When writing reviews about anything on Talk Android I always try my best to sound somewhat intelligent and as knowledgeable as possible in what I’m covering. To do that I try to use technical and detailed terminology. However, when playing Lane Splitter for Android, all I could muster up was “fricking awesome”. I’m not sure if it was the dual core CPU on my T-Mobile G2X or what, but game play was smooth and steady during testing. This game is extremely fun and will have you reaching for it every free second you get.
As Jake Melton, a sport bike rider in a tux, you’ll have to do your best to avoid wrecking in an attempt to make it to your wedding on time and in one piece. Long press the screen or just quickly tap to snag a boost and wheelie forward in rapid speed bypassing crazy drivers just inching to plow you into the wall. The game is both fast paced and extremely addicting. I dare you to try it! Head on over to the Android Market for the download and hit the break for more info from the developer. You can also check out some more screen shots and a quick demo for your viewing enjoyment. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
