Dirt Rider Mayhem review - A fresh Dirt Bike game

A new addition to the family of dirt bike games was just released by nazgee. And it's awesome.

If you've thought that this genre has nothing more to offer, let this game prove you wrong. The simulation is not just very realistic but a lot of innovations were added to this game.

The game consists of 30 levels and some of them feel more like a puzzle game than just a riding one. The obstacles are well placed and sometimes you will have a difficulty getting over them. Read carefully the hints on screen!

Controls are standard, two pedals working as gas and break depending on the direction you are moving. The graphics are quite nice and the motorbike models look good too. But the strongest side of this game is definitely the gameplay.

The levels alternate between day and night. As you progress through them, more tricks are required to advance. And more and more special features are added. The physics simulation in this game is really used to a maximum. For example there are levels, where you have to ride a cart or a loose log! Reminds me of Yo Dawg meme...

Some levels also require to upgrade the bike. Dirt Rided Mayhem offers several types of bikes and plenty of upgrades including engines and tires.

And when you finish the level, either successfuly or with a crash the game takes a nice picture of you, that you can share with your friends. Here's me after a very bad crash! :)

The game is completely free, but if you'll feel like you want to advance faster or buy another bike right away, it offers you an in-app purchase of the game currency.


Dirt Rider Mayhem is the best dirt bike game I've played. It might not have the best visuals, but the gameplay will captivate you. There's plenty of levels offering hours of fun and another batch is coming soon. It's definitely a good choice for the fans of the genre and anyone else who wants a good game.
