BMX is a better activity in real life than it is in video games. There have never been many good BMX games, even on console or PC. Thus, it’s a bit of a niche market. Still, it’s a fun genre if you find the right game. Mobile BMX games are a little average, even for BMX games. You won’t find anything super great in this genre. There are a few decent ones though, so here are the best BMX games for Android.
BMX FE3D 2
BMX FE3D 2 is a very average BMX game. It’s a 3D game that lets you perform various tricks. You can also design your own parks, customize your character, and play three different game modes. There is also a progression system to improve your tricks. It’s a little slow and the graphics are a little low rent. However, the game is completely free with ad support. We’ve seen games that cost money that don’t try as hard as this one. It’s a good BMX game, but not a great one.
King of Dirt
Price: Free to play
King of Dirt is a fairly popular mobile BMX game. It features decent graphics, decent controls, and a variety of character customizations. You also get a first person view, over 20 tricks, a variety of maps to play on, and a competition element. This one isn’t half bad, honestly. It has a few crash and freeze bugs and the controls are occasionally clunky. However, everything else about the game is above average. Most complaints are about the game’s compatibility. There are some newer devices that the game should run on and doesn’t for some reason.
Pumped BMX 3
Pumped BMX 3 is a 2.5D BMX game from Noodecake Studios. It has a ton of content. That includes 750 challenges, 15 characters, two dozen tricks, and 60 levels. Your goal is to do each level and complete each challenge. The challenges range from fairly easy to fairy difficult. Additionally, this game has no freemium content whatsoever. You pay the $3.99 one time and you get the whole game. We’d like to see more updates from the developer, even if it’s just to modern Android SDKs. However, this game is otherwise quite good.
Price: $3.49 + $1.49
Shred 2 is technically a mountain biking game. However, it shares a lot of elements with BMX games. You hit massive ramps and hills to do massive tricks. This game is one of the faster titles on the list. It’s a 2.5D game. You don’t have free roam but you do have a lot of opportunities to pull off monster tricks. The game includes 40 levels, hardware controller support, a decent soundtrack, and more. There really isn’t a lot to dislike about this one. It runs for $3.49 with an optional $1.49 in-app purchase if you want it. It’s not quite BMX, but it swings above its weight class in this genre.
Price: Free / $4.99
Touchgrind BMX is probably the most popular BMX game on Google Play. It uses similar mechanics to games like True Skate. Your fingers control the bike both on the ground and in mid air. You flick, drag, and swipe to do tricks. It features a variety of unlockable bikes and locations along with a replay feature for those excellent runs. Some find the controls a little clunky. They worked fine during our testing. This is definitely one of the BMX games to try first. The graphics aren’t half bad either.
