As we mentioned above, the XMoto is a large number of levels. To pass most of them you will have to find and collect all zemlyanichka, then you will need to complete this quest: to find a Daisy in white color and touch her. Some of the actions of the rider imposed a strict “taboo”: it is impossible to hurt my head any block, it is also forbidden to touch the iron balls with spikes (the pests). In “taboo” and included a special region (e.g., lava).

Game XMoto is constantly updated. Of particular interest are the programmable levels. Thus, the level of Field Asteroids will meet you the whole corridor prickly balls. To get out of this “trap” by means of a jet engine. Click on the key with the letter “A” will turn on the jet engine, and your bike will jump up. Level AgAlAgA looks futuristic: you will have to Dodge projectiles, which send you space invaders. However, you will not be a passive target, you can hit enemies with your projectiles.

In other levels, your hero will have other opportunities: “intoxication”, “earthquake”. The level Skate Park has the ability to turn the bike pirouettes in the air and for it to receive points.


Another feature of the game is Chipmunk-physics. For example, if a motorcycle crashes into an object, it will lead to it sliding. If something in the game can fall, it must fall.
