I have absolutely no interest in motorcycles or motorcycle racing. And yet, of all the games I’ve had on my iPhones, the one that’s survived the longest is Freeverse’s (RIP) Wingnuts Moto Racer…or MotoChaser, I guess it’s called now. It doesn’t matter, because it no longer appears to be available. What is available is SBK14 Official Mobile Game, and I have a feeling motorcycle racing fans will be happier with that, anyway.

Taking old skins and slapping them on new games is not an uncommon practice in video games. And in the world of mobile gaming, where players are more likely to follow a gaming trend than a franchise, it’s pretty much the norm. But as I spent the past couple days with a preview copy of Sonic Jump Fever, I found myself wondering if this isn’t the best use of the character yet on an iOS device.
