Mad Skills Motocross Released

Independent developer Turborilla has released its first title for Mac OS X with the unveiling of Mad Skills Motocross. Inspired by classic games of the past the sidescrolling motocross title features a realistic physics engine, 40 racing tracks, a variety of tricks to perform, the ability to play against the computer or friends, and an in-game editor.

Mad Skills Motocross is a game that brings back fond memories from the good old days. Not via ”retro” graphics, but by sheer joy and playfulness. Mad Skills Motocross is meant to be fun, quick and deep.

You will collect achievement-like stars for tricks. You will get power-ups that might seem silly and useless at first. But these power-ups will be very useful once it ‘clicks’ for you and you figure out when and how to use them.

Unlike most other sidescrolling motocross games, Mad Skills Motocross is not about puzzles and obstacles. It is about racing against the computer or against friends. Getting to the finish line in the shortest time possible is the primary goal, while pulling off backflips, frontflips, wheelies and more is the secondary goal.

The gameplay of Mad Skills Motocross has a smooth and heavy feeling enabled by a custom in-house physics engine optimised for vehicle-avatar interaction. It has the best physics and gameplay feel of all motocross/enduro games, according to most of the 35 beta testers, and they have played them all.

An in-game editor and the ability to download and race against other people’s ghosts will increase the longevity of Mad Skills Motocross. You can be engaged for hours in Time Attack mode just to shave a couple of seconds off your personal best. Sharing and showing off is a big part of your life as a madly skilled motocrosser.

• There are 40 racing tracks for you to have fun with
• Even more fun: 12 special challenge tracks
• Enjoy 5 power-ups of varying silliness
• Collect all 30 stars, and you know you have Mad Skills
• The ragdoll crashes will amaze, and sometimes horrify
• Beat all 5 divisions, the last one is called Turbocharged Division

Updates for Mad Skills Motocross will be released continuously, the development does not stop just because the game has been released.
"That is the beauty of independent games, we do not rush on to the next project. We listen to our customers and keep on adding features according to popular wishes", says CEO Tobias Andersson.

• Macintosh, Windows and Linux
• Controls: keyboard, gamepad or mouse
• Mixed 2D and 3D with OpenGL
• 1.2 Ghz, 512 Mb RAM needed
Mad Skills Motocross costs $25.95 for the full version. A free demo of the game is available from the website below.
