Pumped BMX Flow

Pumped BMX Flow

Pumped BMX Flow rethinks the long-running Pumped BMX series as a kind of endless runner. The basics remain the same: you hold a button to pedal, let go when hurtling through the air, use a virtual D-pad to trigger show-off stunts, and tilt your phone to position yourself to land in a non-crashy manner.

The main difference compared to this game’s predecessors is in the challenges being potentially endless. The Flow mode continues generating jumps until you inevitably wipe out. There’s also Daily Run, where you take on all-comers on a course that refreshes every 24 hours.

In removing finite courses, Pumped BMX Flow has a very different feel from other titles in the series, with a much more chilled out vibe. But when you fancy an additional challenge, you can always pit your skills against players from all around the globe.
