Bike Hero

It's Autumn. The leaves are dropping, just like the temperature. Which means it's time for Bike Hero. Somewhat inspired by this video, Bike Hero is a game to be played in your head whilst cycling along leafy paths and lanes.

The objective of the game is to run over as many leaves as possible. The faster the better. Every leaf that makes an audible crunch, soft or loud, is a point. You lose points for crashing into cars, pedestrians or park benches. As many as you feel is necessary.

A typical level might look something like this:

Bike Hero Level

And a good route through it would probably be something like this:

Bike Hero Level Augmented

Now, obviously it's not as simple as that. There are traps to be avoided. You might think this is a good section to aim for. Lots of leaves, prime for crunching. But you'd be wrong. There's a drain cover just under those leaves, perfect for wiping out on.

But if you do there's always an opportunity to make up some points with a bonus section like this:

Or an extra dangerous drunken night mission (double points):

There's a limited window in which to play Bike Hero every year, so make the most of it while you still can. Happy crunching.
