In a world where chaos reigns and might makes right, those who stand alone don’t stand for long.
Tall Bike Joust features six post-apocalyptic cityscapes in which players compete in Quick Jousts and longer Tournament battles to increase their ability to defeat opponents. Players can choose and name their avatar, modify their attributes and customize their bicycles. The supreme confrontation is to joust Doyle, the official Tall Bike Jousting Champion of the World, to secure the top spot and achieve eternal fame.
THE BACK STORY
The world reaches peak oil in the year 2012; the means to produce enough oil to satisfy global demand has failed. Going to war to gain control of oil fields in the Middle East, the U.S. and other countries enter an extreme recession and automakers go out of business. In response, people turn to bicycles as their main form of transportation.
Meanwhile, a powerful corporate entity hacks into U.S. government computers and takes control, unleashing an arsenal of nuclear weapons that destroy the largest cities in the world. Not knowing who to blame, every nuclear-capable country responds in a dramatic fashion by dropping bombs on its most likely adversary in retaliation.
What remains when the game begins in 2021 are several strongholds controlled by corporate entities, housed within skyscrapers dotting the post-apocalyptic landscape. Each stronghold can produce enough food and resources to sustain a moderate population. Outside the strongholds are groups of nomadic survivors—anarchists that travel on mutant bikes. They survive on trash from the nearest stronghold and rudimentary farming while using their wits and creativity to fight other bike clubs for territorial control.
Lots of fun (5 STARS)

super fun and addictive...and i hum the songs in the shower.
so, given that i'm not really a gamer or avid cyclist (i own a bike and love it, but i don't know about fixing it and all that jazz), i didn't think i'd get as into this game as i did. i got it because a friend recommended it to me and...i am now the TALL BIKE JOUSTING CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!! at least, in the world of my ipod touch. i've been playing it nonstop on the subway, in line at the grocery store, waiting for movies to start. it's great because the quick jousts and tournaments are short so you can get a few rounds in if you don't have much time, or, if you're on a roll, you can play for extended periods of time and just go through all the different cities. i'm really a fan of winning new stuff in the game, and there's a small joy in welding new parts. i won the stuffed bunny lance attachment the other day and i was so excited about it! clearly i've been sucked in. anyway, it took me a few tries to get good at the game. so for those of you who are complaining that you can't get the circles to turn green...it's just because you're not practiced enough yet. also, i find the controls easy and unique, while the music (love that japanther) is upbeat and fun. all in all, no complaints! a solid game for a good price.
I loved jousting in a bunny suit.
The graphics are amazing. The characters are fun. The integration of the pedaling, accelerometer, and smart sensors are innovative and unique. I've never seen anything like it. The game was challenging -- it took me a couple hours to achieve greatness and become "The Tall Bike Jousting Champion of the World!" But the game had multiple locations to joust in. I was able to rank up my customizable avatar and weld / recycle parts of my broken bike. There's even a leader board that shows other players near you. I was never bored. I'm looking forward to Peer-to-Peer jousts. Bring it. BRAVO, TALL BIKE JOUST!
A few glitches, but still worth it.
It may have a few glitches, but it is still a very impressive and enjoyable game. Exiting and restarting the App will fix them every time. Worth every penny. I look forward to more from Bike Club Games.
