RedLynx Reveals MotoHeroz for WiiWare

September 1, 2010 (Helsinki, Finland)— RedLynx (redlynx.com) today unveiled its latest creation: MotoHeroz, a brand new game for Nintendo's WiiWare TM service.

MotoHeroz takes RedLynx’s established expertise in fast, physics-based gaming and expands it into an exciting, racing adventure, delivering a unique, side-scrolling platform racer.

Players race, chase, and rally their way through a rich, challenging world, competing against their friends for the fastest times, entering daily races, and hunting for secrets and coins.

The game has three main modes: a surprising single player adventure, a four player local multiplayer mode, and a new type of daily online competition, in which a new online track opens up daily to give players fresh opportunities to reach the top of the Leader Boards.

"With this game, we are taking our expertise in downloadable content, addictive gameplay, and the racing genre, and adapting it to the strengths of the Wii TM ," said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx. "The result is a unique, appealing game that combines racing game thrills with platformer charm," he added.
