    I just got this game on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/16600/). You can get it on XBLA too, I think its essentially the same game. There's a demo too. It's been out a while.

    Very addictive game. D:

    I recommend using a 360 pad, though some may prefer the keyboard method. Basically you have to get the bike from one end to the other without killing the rider. It does get very tricky very quickly, and some of the times people have achieved are ridiculous (as with any twitch/skill based game).

    Anyone else played it?

    the XBLA-version has an editor for new tracks
    I'm not sure if it had any additional gametypes beyond the basic 'trial'-run (ie : get from start to finish as fast as possible) ...

    Interesting idea, but a bit too thin/simple for a real game and not exactly the kind of game I'd pay to play.

    Yeah, it is just a cheap timewaster really. A decent one though.

    JaFO: It does have separate modes, though they're smaller mini-games of sort, in Trials HD on XBLA, at least. I've already lost several hours in building a little level of my own. Really easy and pretty straightforward. I quite enjoy the game overall, but Medium to Hard is a pretty sudden increase in difficulty, and then Hard to Extreme is just a kick in the teeth. Don't exactly understand why but there's some serious player-hating in this game.

    Still, lots of fun.

    I take it easy on the accelerator going up steep ramps, if you just go flat out, yeah you will flip backwards. Try doing it in small bursts until you get a good balance and then just speed up the rest of the way.
