Rock(s) Rider - HD Edition [Side Scrolling Motorcycle Game with console graphics]

Hey everyone!

We are happy we can announce a release of our new game, Rock(s) Rider - HD Edition. The game will be available on the AppStore on 3rd September 2015.



You come to be in the middle of the underground motorcycle race led by the boss in five industrial environments. You overcome obstacles and movable traps (catapults, lifts, ramps, hunting fiery flames, falling traverses, car wrecks etc.) in 64 levels. You look for bonus rewards (15 graphic skins, parts of a motorbike, 15 outfits for the rider etc.) and try to beat more than 150 challenges. By managing tricks and winning in bets with the boss, you can get extra points. You will enjoy races side by side with the boss, sliding with the motorcycle on metal constructions thanks to steel bars welded on wheels or handlebars of the motorbike. By unlocking bonus tracks, you can gain a crazy ride on a trike or rising to the top of the factory chimney with the Hill Climbing motorcycle. The most difficult parts of the race can be easily mastered using Slow Motion Zones, Safety Cage System or Nitro Oxide System.


8 extraordinary features which differs Rock(s) Rider - HD Edition in its category:
• Unique console graphics
• Sliding with the motorcycle on metal constructions thanks to steel bars welded on wheels or handlebars of the motorbike
• Adrenaline ride on a trike
• Rising to the top of the factory chimney with the Hill Climbing motorcycle
• Highly sensitive physics of the motorcycle
• Rock soundtrack including 17 full tracks ideal for headphones
• Better protection against crashes with help of Safety Cage System
• Slowing down the reality thanks to Slow Motion Zones









The HD edition is based on highly detailed 3D models and brand new textures with double resolution. We have granted funs’ wishes of our former game and have brought Ragdoll Physics and highly sophisticated physics of the motorcycle. Many new effects have been added and more than 80,000 other objects have been placed to the all environments (200,000 objects in total). The game is primarily designed for the newest iOS devices where runs at 60 fps.

Rock(s) Rider - HD Edition ($2.99, In-App Purchases available) is compatible with iPhone 4s, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPod touch (5th generation) or newer.

Hi Back2funk, it's good question!
The price is $2.99. None of In-Apps is needed to finish the game. We've mentioned the price in the article now. Enjoy the game in the beginning of September...!

Loved this game and still play the original today. However, the new version looks as if it is just an updated version of the original. Let me say first, I am not discrediting the hard work invested and the amount of time spent on the game but the video looks exactly like the original from a few years ago. I always hoped you guys would make another Rocks Rider game...just didn't think it would be the exact same one.

Maybe I am just blind...help me see!!!

Dear CST511,

thank you for your interest in our game! We really appreciate it!

Let's us to explain why we have brought the HD edition now.

The old Rock(s) Rider game was released in May 2012, when the newest device was iPhone 4s with its limits in performance. Therefore we are able to bring the quality of the game as we imagine it should really look like until now, when new devices (as iPhone 6) enable it. The older devices are not able to manage to run the new game because of its requirements for the performance of devices.

Thus we were able to add much more detailed 3D models, brand new shaders and textures with double resolution just now, also as Ragdoll Physics and more sophisticated physics of the motorcycle than before. You will feel the big difference in physics of the motorcycle after a few seconds of your gameplay. Many new effects have been added and more than 80,000 other objects have been placed to the all environments. Most of the added objects are dynamic and the rider flings them while riding the race. The added effects, e.g. hunting fiery flames activated by riding out the laser gates and setting fire to the environments or possibility to slow down the reality by Slow Motion Zones, are not able to run smoothly on the older devices.

Now the game is primarily designed for players who want to profit from possibilities of high performance of their newest devices. For example, the game runs on iPhone 6 Plus in full HD resolution at 60 fps and it brings console graphics.
