Sidekick Cycle Cheats And Tips
Although it doesn't stand out in the competitive racing genre, Sidekick Cycle is a fun little diversion for players of all ages that gives back to the community through bicycle donations to kids. We enjoyed it somewhat, and for only a dollar, you might as well.
To help get you started - as well as what to expect from your trusty animal sidekicks - we have a few tips.
-When it comes to gameplay, you only need to worry about two functions - jumps and backflips. You'll get the most from jumps coming off ramps or mountain ridges, when you see coins and gears lined up in the air to collect. As for backflips, use these maneuvers when you're really high in the air. Otherwise, you'll hit the ground headfirst.
-Boosting is important when it comes to completing courses in the fastest time possible. You can boost two ways. The first involves collecting three or more coins in a row, which are usually strewn together over objects and ramps. The second is by successfully completing backflips. Chain the two together, and you'll create a non-stop boost for several seconds.
-When it comes to upgrading your bike, it's based more on looks than performance. Some of the later bikes, like Bone Crusher X and the Penny Farthing, offer a bit more speed. Otherwise, they're cosmetic upgrades at best. Save coins for what you need the most, like animal sidekicks, before investing in a new bicycle.
-In terms of selecting an animal sidekick to help out, it depends on what you're looking to get out of each run. If you're in the mood to collect coins, drop a dollar on Cash Koala, as he doubles the amount you pick up. Rocky Rhino will assist you in getting through rocks and logs without jumping over them; Magno Monkey attracts hard-to-reach coins; and Cherub Cheetah helps you recover from a crash.
-If you prefer, you can pay $1.99 and unlock a double-seater for sidekicks on your bike, enabling two at once. If you have Magno Monkey and Cash Koala, for instance, you'll really clean up coins for each stage.
-Costumes are secondary in the game, but we suggest going after the Indiana Jones and astronaut outfits. They'll provide a few laughs - and maybe even distract you from the fact that your driver has the same stoic expression throughout the race.
-You won't need to worry about unlocking courses. Red Rock opens up immediately, and Savanna and Desert unlock as you earn Crowns in the game by collecting all the coins and gears, and finishing in the proper time. As for the fourth, African Challenge Series, it's available when enough bikes are unlocked in the game.
