Bike Unchained is Red Bull’s entry to the mobile game space, and it’s now available as a free download for Android and iOS devices alike. In this exciting new game you get to travel – no, make that shred – through sweet trails, collect bikes, build up a crew, and even make it to the mountains as you ride against the game’s antagonists, Team Praedor. The bike trails in here combine Enduro, Downhill, and Slopestyle mountain biking, and you can get to do a whole lot of tricks and stunts apart from the usual biking. You’ll get to do all that in 60 tracks located in three real-world locations, namely Whistler, the Alps, and Japan.
That’s a quick look at the game and what you can expect, but when it comes to actually riding your bike and performing creditably (or better), what you’ll need to check out are our compilation of Bike Unchained tips, tricks and hints.
1. Timing Is Everything
Look at the green lines on the track, as these will be your aids in determining whether you should flow or let go. The most obvious way to go about this would be to flow when you’re on a downhill slope, and to let go when there are inclines or anything that suggests you’ll be going up. Timing is very important in this game, especially when it comes to your flowing technique.
2. Keep Doing Tricks
Aside from timing being very important, performing tricks is another thing you’ll need to perfect in Bike Unchained. Your adrenaline meter, after all, rises with each aerial trick that you do. And once you’re at max adrenaline, you can significantly improve your bike’s speed and jumping. Even when you don’t see any full ramps, keep doing those tricks as often as possible. And as a bonus tip, be sure you’ve pressed the flow button right before you land – this will allow you to hit the ground smoother without sacrificing your speed.
3. How To Deal With Uphill Climbs
At the start of the race, you’ll have to keep tapping on the flow button so you can get some momentum going. But it’s also possible to do this the moment you see an incline. Don’t wait until your biker has made it up the hill; keep tapping the flow button so that your biker can pedal faster and make it up the incline quicker than you normally would, or quicker than it would be if you waited.
4. Keep On Practicing Till You Beat Your Time
Each level has Bronze, Silver, and Gold reward categories, and the faster your time is, the more likely you would be of getting Gold rewards. Make sure to check the time to beat before you start each level, and remember that you can get separate Bronze, Silver, and Gold rewards. Yes, you can get all three of these rewards, but you’ll need a lot of practice; be patient and you’ll be reaping Gold rewards and winning obtandium, which is the game’s premium currency. (Winning Gold rewards is the only way you can get it!)
