Trials HD is guaranteed to get your heart racing as you put on your helmet, and rev your way through a full-featured, physics-based motorcycle racing platformer in stunning HD graphics. Tear up more than 50 tracks and test your metal in two unique game modes: Race and Skill. Create, share and download an unlimited number of free tracks with the level editor, and customize your rider to fit your personality.

Trials HD is a full-scale, physics-based motorcycle racing game. The game features over 50 mind-boggling tracks (levels) in two unique game modes: Race and Skill. Race-mode emphasizes balance, skill and control as the player tries to tackle indoor obstacle tracks with minimum faults, as fast as possible. Skill-mode extends the riding into breath-taking, extreme stunt tracks, in which explosions, crashes, and injuries cannot be avoided. Skill-games also introduce a completely new type of in-game friend scores, unseen in any other Xbox LIVE Arcade game so far.

The physics model of RedLynx’s Trials-game is taken even further, allowing the tracks to vary hugely from extreme stunt tracks to skill-based race tracks and physics puzzles. The game also has stunning full 3D HD graphics, rider customization, unlockable bikes, global rankings, and many other Trials HD specific features. While playing the game, players also get to enjoy the perplexing, hilarious, and absolutely fearless voice-overs from truly bone-breaking Trials HD riders: Brandon DiCamillo, Art Webb and Rake Yohn!

“It’s a remarkable and proud moment for us to have Trials HD as one of the highest ranked games among Xbox Live Arcade users, and one of the best-selling Xbox Live Arcade games this year. Xbox Live Arcade definitely provides an excellent platform for high-quality games like Trials HD at very affordable price point. We’re a smaller, 25-person multiplatform studio, and for us this is an excellent example of how digital download space opens up significant opportunities that might not otherwise be available for creative and talented smaller teams,” says RedLynx CEO Tero Virtala.

Trials HD also includes a level-editor with which players can create their own tracks and freely share them with their friends.

Features:

  • Tons of tracks: Over 50 versatile tracks will test your racing and stunt riding skills.
  • Level sharing: The level editor allows you to create your own levels and share them with other racers.
  • Customization: Unlock new bikes as you ride, and make your rider your own.
  • Leaderboards: Trials HD features a new type of in-game friend scores and global rankings
