Trials-Thumb

Ubisoft's Trials series has been hitting the track for years now, challenging players to perform fantastical tricks atop their motorbikes while hurtling through the air. The franchise has typically stuck to PCs as Java and flash games, but later versions have made the jump to consoles. Now the first mobile release has exited limited geo beta and is now available for all.

Trials

The game's challenge derives from its off the wall physics-based tracks, as navigating them alone can be difficult enough without the pressure of building up high scores. Riders are encouraged to explore the world, upgrading their bikes in the process. Unfortunately there are time-based in-app purchases to deal with, where players have to either wait for the tank to refill or pony up money for gas (as though paying for gas is any fun, virtually or otherwise).

Trials Frontier is the companion game to Trials Fusion, which recently launched for PlayStation and Xbox consoles. This is a more animated, cartoony take on the series, but the crux of the game remains the same (and not all that dissimilar to another Ubisoft title, Motoheroz). Hop on via the widget below.

    Reminds me a little of BikeOrDie on Palm...I really miss that game.

  • Luke Consta

    Not compatible with my Z ultra sadly. I'd really like to try this game.

  • Lau

    Yeah...Note 3 not compatible... :(

    • alexcue

      That's odd. It's compatible with my VZW Note 3!

  • danycagiva

    finally. This game is awesome.

  • MvP77

    Not compatible with my M8

    • MikeOxlong

      Works here. Did you mess with your DPI settings? That usually ends up with those types of play store problems, at least on my nexus 5 it did.

      • MvP77

        Thanks, I did. Lowered it to 400.

    • fcjan

      Works just fine on my M7, and I doubt it's country locked.. I live in Croatia and I still can install it just fine

      • MvP77

        Got it to download after I changed my dpi and cleared my play store data.

  • IcerC

    I will not speed up my upgrades for diamonds... eh ok maybe this one time. Works great on my Moto x.

    • Anonimato

      So it does in Moto G!

    > time-based in-app purchase
    Ohh hell naw!

  • Ian Dalton

    I'm already fully addicted to this game. Thanks AP

  • Jephri

    They offer a 3 dollar IAP about 15 minutes into the game with severely discounted coins. I recommend you buy it, it supports the devs of an awesome game and is plenty to get you through the game frustration free

  • thelionk

    Nice, I'll need to see if it's any better than Trial Xtreme 3.

  • Adek Zakk

    I'm addicted to trials. I've played on every platform, now I can play on Android. Great game.
