Last January, I wrote a piece about an upcoming Trials-HD like game called Rock(s) Rider from ECA Games.

Well the wait is nearly over…

Right now, you can grab a copy of the FREE lite version of the game, and the full version will launch on May 31st. It will be a universal app, complete with optimizations for the latest iPad.

Developed using the Unity 3.5 engine, Rock(s) Rider is a physics–based motorcycle trials game featuring some rather impressive console-quality graphics, music, and audio effects.

The developer, highlights the following aspects of the game which they feel make it stand out in comparison to similar games already available on the App Store:

  • Slide on structures with a modified motorbike
  • Drive a three-wheeler
  • Compete side by side with the boss in races
  • Acquire a wide range of motorbike skins and riders’ attire
  • Bet on completion of challenges in every ride (bets keep changing)

The full game will feature 40 Game Center achievements a leaderboard, more than 60 challenges, 9 different control options and 28 levels in various environments (at launch, “with more to follow in upgrades”).
