MAJOR UPDATE 05/11/2010

Monorace is 2D side-scrolling fast-paced racing game. Includes 40 levels (unlockable), 3 characters to choose and great online connectivity!

Monorace uses Openfeint and each level has its own leaderboard. After race you can compare result with your friends and challenge them in ghost race. We will also add some Achievements.

Your goal as the monobike rider is to avoid bumping into obstacles in ever accelerating game environment, use advantage of fast lines and be first in finish.

This is work-in-progress video. There is lot's of work to be done with menus, each borough will have its own background etc.




Hi,

we want to introduce you our next game in development MONORACE for iPhone / iPod touch.

It's a 2D side scrolling race game, where you drive a Monobike.
Here is a cool picture of the Monobike:



You basically drive from left to right trying not to bump into obstacles, picking as fastest route as possible.

The game will be deeply integrated with OpenFeint (ghost race and ghost challenge for example)

The in-game graphics isn't quite nice at the moment, so we won't be posting any screens from playing yet.

This guy below is Big D. He is team's mechanic. The team has 3 people, two guys and one girl (she is very hot ). You can choose one of them and go for ride!



UPDATE 19/04
Ok, you have to wait for the hot lady a bit more I would like to introduce you to Gus, team's tuner!

What do you think?

UPDATE 20/04
We decided that you have to enjoy the big fat ugly guy once more (now standing still), before we post the hot lady!


UPDATE 21/04
Finally!! She is here! Her name is Jane and she damn hot Her relationship status, orientation and age is kept secret at the moment.



We're tweaking the game's look so when we're happy with it we'll post some in-game screenshots.

I'll be posting more artworks and images soon.

Is it a game where you have a track and you have to move up/down between tracks to avoid obstacles? Like Kamikaze race (but with side view perspective)?

Well, kind of yea. You're right with the side view perspective. But it's not that similar to Kamikaze race (although share the basic idea)
