Mediatonic iPhone game Biker Blast-Off lands huge download figures with The Gadget Show
The challenge also tested the popularity of social networking applications against free-to-play games, with the latter proving that games enjoy a lot more attention from the iPhone install base.
The challenge tested whether small social apps or small free games were more potent on the iPhone, and with Biker Blast-Off landing almost one and a quarter million downloads, and the indie developed Social Beacon app receiving just over 4,000, the message seems clear.
"This challenge was a fantastic experience for the team and were absolutely overjoyed that Biker Blast-Off has won," says Mediatonic's Paul Croft.
"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 applications success. When it comes to small games, a keen sense of what makes a compelling, quick-fire play experience is absolutely key."
