I've Often Been asked how much I think an indie game should cost. Actually that's a complete lie, but for the sake of this review, let's pretend it's true. Well, in the case of Motorama - a fiendishly addictive and highly challenging 2D stunt bike game - I'd say around five quid, which by my estimation, is less than half the actual asking price.
Now don't get me wrong: Motorama has plenty to offer, sporting almost 40 vastly different levels that task you with performing stunts, traversing obstacles and collecting medals super-fast, a feat made all the harder by some spot-on physics that make your two-wheeled beast buck like a raging bull.
However, Motorama's problem doesn't lie with its gameplay, but rather in its complete lack of sheen. As a result, the game looks excruciatingly amateurish despite its charms. Add to this the over-inflated price, and you're left with a promising title that simply doesn't warrant the outlay. Pity.
