Mad Skills Motocross Hits App Store, "Surprisingly Addicting"

“The best side-scrolling motocross game ever made” now available worldwide for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad on the iTunes App Store

MORGANTOWN, WV – January 10, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Swedish developer Turborilla and American motocross website Racer X Online announced today that their highly anticipated racing game, Mad Skills Motocross, has launched for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. It’s now available on the iTunes App Store worldwide.

Turning a fan-favorite genre on its head, the hyper-addictive Mad Skills Motocross plays and feels like no other side-scrolling racing game. The unparalleled physics engine and arcade-style power-ups give you a level of control that you have to play to believe.

“Mad Skills Motocross is surprisingly addicting,” said volunteer beta tester and legendary motocross and supercross champion Jeff Emig. “I have played this game way too much-hours and hours-and I feel like I’m just getting started. Video games rarely hold my attention, but that’s not the case with Mad Skills Motocross. Love it!”

Leading app-review website Touch Arcade called Mad Skills Motocross pure fun, saying it’s “similar to the classic Excitebike but with enhanced visuals and an absolutely brilliant physics system.” They went on to say, “if you’re in the market for a fast-paced arcade-style racing game it doesn’t get much better than Mad Skills Motocross.”

With a mind-boggling 52 tracks, ranging from simple to extremely technical, Mad Skills Motocross is fun for novices but deep enough for nearly endless competitive high-level play. Gamers can compete in Career mode, race against their own best times in Time Attack mode, or race against friends via OpenFeint challenges. Players can also place on the global OpenFeint leaderboards.

Mad Skills Motocross is presented with the support of four major motocross-industry sponsors: Suzuki, Motosport, GoPro, and KICKER.

Mad Skills Motocross is available on the App Store now for the introductory price of only $1.99. To purchase, go to: http://mad.mx/hcvL6U
