Illusion Lab's Touchgrind BMX was a unique arcade sports game for mobile, combining jumps and tricks with a control scheme designed to suit touchscreens. Seven years later, Touchgrind BMX 2 brings a whole array of new courses, improved graphics, and those classic dual-finger controls to iOS.
Mechanically, Touchgrind BMX 2 will be familiar to fans of the first; placing two fingers on the handlebars and frame, you can guide your bicycle's turns and swipe to pull of various moves when you leap off ramps. Starting with a dirt course, the sequel's tracks soont take you to desert, forest, rooftop tracks and more, complete with a number of skill-testing challenges asking you to perform specifc tricks, reach certain score amounts, and other tasks.
While you can customize your bicycle with different colors and parts or challenge friends in duels, Touchgrind's biggest strength is still its unique controls, letting you pull off backflips, barspins, and more advanced tricks with only a simple swipe, drag, or hold of the fingers.
Touchgrind BMX 2 is available to download for free on the App Store, and has in-app purchases to unlock the rest of the game's tracks in a single bundle purchase as well as unlock unlimited duels and purchase BMX crates that offer random cosmetic parts for your bike customization.
