Moto X Mayhem Free
The first app of the day is Moto X Mayhem Free.
I have been playing games like Moto X Mayhem Free right back to the days of the original gameboy. Moto X Mayhem Free is the latest (and not the only) iteration of a long stream of 2d side scrolling motobike games. Moto X Mayhem Free doesn't bring anything remarkably new to the formula, but what it does bring, it does well.
Essentially, the objective of Moto X Mayhem Free is to get to the end of the level, through accelerating, braking and tilting, without your cyclist landing on his head. One of the best features of Moto X Mayhem Free is the highly configurable control scheme, allowing the user to do away entirely with tilt controls (which I usually can't stand) and rely on sliding motions with hands on either side of the touch screen.
All in all, Moto X Mayhem Free is a great game, with a large number of free levels, addictive gameplay, and a cheap upgrade cost if you decide that the free version is not enough.
Do you have what it takes to compete in the original mobile motocross challenge?
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline
Today's second app of the day is Asphalt 6: Adrenaline.
I have been playing the Asphalt racing series since the days of my old Symbian s 60 mobile device. Over that time the game has been through numerous, and even attempted ports to mainstream handheld gaming devices. Mobile (or tablets) though, is where the Asphalt series belongs, and for 99cents, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline will make a great addition to any android users game collection.
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline features many of elements of more "full" console racing experience, but in the comfort of your hands. Importantly, as with Moto X Mayhem Free, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline allows you to do away with tilt controls and rely entirely on the sides of your touch screen for a more precision racing experience. Again, this is a massive plus for me.
In the words of the developer:
Race the world. Feel the adrenaline.
