Ride fast and take chances... and then ride even faster!
In the high-speed world of Light Riders, your goal is to outlast your opponents. But are you up to the task?
As you guide your personal LRV (Light Ride Vehicle) through harrowing turns, an energy trail will be left behind you that neither you nor your adversaries can pass. You must out-maneuver your opponents and wall them off before they do the same to you.
Using our game career tracking system, Light Riders will allow you to challenge up to three other players over Wi-Fi while tracking your wins, losses and other statistics. Compete vigorously with others to hold the top spot on the global leaders board if you dare!
Prepare for action at the speed of light.
- Single-player mode with advanced and aggressive artificial intelligence. Choose between one and three (1-3) AI bots to compete against.
- Multi-player mode with up to four (4) players over Wi-Fi using four (4) separate devices. You may substitute human players with AI bots.
- Career tracking and global leaders board for multiplayer matches.
- Completely polished user interface that fully takes advantage of your iPhone or iPod Touch.
- Customizable game experience. Select the color of your LRV and personalize other game features.

Not as good as LightBikes
Sorry guys, but the gameplay is better on your competition. It is smoother and easier to navigate because you have a slightly elevated view and can thus see the tracks and other bikes nearby you. In this game I basically have to play off of the map whereas in the other game I can actually play by what I can see in view. Thus I feel more into the game. What I do like is your speed control. It would be nice if there was some kind of points system that motivated you to do more than just wait for the competition to take themselves out. That's the problem with the other game as well. Keep working though. It's a great start.
Good, but can be better
The app is pretty good, but you can only play it having fun on view three. For view one, the turning is to sharp and the graphics for it are horrible. The trail seems to leave the bike and come back. View 2 is hard and annoying to play with; it shows a bird's eye of the bike. View three shows the front of the bike, which makes it easiest to play with. The game is too easy and there aren't any levels. I like how you can disable the bots to make the fight one on one, though. Still, it can be better.
You Gotta Work For The Other Two Stars
With Pankaku rapidly alienating itself with lightcycle fans, DS Media needs to step it up with their updates and add online play. No 3D lightcycle game is fast as this one is.
Another important alteration that should be made is to make the accelerator automatic, and turn the speed up button into a brake. After that, the boost might just be unnecessary.
Fine tune this game and cash that would be going to Pankaku will be going to DS Media Labs.
