MotoHeroz is a mix of Trials-like platforming games (it's made by the same developer as Trials HD) and rally racing that makes for a fun diversion as you go for the best times. Featuring several colorful worlds to master, the game challenges you to navigate through 30 different tracks collecting coins on your way to the finish line. You can play the single-player mode and beat the posted time for each track to unlock new tracks, or you can play the asynchronous multiplayer mode to challenge your friends' or worldwide player times.

MotoHeroz is the type of game that has you restarting a track over and over to get a good time, but those who like to strive for perfection in a game will appreciate the challenge. The physics-based gameplay requires precision to get good times -- you can't just go all-out. Each track has challenges that will require you to hit jumps at the right speed to catch the next ramp. Once you've beaten the posted track time, you have the added challenge of finding a hidden chest on each level.

Once you finish a group of tracks, you move on to another world with a new vehicle to upgrade and master. Collecting coins and completing challenges adds to your cash, and you can use the money to upgrade your cars with better acceleration, faster top speed, and more powerful bonus pickups. Upgrades become a necessity quickly because beating the posted time is never an easy task. In each new world, you start from scratch with a new car type, only to begin the upgrade process again.

With beautiful graphics, tight controls, different cars to race, and the ability to challenge friends' times, MotoHeroz is an excellent racer that will keep you coming back for more.
