Mediatonic iPhone Game Biker Blast-Off Scores High

Online game designer Mediatonic has launched an iPhone motorcycle game featuring TV presenter Suzi Perry on September 1. The game proved to be a hit, as it has scored almost 1.5 million downloads since its launch.

Mediatonic aimed to produce a free-to-download iPhone game, as part of a presenter challenge between Suzi and co-host Jason Bradbury.

Perry's download figures crushed her rival’s, as Bradbury's 'Social Beacon' registered some 4000 hits. The latter was a self-developed application for generating social network status updates without typing.

Suzi Perry is a British TV Presenter, who can be mainly seen on the BBC but does appear on other TV stations in the UK (such as Channel 5 and Discovery). Not only that she is UK’s favorite MotoGP and WSB TV presenter, but she even enjoys riding her own Honda CBR600F Sport.

"This challenge was a fantastic experience for the team and we're absolutely overjoyed that Biker Blast-Off has won,"
says Mediatonic's Paul Croft, in a release.

"What this actually proves is that not only will a free game always get more attention than a free utility, but also that production values are critical to any application's success. When it comes to small games, a keen sense of what makes a compelling, quick-fire play experience is absolutely key."

With number one placement in the overall charts for UK, France and Germany as well as a top-ten position in the US charts, Biker Blast-Off proved to be a huge success for Mediatonic.
