Andrew A's game on Triangles BikerBrian
Yes, good company! And I agree that this is a hateful level.

It is cool to watch our runs head-to-head. Our approaches are completely different, but we finish at exactly the same time.

Congrats on putting this level behind you!

Well - having said I was done with this level - here is my final, final run!

I thought I could maybe take Silver, but the climb up to the flag is a bit slow and safe. I have beaten Mikes time (on resume), but there's just far too much luck involved to pursue this further.
Andrew A's game on Triangles Andrew A
Yes well - really, no more. Really really this time.

Just no.
Andrew A's game on Triangles BikerBrian
You're cracking me up! You just can't seem to leave it alone. On the other hand, why move on when you've obviously learned this level well.

Amazing job on the drop and smooth climb! Any ideas about how to shave another second?
Andrew A's game on Triangles Andrew A
I really am leaving it at this now.

The big bounce back after the descent is where a lot of time was lost on this run, particularly, which is down to how you land (especially with my 'throw yourself off the top and avoid as many steps as possible then deal with the consequences at the bottom', approach..).

Even when I've beaten Mikes time on resume, it's only been by a few frames, so there really isn't much slack to be had - unless you get a really freaky landing/bounce that starts you on the climb without a run up. I've had that happen once, but you then have no momentum, so the climb becomes painfully difficult.

This level really doesn't warrant so much attention - so it's getting no more.

Really, REALLY really!!!

I did a H2H with Spence's run, and despite his relatively slow drop, he actually starts the final climb before me, down to him not needing a run up, but it's at least as random going slower, and even less fun.

Not that there's any fun at all to be had in this level - which is pretty damn poor given that it's a game!

So - enough.

Absolutely no winking emoji...

Not sure it's worth pursuing Gold here. Smalls run looks pretty flawless - maybe room for a bit more rotation at the end?
Andrew A's game on Piece Of Cake BikerBrian
Very nice run! You pulled a bike length ahead of me with your turn-around at the second flag.

I remember enjoying this level.
Andrew A's game on Eruption! BikerBrian
Of course it's worth it! What else do you have better to do?

The only thing to improve on your run is the drop.

I'm back!
BikerBrian's game on Cablecar Andrew A
Wow! Very nice run!

Really good to see you back buddy!

I thought you would have overhauled me at the turnaround, as mine is a bit extravagant - shall we say, but you do it just after with a nice wheelie boost. That's quite hard to get right (I haven't done it in a legit run - yet ) - well done!

So - did you go the old iPod Touch off eBay route?
BikerBrian's game on Cablecar BikerBrian
Thanks Andrew, it's good to be back!

Yes, I got a refurbished iPod Touch (4th gen) off of eBay. I logged into the app store on it and found BoD in my "Purchases". I then went to the BoD website and downloaded my best times.

After a 4-year break, I figured it would take longer to get back up to speed, but it was just like riding a bike.

It did take me a few thousand tries to beat my best time and took quite a few more to finally take gold back with this run.

Our runs are very similar - the wheeling boost made the difference. Gaining and keeping momentum on the way back is more difficult than it looks.

Thanks for taking this gold, which is what it finally took to give me the drive to jump back on the bike!

Hmm... now what??

I still love this game. Really want to give my regards to SZ, he hasn't replied for quite some time now.

Ever seen bike or die on Twitch? Yeah, follow @parkerlreed
on twitch or "Parker Reed" on youtube - he's been playing Bike or Die in the Mu emulator, on a Nintendo Switch. Me? I still have a T|T3 for playing BoD when the time comes.


But it really is a good time for Palm OS rights now. A few of us are still enthusiastic for the Palm OS platform, and have started a bit of preservation efforts. PalmDB.net will have archives of all the Palm OS software we can find, and we've saved all the BoD levels in case the site dies unexpectedly. There's a few of us on discord that chat, and Bike or Die is pretty fondly remembered by many too. Anyone is welcome to come join us if you like. discord.gg/Nxd4US

I would also be happy to help kickstart a BoD 3.0, or even a donate towards full release of the source code.

But if you need a copy of the game (as abandonware), check out PalmDB.net.
15 Years On Bike! Kamirashi
15 years is a long time! I joined the game after the peak, but I still think this is the game Iíve put the most effort into! I was only active a short time compared to most of you, guess I played a bit too much and burned out for a while ^^ maybe Iíll pick it up again soon & #128517; It boggles my mind to see how much Andrew is dominating at the moment!

Lately I have been going through the app store to try and find another bike game that can measure up to this one, but nothing even comes close! I am however fortunate enough to still have a working device with the game installed

A BoD 3.0 would be the best thing ever!

dusted off the old gen 1 ipad and got this run thanks andrew for discovering this! feels good to no longer be #106 here xD
Andrew A vs. Kamirashi Andrew A
Well done Kam! Good to see you submitting something again

It's interesting that there is no difference at all in our runs. Leads me to suspect that there is no more to be had here - this is the fully optimised route (I did try for a short while after my gold run).

It did feel like there may be though, so it wouldn't surprise me if BB had a go and further diminished my meagre, paltry Gold stash...
Andrew A vs. Kamirashi Kamirashi
I tried for a while to improve here myself, Im under the impression that a wheel slips through walls easier if torque is applied to it, so I even tried turning around after using the rear wheel to get more momentum to again use the rear wheel to get through the wall when it otherwise wouldnt work, but it was too much of a hassle to try with a ton of different setups not knowing if it would work, so I gave up eventually ^^

There seems to be a slight blemish on your meagre, paltry Gold stash there Andrew
