT BIKES! - Work your way up through 7 different motorcycles, each with different speeds and handling. Get the fastest bike and dominate your friends!
  • DOZENS OF TRACKS – WITH MORE ADDED EVERY WEEK FOR FREE! - Mad Skills Motocross 2 has enough content to keep you busy for years. Beat the stock opponent on dozens of career tracks, and then see if you can beat the Ace to unlock more tracks. Once you’ve Aced them all, take on your friends, neighbors, and players all over the world.
  • WEEKLY COMPETITIONS! - Mad Skills Motocross 2 features an online competition called JAM, which pits you against fellow players across the world on new tracks every week. JAM will likely be one of the most addicting experiences you’ve ever had on your mobile device.
  • COMPETITION AGAINST YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS! - Connect to Facebook, Twitter or Google Play Games to race against your friends’ best times on every track, to watch replays of their times, and to fight your way up the leaderboards. There are also leaderboards for your country, and in some markets, for your state/province/region. Social racing has never been so fun.

Change the color of your bike and your rider’s gear, and add your favorite number to your bike’s number plate. If you’re fast enough, you can even earn a virtual Red Bull helmet to let your friends know you rule! More customization options and virtual awards will be added soon.

Another Android beauty - Mad Skills Motocross 2 on BlackBerry 10


That there is a LOT of unrestrained enthusiasm for an End Roid game....Jeez James

This post Powered by BlackBerry

Wait, are we still on CrackBerry? I thought that was a website to promote BlackBerry stuff, not Android stuff.

Plus, seeing these posts is probably the best way to prevent developers from creating BB10 native apps.

And asking "would be nice, if it was fully integrated". Are you kidding me?

Screw this rubbish, I want BlackBerry on my BlackBerry. Simple.

Probably a nice game, but I chose and still choose this platform, it's called ***BlackBerry*** and not ¡¡¡AndroidAppendix¡¡¡.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

I'm behind you on that one Prem.
If you want Android and all its malware, go buy an Android phone.

You want security, solid phone, welcome to Blackberry.

Wanting an Android app and security at the same time, forget it.

Unfortunately BlackBerry didn't deliver with its promise of native apps.

The developer community that BB10 has is amazing and dedicated, but the problem is that their just aren't enough of them.

Also, the vast majority of big name devs don't seen to care to write native apps for BB10.

If BB10 had come out in 2010 things would have been different, but as it stands, this is what we have to live with if we desire a broad collection of apps.

I just got it from 1mobile market and it works fine.
I've tried to install snap but I just can't seem to do it, it's a user error for sure on my part I know!

Posted via CB10

Yep, I've tried several times, I must be doing something wrong. I'll get there in the end but for now 1mobile market is okay for me.

Posted via CB10

I wouldn't trust 1mobile.

A basic rules that all Android sites repeat over and over again is

"Stick to Google Play and Amazon. Do NOT use 3rd party app stores".

CB is doing a disservice to the community by not learning from the lessons by the Android community has learned over the last few years.

How did you get rid of the back space bar at the bottom of the screen. Every android app I put on has the Grey bar with the back button on the left. Does snap somehow do this whereas other methods don't?

Posted via CB10

I'll add to what creowano has said...

The "back bar hiding" is actually on an app by app basis.

This is cool since some apps you may actually WANT it. BB10.2.1 remembers which apps you want it hidden, and which apps you want it to show.

Do any of these android apk's or ports come without having to give up the permissions on device.

Posted via CB10

Some don't, however this one asked for too many. Deleted it before I even for a chance to try it... I don't mind giving a few permissions, just not all of them...

I'm new to Crackberry and wanted to find out if someone here can help or give some advice........when I open Telmap Navigation on my Z10, I get a notification that says that service is ending 31/03/2014 why is this???

Posted via CB10

can't say it's on blackberry 10 when it's not it's actually on android were just using it but it's not made for us.

Posted via CB10

I agree don't need android games, but to have them available will convert my wife to blackberry. She likes my z10 but doesn't like not having her apps.

Posted via CB10

I had this game earlier and personally I found it kind of boring and glitchy because it's a droid game I guess. But each to his own. I like a pure BlackBerry:)

I updated my candy crush saga from snap,now it's not working, when the game loads up, after 10 seconds the game just minimises/ dissappears. Does anyone else knows how to fix that please. I don't want to delete the game and reinstall and start it all over again from level 1. I switched the phone off and on, but still nothing Pleaseeeeeeeee helppppp someone.

Posted via CB10

Really? Complaining and asking for help about candy crush app here in the comment section on an article mentioning nothing about candy crush at all?

Go to the forum...

Posted via CB10

Pretty sure this could be the same with any apk files when updated, it just happened to be candy crash in this case. But yes really. Help.

"Android beauty" :p
Keep posting android apps, I feel like browsing Android Central, but with CB theme enabled :D

Posted via CB10

I was surprised to read this article was about a non-ported to BBW Android app. If the BlackBerry relation is that it can run on 10.2.1, then where does the line get drawn?
