BMX Jam races onto the App Store for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch

London, UK - 11 October 2012 - Independent Game Developer Vivid Games is proud to announce BMX Jam, their latest game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. BMX Jam is a sideways-scrolling time trial game that lets players attempt amazing tricks, rack up mega high scores, and unlock new levels whilst trying to complete challenges in the quickest possible time. Players can also challenge friends on Facebook to beat their best time as they race across hair-raising jumps, loops, fiery pits and more.

The action in BMX Jam takes place across four real world locations in San Francisco, Beijing, Sydney and Rio - each with its own unique characteristics, each providing increasingly fresh and greater challenges to test players’ riding skills to the max.  The aim of BMX Jam is simple:  make it across each level in the fastest possible time, collecting as many stars as possible. Each course is packed with obstacles and hazards that require the player to execute audacious tricks including front flips, bunny hops, bar-spins, X-up’s and many more. BMX Jam is packed with exciting social features to give players endless hours of gameplay, including the ability to share challenges with friends on Facebook to beat each other’s best times in ‘ghost mode’.

“The popularity of BMX is rocketing and we wanted to make a game that captures all the excitement of the sport and brings it to iOS,” said Remigiusz Koscielny, CEO of Vivid Games. “In addition to giving players a ton of freedom to perform amazing tricks, we’ve also added a host of online and social features so that they can share the BMX Jam challenge with their Facebook friends,” Koscielny added.
