Trials Tuesday: Week of July 3
Take a ride on the surface of Mars. Fall from great heights. Ride a Ferris wheel. Seven tracks are featured today–mostly Trials tracks, but we’ve thrown in a Supercross and Skill Game for good measure. To download these tracks by entering Track Central, selecting Get Tracks, then pressing X to search. Enter the gamertag below to find the track. Be aware that the search is case sensitive. A big thanks to the Trials Evolution community for the borrowed videos. Hit the jump to see this week’s picks.
Track: Thermal Power Plant
Local Supercross multiplayer has become a new couch-based game night candidate. And if you’re like us, you can burn through the tracks in a matter of a few hours. That being said here’s a little track that has a great flow, a slick theme, and and easy difficulty. Instead of just trying to finish it’ll be all about using every edge to get a top time.
Track: A Tour of Mars
This one falls on the harder side of medium. It’s not that hard per say, but you’ll find that your first few runs you’ll definitely finish with some faults on the board. You won’t care, though. You’ll be too busy enjoying a Red Faction-esque ride through rough terrain and a military compound.
Track: K835 ORANGINA
Gamertag: KILAR 835
For those of us without actual ninja skills, there’s K835 ORANGINA. You’ll get to perform a few pro rail rides without the need to have twitch reflexes. It doesn’t hurt that it’s a dang pretty, if not Super Meat Boy-like, track.
Track: DABS BASE JUMP
Have fun falling.
We love this track. It’s like Cave Johnson and his team at Aperture Science made a Rube Goldberg machine that required their test subjects to ride a trials bike.
Track: Yellow Boxes
They’re boxes. They’re yellow. Yeah, so we couldn’t come up with a good description. The good news is that if you like Yellow Boxes then Insanedude13 has other colored varieties released as well.
Track: Medium Ferris Wheel
Gamertag: monsta bonza
Type: Skill Game
Our only skill game this week comes in the form of a keep-on-riding challenge. For each revolution on the Ferris wheel the speed increases, making the obstacles more difficult to overcome. It’s like Rotatornator, which we featured previously, but instead of a merry-go-round it’s a Ferris wheel. That might not sound like a big change, but it’s enough to make both a unique challenge.
That’s it for this week. We have a huge backlog, but we’re looking for some feedback before we get to it. What sort of tracks are you as a reader looking for? Draw from these suggestions:
- Style: RedLynx-like, fast, physics-based, something wild, realistic, etc
- Type: Trials, Supercross, Skill Game
- Difficulty: Beginner, Easy, Medium, Hard, Extreme, Ninja (not an official difficulty)
We’re currently evaluating suggestions from last week. Stay tuned.
