The two teagames swfs are basically knockoffs of the classic motorcycle shareware "sim" Elasto Mania, which I highly recommend, especially if you're looking to kill an entire day. There are literally jillions of levels out there.

BMX Park is pretty sweet.

I tried and tried and tried but I just couldn't get any damned speed up to get those stupid gold stars. I'll check out the BMX Park in a minute.

Nice! Hard to play but really nicely done and fast too!

I think my computer is too old for the teagames ones. It's like biking in a vat of superchilled mineral oil. That, or teagames writes some of the most bloated flashcode I've ever seen.

The BMX park one is fun. It even counts combos.

Oh my gosh.
I can't land anything.

Yeah, it kind of sucks, brownpau.

So it's not just me or my 0.5 ghz celeron. I think the physics of the first two games would be excellent if it actually moved. I kept trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, wondering if I had to track-and-field the up-arrow to get him to pedal faster or something.

Hey, me too. But tapping the up arrow really fast doesn't make him go at all, which is functionally equivalent to, uh, the way it works when you hold it down.

Maybe this is a special game for old people. :)

you have to wheelie to go faster (read the tips/help)

wow, my whole day was shot thanks to these games. bmxpark is more fun than most bmx video games I've paid $50 for.

I still have no clue how people get hundreds of thousands and millions of points on it though. The most I could muster was about 60k points.

Oh, BMX Park was pretty fun. I should have clicked that one first.
