We are delighted to have worked closely with Evel’s son, Kelly Knievel, to produce a game that is inspired by Evel’s skill, flair and charisma. Young fans of motorcycle games should enjoy the fast, dynamic gameplay and will no doubt be amazed at what Evel Knievel attempted, and that he actually piloted a Stratocycle.” stated Simon Jeffrey, CEO of Barnstorm Games.
“This is a terrific action game that will allow Nitro Circus, X-Games and extreme sports enthusiasts to play as the definitive motorcycle hero on mobile for the first time. Kids and fans from the seventies who reveled in the iconic Evel Knievel outfits and motorcycles can relive that experience again, whilst retracing key achievements from Evel’s incredible history.” stated Kelly Knievel.
The official Evel Knievel App will invite players to attempt increasingly challenging jumps at famous locations showcased during Evel’s career. Before earning the right to take a jump, players must first negotiate a series of obstacles including barrels, seesaws and flaming hoops.
