Lonely Mountains: Downhill has established itself as a success story for publisher Thunderful and developer Megagon Industries, passing 2.5 million players across platforms. It's pretty darn decent on Switch, too, and has had a number of notable updates and 'seasons' over the last couple of years.
The mountain biking game - which can be both challenging and a chilled-out time - has now confirmed a return for a previous season. It's launched a 'season recap' for Flower Power Daily Rides, which draw inspiration from the swingin' 60s. As you'd expect it goes hard on bright colours and groovy language.
Players wanting to feel the good vibrations of the mountain trails will be totally stoked to see all the funky outfits and accessories that they can unlock:
- Party like it’s 1969 with the Woodstock outfit.
- Experience being the legendary headline act with the Jimmy outfit.
- Don your flared dungarees and chillax with the Groove outfit.
- Spread the love with the Flower Power paint job, giving your bike a funky basket filled with a bouquet and flowers wrapped around your frame.
- Two backpacks can be unlocked too! Make love not war with the Peacebag or get in the hippie spirit with the flower Garland - right on, man
Daily Rides is a cross-platform daily leaderboard competition. Each day a trail will be selected randomly, complete with new obstacles and gameplay modifiers. The 4 week season offers up a new theme with unlockable cosmetic rewards for participants. Do you have what it takes to dominate the season? Get riding and see if you can rise to the top of the leaderboard!
It could be a good time to hop back into the game - let us know in the comments if you've ever tried this one out on Switch!
Great game but I do wish the resolution was a little better on Switch and didn't look like there was Vaseline on the screen. I haven't played since launch though, so maybe it's patched up?
Nice so this is basically Virtua Racing but bike style then. Should had called it Virtua Biking.
I played this a lot for a few months. It is a really fun game and a great concept. the game also encouraged me to get a new bike and start biking again since I was having so much fun. Highly recommend this if you are on the fence.
I enjoy this game. One of the Best aspects, that I wish more games would embrace, is that there is no time limit or number of crashes allowed. But there are challenges.
I think that's the perfect way to do things.
You can go into a course completely blind and just mess around, explore, have fun or take it slow or anything you want. Or you can really learn the routes and shortcuts and aim for best times or zero crashes etc and hit those challenges.
I picked this game up on sale recently and played around on the first few trails. It's super relaxing and easy enough for my 4-year-old to play (not, like, WELL, mind you), and I could easily see it becoming an obsession with all the missions and unlockables and whatnot. It's already been bumped to the top of my backlog, but seeing an event like this makes me want to just jump right in.
