Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX is a BMX video game released in 2001 for various systems, including the PlayStation, Game Boy Color, Dreamcast, Microsoft Windows and Game Boy Advance. The game was followed by Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2. A demo version of the game is available in the options menu in the PlayStation version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
The goal of Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX is to successfully perform and combine different tricks on a BMX bike, with successful executions adding to the player's score. The player can play as one of eight different professional BMX riders, including Mat Hoffman, Rick Thorne, or Mike Escamilla. The game also uses a tweaked version of the game engine used in a similar video game, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.
In this mode the player chooses a BMX rider, an available bike, an available level, and ride for two minutes in an attempt to set a high score.
Free Ride is similar to the Single Session mode; the player chooses a BMX rider, an available bike, an available level. But instead of a two minute timer, the player can ride around as long as they want, finding gaps, secrets areas, or simply practice.
The game also features several multi-player modes including Trick Attack, Horse, and Graffiti.
