MegaRamp´s creator, Danny Way says: " We're really stoked to have partnered with Biodroid to bring the world of MegaRamp skateboarding and BMX to life. It is crazy to play all the ramps and ride all the places we have been. I am really happy with the result."

" In "MegaRamp: The Game", we had the chance to make something we hadn't seen before in mobile gaming", shared Biodroid producer, Ricardo Flores, " Not only have we included both BMX riding and Skateboarding in a single game, but MegaRamp is one of the most realistic action sports games out there. Every trick, ramp and athlete is real and now it's in the palm of your hand!"
