Anti sportbike iPhone game.
Last night my gf downloaded the free app HIGHWAY RIDER.

This is a game in which your objective is to get as many near misses in traffic as possible while going as fast as possible. The result is always a graphic crash listing all broken bones and tallying hospital bill while a pool of blood collects around your rider. When you try again your character is shown leaving the hospital commenting on how he can't be stopped from his crazy riding.

The game plays so blatantly on the negative stigma that it is funny, especially the character comments. Now I find myself hooked on seeing how high a hospital bill I can run up and how many semi trucks I can cut off Sooo bad!!

498k / 27 suckas!!
Am I going to biker hell for loving this app or what!

280 cars! I need to practice. They come at you so fast after 20!
Maybe I should do a track day before I play again.

You get into a "groove" The 1st 50 or so are hard, after that you just crash cause your not paying attention.

I was thinking this was going to be a tirade about boycotting the game developer, apple, and cell phones because of the misrepresentation about the typical sports bike rider and what an injustice that is.


Glad to see I was wrong.

The creator obviously knows nothing about bikes. You could score much higher points on a gixxer
