Lonely Mountains: Downhill
Top Critic Average
Arcade elegance meshes perfectly with a glorious wilderness
Somehow simultaneously soothing and thrilling, this excellent arcade-style experience captures the joys of biking, nature, and competing against yourself
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.
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!
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.
Lonely Mountains: Downhill offers a pleasing mixture of challenge and serenity. It's a touch repetitive and the level design needs work, but it's a fine way to while away a rainy afternoon or two.
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.
Lonely Mountains: Downhill is easily the best mountain biking game available.
Carefully steering a cyclist down rough mountainside terrain sounds like a fun challenge and Lonely Mountains proves that it indeed is.
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.
