Mountain Sheep's Bike Baron has been chosen as the Starbucks App of the Week, making it available for free for the first time ever for customers who have downloaded the Starbucks app.
Bike Baron is a an extreme biking game where the objective is to navigate through dangerous terrain and deadly obstacles. Our sister site TouchArcade has a review of the gameplay:
Bike Baron successfully merges an excellent interface with charming art and sound design. Those things pull you in, and then the game tries to break you. If you’re looking for a casual biking experience where you’ll spend a lot of time soaring through the air, look elsewhere. If you get gleeful at the thought of pixel-precise jumps, trial and error, and endless retries, well, you might be a bit mad. Not that there’s anything wrong with that – those are the exact things you’ll find in Bike Baron.
Bike Baron comes from the cartoon school of physics. Levels are designed with a certain wackiness, with huge jumps, loops and explosions. But the Baron is slightly more realistic in design. Like most people, he’s vulnerable to hitting his head, blowing up, smacking into ledges or crushing himself under his bike. Honestly, if you’re going to participate in this kind of extreme biking, you really ought to be made of hardier stock.
Though the game originally debuted in 2011, it has been updated several times, adding a slew of new features like additional levels and level editing tools. Bike Baron can be downloaded for free through the Starbucks app, which began offering mobile downloads back in April.

That worked. Thanks!
Good guy Atken
Not so. If you go into your Starbucks app then go to messages, the link to download is there. It will launch app store and redeem. This can be done from any network connection including 4G if the size is not over limit.
I usually end up getting a message within the Starbucks app and the download link is there. I never connect to the starbucks wifi and I get one of these free download things every week, either a song or an app.
After some research, it turns out you have to be connected to Starbucks' Wi-Fi to download. So you can only get it in-store x.x
