Lonely Mountains: Downhill is so incredibly close to being a masterpiece. The game feels like an incredibly refined mobile game that you find yourself playing for days, weeks and months on end, unapologetically getting sucked into its experience in search of finishing "just one more level today." It's a game you can pick up for 15 minutes or 15 hours and be satisfied either way. Aside from some wonky camera angles and dodgy steering mechanics at times, the game hits every mark. It's a winner in most every sense of the word.

A magnificent zen arcade that manages to be at the same time thrilling and relaxing.

The team at Megagon Industries nailed the feeling of climbing down a mountain. It’s not only about the challenge – its about the nooks and crannies, the wind, the birds. A game that’s both equally charming and very inviting for those who are into leaderboards challenges.

Lonely Mountains: Downhill is, most likely, the best BMX game released in the last few years. The attention to details is commendable and, despite some flaws, the gorgeous atmosphere and fun gameplay stand out.

This is a very different kind of two-wheeled platforming to the recent Trials Rising, but it scratches the same kind of itch – arguably more effectively, too.

A serene and pretty aesthetic sits atop a brutal but satisfying arcade downhill bike game which wears its retro stylings and simplicity with pride. A fine game for all and not just for MAMILS!

Tight, responsive controls met with highly detailed environments puts Lonely Mountains: Downhill in a class all its own. I take issue with some of the decision decisions to purposefully block your view, or how hard it is to unlock new bikes, but they’re never enough to take away from my enjoyment. The terrain, physics, visual style, and sound design are deserving of awards. This is a game that’s challenging but fair. Lonely Mountains: Downhill is wonderful, top to bottom.

Lonely Mountains is far from lonely, it rekindles a feeling of childhood. Of meeting with friends and exploring the woods, daring each other to take jumps or freewheel through water. It’s a game about being alone, by being at one with nature and the bike beneath you.

Lonely Mountains: Downhill is a fun mountain biking game that falls short of the mark due to a general lack of content and poor progression.
