MegaRamp And Biodroid Team Up For Some Big Air Mobile-Style

September 28, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MegaRamp Events and Biodroid join forces to bring the most popular skateboarding and BMX action sport challenge to mobile devices

September 25, 2011 – Zurich, Switzerland – In the magnificent setting of the first ever European MegaRamp installation for the freestyle.ch action sports event, in Zurich, MegaRamp Events and Biodroid Sports are proud to announce they are partnering to develop a high-end 3D game that brings the full adrenaline of the MegaRamp experience to all major mobile platforms, including iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android smartphones and tablets, WindowsPhone and the RIM Playbook in early 2012.

The MegaRamp structure is the brainchild of Danny Way and was unveiled to the world in The DC Shoes Video in 2004. The first MegaRamp skateboarding contest debuted at the X Games in 2004 with the BMX event following in 2006. The world’s best athletes ride MegaRamp structures and continually push the boundaries of athletic excellence.

Biodroid Sports has already developed hit games for the App Store like Billabong Surf Trip and is currently working on a game with international football Coach José Mourinho, so is the perfect choice to take the MegaRamp experience mobile.

Extreme sports titles have a long history of making great games, ever since the first skate game arrived on the PSone. The arrival of MegaRamp changed skateboarding and BMX – with the scale of the ramps and quarter pipes bringing some incredible air and extreme tricks from the world’s best skaters and riders. The plan is to take the adrenalin and excitement of the real-world MegaRamp experience directly onto mobile. Gamers everywhere will immerse themselves in an authentic 3D MegaRamp experience as Biodroid has developed the game to include the physics of the ramps with skate and BMX dynamics in realistic settings where actual MegaRamp events have taken place around the world.

MegaRamp´s creator, Danny Way says: “We’re really stoked to partner with Biodroid to bring the world of MegaRamp skateboarding and BMX to life. It is crazy that we will get the chance to play all the ramps and places we have been. I am really looking forward to this one.”

“MegaRamp is a brand that’s transformed skateboarding and BMX events by mixing extreme speed with the laws of physics. Seeing someone land a trick on a MegaRamp makes you realise just how insanely brave and skillful those guys are, so we are very proud to be working with them to develop games that will give a real flavour of what it means to challenge gravity and yet keep total control – all from the safety of their smartphone”, says Diogo Horta e Costa of Biodroid.

In terms of development, the game is still in early stages and will have many spectacular and innovative features, including:

- Use your fingers to perform all of the real live tricks performed on a MegaRamp
- Play every MegaRamp structure ever built, from Mini to Mega and other variations
- Enjoy the magnificent settings of real world MegaRamp events
- Choose between Skate and BMX or play both for extra thrills
- Customize your in-game character, bikes and skateboards
- High-end 3D graphics optimised for smartphones and tablets
