It’s been seven years since the original iOS game, but Illusion Labs is finally back with Touchgrind BMX 2, an updated version of the handlebars-spinning, big air-grabbing bike game. Can’t stomach the idea of barreling downhill, vaulting up a ramp, and pulling off gnarly stunts on your real bike? Well, here’s the next best thing.
You’ll see only the bike on the screen, but you can maneuver it over various tracks with two fingers and then swipe when you want to spin and flip when airborne. It looks great, feels responsive, and even lets you customize your own bike in various ways. It’s like an amped-up version of those finger-driven Tech Deck BMX toys, but thankfully a lot easier to command.
