    iTunes Link: Full Version Lite Version


    Introduction:
    LightBike is a fast, 3D game developed by Pankaku Inc. It is a racing game, but winning is quite different than in other racing games, although very interesting. It's not just about racing on a big speed and finishing the first, in LightBike, you need to use some tactics and strategy.

    Let's get to some details now. Basically, as you are racing around the board your bike is leaving a line, or a wall on it's way. To win you need to make all the other players crash into the line or wall, or fall off the board before you do. While the other players are driving, they leave a line/wall too, which you can crash in too. However, the lines are different since you are able to turn (read the Controls section). There are three rounds in this game, and the first player to win 3 times is the overall winner. Again, as I already said, another way a bike can lose by falling off the board. One round lasts 40 seconds, and you can choose the level [easy], [medium] or [hard] before you start the game.
    There is also a small map on the top right, which shows the other bikes' lines, so you can see them better.


    Controls:
    Before you start playing LightBike, you need to know some basic controls.
    The controls are really easy to learn and to get used to.
    - To make a 90 degree left turn, just tap the left side of the screen.
    - To turn 90 degrees right, tap the right side of the screen.
    - To activate the boost, tap the "B" in the center of the screen.


    Options:
    There are many options that you can choose in LightBike by tapping the info button, listed below:
    - Number of Battles - [one] [two] [three]
    - Boost Camera Effect - [off] [on]
    - Boost Effect - [off] [on]
    - First Player Color - [Blue] [Yellow] [Red] [White]
    - Second Player Color - [Blue] [Yellow] [Red] [White]
    - Afterimage Effect (slow) - [off] [on]
    - Smooth Camera Work - [off] [on]
    - Field Size - [M] [L]
    - Time Limit - [off] [on]
    - Vibration (iPhone only) - [off] [on]

    Game Modes:
    - One player - This is a singleplayer mode, pretty much of what I described in the introduction.
    - Two players - With the multiplayer mode, you are able to play LightBike with another person on the same device using split screen.
    - WiFi-mode - The WiFi mode lets you play on two iPhones connected to the same network.

    Other Info:
    This game is currently on a sale for $0.99 in iTunes/App Store, so you should definitely hurry up and get it. I really recommend it, it's very much worth it! However, don't forgot to try the lite version first.
    This game is on a sale for $0.99 until their new update, which will allow you to play LightBike with players over the internet, not only the ones connected to your network! The WiFi mode and the two player mode is only available in the full version, not the lite version.

    In conclusion, this is a very fun and addicting game for me. I love it, and I play it a lot. It is also a good time killer. I will soon make a video review of this game, and i will put the link [here].

    Thank you for reading my first review on iPod Touch fans, I hope you enjoyed it!

    Great review! Make sure to make the text easy on the eyes!! One other thing, add one or two spaces at the top and bottom of your text when you have images. The image description is usually placed on the bottom of the image instead of top.
