While I was hanging around in the Amazon Appstore recently I found a bit of a treat that goes by the name of Touchgrind BMX. Now this won't be for everyone but I first got addicted to the game some time ago when I used to rock an iPhone as my second device.

Now, thanks to BlackBerry 10, we can easily download Touchgrind BMX to our devices and enjoy the game for free.

The concept is pretty straight forward - you control a bike and you must maneuver around the course performing tricks as you ride over jumps. Controlling the bike is like no other game I've played before. I'll try and explain but if you get the chance to watch the video it will be much clearer.

To make the bike travel you place two fingers on it - one on the handlebars and one on the saddle. As you hit a jump you can flick the bike back or forth to perform flips, swipe the handlebars or the seat to do some spins etc. It takes a lot of practice but it's worth it.

You'll need to complete a bunch of different achievements to progress to the next level and along the way you'll also be able to upgrade your bike.

I love this game and it shall remain on my BlackBerry indefinitely. I've not tried this one on the Q10/Q5 as I suspect it won't work, but for you all-touch BlackBerry 10 users I urge you to give this one a go.

I don't know. Still not a big fan of android ports and ASKS. Games are OK but I don't even get near the apps.

Yeah, I deleted all my android apps because I woke up last Saturday morning to find something had been chewing through over 10 of data overnight which cost me a fortune. Wiped the phone and only got BlackBerry apps on now without the problems.

I did, they all came through at 7.00 in the morning one after another. By then it was too late.

Yeah, not wrong! Got slugged an extra $250 on my bill but after several calls to Vodafone I only have to pay $60 extra. But no crap android app is worth it hence I have deleted them all

It's a really good game and runs very well on my z30. Wish everyone would stop being so paranoid.

I'm stuck in the first level! I can not get the adrenaline for the 7 flips or 10 jumps. I just completed the run having flipped off every jump (I think), but still no adrenaline! Driving me crazy! Need to sleep!

Tapped and flicked from my BlackBerry Z30!

Tried it on Q10, screen is minorly cramped but the application works as smooth as a native one. No google services dependencies makes this a keeper!

Well, I guess that's why James said twice and wrote in his article that the game is free in Amazon App store...he didn't say anything about Snap, DoidStore, or 1Mobile. Anyway, was that a Z3 you were playing the game on???? That just looks amazing ... fits well in the hands as well..P

You can swipe north west and it'll go back. You don't need the bar on the bottom to enjoy the game. It takes away screen space!

Oh, what I mean is that the black bar should be kept in place, otherwise the game will not scale and work properly. But thanks for your comment!

I would really like to encourage developers to write native Blackberry apps and I'm not sure that this is the best wau to do it.

It's the wrong way. It's best to tweet to the developers, or facebook or find any way to contact them, or e-mail them.

Q10 user: works great, flawless, smooth. Just a bit cramped, but otherwise I like it. Now if only I had a modified double stylus...
