The story is grim and gritty. You are part of a jetbike gang, and the cops are coming. All of the branches are short, and they all paint out a dystopian world of grime and flame and bad relationships. It is a vivid world.
There is not much of a strategic element; choices are often a coin-toss. This would be annoying in a longer story, but Jetbike Gang is short enough that replaying is worthwhile.
(Spoiler - click to show)I played it about five times until I got to a winning ending.
Well worth playing. One of the high-water marks of Twiny Jam.
This game slants toward the gritty and grim, but even then there's space for some (very indirect) wordplay and a surprising amount of branching.
