2D racing at its finest in Mad Skills Motocross 2 (pictures)

This is probably the best 2D racing game in the App Store, and you don't even have to pay to find out why.

You have to keep up

As you fly through courses, you'll soon realize that how you handle your bike on the track is the difference between winning and losing.

On your marks...

One improvement over the original game is that there is no countdown to the start. You just hit the gas and go. This is better because the difficulty of the game has you restarting races over and over, so any wait period gets annoying after awhile.

Novice track list

Each of the skill levels has 12 tracks. The ones on the right only unlock once you've completed the three directly to the left of them.

Unlock new bikes

As I mention in my review, you can unlock new bikes by earning various achievements while racing, but there are no stats for the upgrade.
