Top 5 Trials HD-Style Games on iPhone

Best ways to somersault over the finishing line on iPhone

Trials HD is a hit arcade racer for console and PC, but it’s proved to be the inspiration for a number of fine iPhone games. While the themes vary, such games can be spotted by their side-on perspective, twisty levels, and focus on fine balance and momentum.

While in each case the speedy completion of each level is the ultimate goal, these games require you to carefully adjust the orientation of your vehicle and line yourself up properly for daring jumps. It's invariably compelling stuff.

Essentially, these daredevil games let us unleash our inner Evel Knievel, which is why we thought we'd round up our Top 5 Trials HD-Style Games on iPhone right away.

So, hop on and hit that throttle. Slowly, mind you.

Bike Baron has all the core elements that made Trials HD such a hit - crisp 3D visuals, fiendish loop-packed levels requiring deft motocross manipulation, and even a full-blown level creator.

Trial Xtreme 2 is one of two games on this list that really aims to mimic Trials HD. It's got the semi-realistic look and the precariously tacked-together obstacle course-like levels nailed down, as well as a bone-crunchingly realistic advanced physics engine.

Dream Track Nation takes the Trials HD philosophy and shifts it, as per its name, into the realm of pure, delightful fantasy. Race your car or bike through each brightly sketched level, collecting stars, pulling off stunts, and building your own dream tracks.

If you're going to play a Trials HD-style game on your iPhone, you might as well play the game made by the Trials HD developer. That's MotoHeroz, which takes the core Trials principles and applies them to a cartoon rally car world. It's as much a platformer as a racing game, mind.

If you want a near like-for-like version of Trials HD, Rock(s) Rider is your game. While our Qi score marks it out as the worst game on this list, it's faithful to the grungey look and feel of RedLynx's great stunt racer, and the 3D visuals are very impressive.
