PNG - 3.8 kb It is a question that regularly crops up on trials forums around the world: “when will someone make a biketrials game?”. Well, the answer to that question is “now”. Guillermo Marín, the talented Spanish street rider and anglophile, has been working on a flash-based biketrials game for some time now and he’s just finished the game and made it available for download!

Guillermo has obviously spent hours crafting the levels, bikes and movements using flash skills that he began learning in college and has perfected in his spare time, and all that work has paid off; it looks great! The game starts with a How To level in which you can learn all of the skills you’ll need to negotiate the various levels, which will be based in Barcelona, Sheffield and on several of Guillermo’s own sections that he has designed himself. The Sheffield and Barcelona levels have been very accurately recreated and you will recognise some famous street spots from videos by the likes of Craig Lee Scott (who, incidentally, is the rider in the game) and Guillermo himself. The game features three basic moves, the tap, gap and sidehop made famous by the likes of Craig, Neil Tunnicliffe et al, which you can put to use on a variety of obstacles. Taps are quite difficult to get the hang of, but are all the more rewarding once you nail them. We’ve only had a quick play, checking out each of the levels and bikes (there are six available when you start the game, with a hidden bike that becomes available once you complete each of the three stages), but we found it very enjoyable and addictive to play and will surely spend hours on it in the future (when we should be working, no doubt!).

We caught up with Guillermo and he told us a bit about the project:

JPEG - 17 kb I started making this game some years ago with flash 5, a simple game with many biketrials moves, but I too lazy to finish it and I wasn’t very good at programming. Some people were asking about trials games on Trials-forum.co.uk recently, so I decided to have another go at finishing the game.

It needed a lot of work, not least because I needed to draw new bikes to bring it up to date. It was also quite a difficult task as this is not a typical trials game like the moto trials ones available online, the moves in this game are more complex; I wanted to recreate exactly the moves used in biketrials, which was very difficult to programme (at least for me!).

Now, after a lot of work, I’ve finally finished the game and it’s available to play! I wanted to put it online, but it doesn’t work so well on the sites I tried, so I’ve created a downloadable .exe file for now.

I’d like to thank Tribal Zine’s English administrator Ben Swales for the help with translating the text and Craig Lee Scott for allowing me to include him in the game!

Download the game!

Here’s a link to the Trials-Forum.co.uk topic that Guillermo created, with various download links for the game ( 11MB). Some of them may be oversubscribed, but there are plenty of them , so choose one, download the game and start playing!

Here’s a short teaser video of Guillermo playing the game, released a couple of weeks ago…

Enzo Sisti-zeppieri, a French trials rider who goes by the name of StreetTrial38 on the internet, has played the game all the way through and has created this video, showing all of the levels and moves. Great work!
