Mad Skills Motocross 2 Cheats And Tips
Stick with us and you'll ride like a pro.
If you played games like Excitebike or RedLynx's Trials games, then you should get into Mad Skills Motocross 2. This arcade-style racing game pits you against both AI and human opponents in a race to the finish, where one blundered landing might cost you everything.
Fortunately, that won't happen, because we're here to help. Here are some tips to make you ride like a pro.
Don't Fool Around Unless You Have Room
Throughout each race, you'll have the opportunity to show off with back and front flips, as you would in RedLynx's Trials game. However, the real goal for each race is to finish first. You should hesitate showing off unless you have a comfortable lead, with your rival driver being at least 20 or so meters behind you. At that point, if you've got some air, don't be afraid to show off with a flip. Just make sure you've got the leverage to land properly, because a crash can easily cost you the lead.
Landings are Everything
How crucial are landings in Mad Skills Motocross 2? Very. In fact, if you land on a front or back wheel wrong, you could lose just enough momentum to give your opponent the opportunity to pass by. Use the front and back arrows to adjust how you're going to land, and make sure you nail it as perfectly as possible. Doing this will allow you to keep up the current speed you have, so you can continue your racing domination.
Steep Hills? Relax, They Can be Conquered
With steep hills, the important thing is to not freak out. If you see one coming, adjust accordingly, turning your bike so that it'll land on the side of the hill. If you're coming at it with a good speed, you should be able to continue your run without losing speed.
In addition, keep an eye on jumps leading into the hills. Sometimes you'll get enough speed that you won't have to worry about adjusting, and will fly over with ease while your opponent tries to figure out what's going on. Pay attention to the course design, and if necessary, restart a couple of times until you get used to how it's laid out. There's no penalty for doing this, so don't hesitate.
How Does the Brake Work?
Very seldom do you need to use the brake in Mad Skills Motocross 2. Speed is the name of the game, so don't even worry about tapping it. Instead, let your foot off the accelerator if you need to slow down a bit, then gun it again when you're in the clear and back on the road.
There are also sections with small speed bumps chained together where you might be tempted to slow down. Don't bother. Instead, try to turn your front wheel up a little bit, and you'll coast over these sections with ease. Make sure you adjust to being back on two wheels once you pass through these sections, though.
Perform a Wheelie Only When You Need to
The wheelie can be a nice little speed boost when you're racing against someone, as you don't have to worry about dragging your front wheel. However, keep in mind that you can lose balance rather easily, especially if you're coming up on a hill. Only use your wheelie if you've got a good straight piece of track to drive on. Even then, proceed with caution, because if you lean too far back, you could eat road.
Don't Worry About Paying for Bikes or Boosts
Mad Skills Motocross 2 provides the option to buy bikes and rockets to help give you a speed burst for anywhere between $0.99 to $5.99 through in-app purchases, but you really don't need to spend money. Your bike gets enough speed as it is, and rockets could easily send you careening out of control. Stick with your current model.
As for unlocking bikes, you'll be able to do this while progressing through each race. Just keep at it and you'll have a full garage in no time.
