Highway Rider is a free (but ad-supported) Android motorcycle game that awards extra points for passing cars and trucks as close as possible, and the faster the better. Crashes aren't just frequent but inevitable and usually gruesome, too, so Highway Rider isn't kid stuff, but it is fun.

Highway Rider's graphics are excellent and its premise easy to grasp: Ride your bike on a public highway at highly illegal speeds, passing vehicles and obstacles as close as you can without going splat. Tilt your phone to steer; press on the right to boost speed. There are levels, … Read more
