Cycling App of the Week - Icycle: On Thin Ice

Public indecency? Penny Farthings? This game is as weird and as entertaining as it sounds!

What is it? 

What isn't it? This game, that we can only assume was dreamed up after a heavy hallucinogenics session, sees the main protagonist Dennis cycling in the buff through numerous unusual environments in an attempt to woo a female character, and you must navigate him through various course obstacles along the way. The object of his desire takes on various forms throughout the game; one time it's a snow woman, in another instance it's a naked half-woman half-fish creature.  

How can it help me? 

It can't help you, but you can certainly help Dennis reach his destination quicker and find love before he catches frostbite. As game creators Chillingo say: "Help Dennis find love in an icy world that’s not as frozen as it first seems. Ride through collapsing cities and fairgrounds, hop over dormant battlefields and explosive wedding cakes, float down dark ravines, through hostile shopping centres and over a skyline of legs, while poor Dennis is teased and taunted to the fringe of despair." 
 

What makes it unique? 

As far as we know, this is the only nude cycling love story simulation game on the internet. The graphics are also surprisingly good. 

Where can I get it? 

The game is now £2.99 on both the iOS store and Android - watch out for in-app purchases if you're letting the kids have a go.  

Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
