Finnish game development house RedLynx has just submitted their latest title to the App Store, a version of their popular PC and Mac game Monster Trucks Nitro for the iPhone and iPod touch.

The developer's feature list includes:

  • Real Monster Trucks physics with iPhone
  • Includes multiple camera modes including Holographic Pro camera mode
  • Extremely powerful RedLynx Monster Truck and Miniclip monster Trucks
  • Extra achievement Trucks Schoolbus Monster Truck and Formula Monster Truck
  • Thrilling tracks with medal achievements including The Loop, The Gap, Nitromus oximus and many others
  • Top hiscores lists for each track
  • Gesture camera controls

See RedLynx's iPhone game trailer video.

Monster Truck Nitro should be appearing in the App Store in the next few days and will be priced at $1.99.  In the meantime, see the playable 2D Flash demo and the free, trial 3D Windows demo on the product site.

    Ok - now I think I finally understand why there is no Flash on the iphone, or if there ever will be it will be mercilessly hobbled: Why would someone pay $1.99 for a game that they can play on a browser for free?

    1. Because it's only $1.99, and...
    2. Flash sucks!

    christopher, the Flash version of MTN is only a 2D demo. What's being offered on the iPhone is much, much closer to the desktop version (which is pretty great, BTW).

    "christopher, the Flash version of MTN is only a 2D demo. What’s being offered on the iPhone is much, much closer to the desktop version (which is pretty great, BTW)."

    plus youd have no way to control the flash games out there without a keyboard with arrow keys!!! DOH!

    hmm
    i guess with all the turning this is not a good game to use with headphones, and so not good for the touch.

  • Tiltboy

    looks dam cool also on iphone. the mac-version is great, the physics especially. was thinking myself already earlier that with this advanced physics, this is the game that should go for iphone. will definitely try.

    At this point, does a headline really need to say "for the iPhone?"

    The rotation makes me feel a bit sick too. I hope they include a virtual button option. I would love to get this.

    Yeah, this game was fun ..but "Trials 2: second edition" is the one I want to see converted. That game is wicked fun. (In a similar way to Bike or Die ..but rider-injury is a bit more comical and, well, it's trialbikes! and they're just cool.) :)

    Lots of fun youtube clips of Trials 2 about.

    Looks promising even if I'm not putting big hopes on the control scheme.
    Definitely Trials 2 would be great ! I don't even understand why they pull out this one instead. Not so great on the PC to me, lacks some controls to master. Even for 8.90 € it feels a bit like a rip off at 1.90$ why not.

    Wow, the game looks really nice. I like the control scheme - although headphones would be definitely a problem.

    i agree with you jay. when i saw the vid and the controls i became less enthusiastic. this game won't be good for people who like to lie down while their playing games. and also i'm surprised the dev didn't put better graphics in. their decent enough but on the pc or mac version there is a big diffrence. im sure they could have perfected it better on that.

    You most certainly do not have to turn your iphone/iTouch around when looping. At least not if the game has a normal physics engine that doesn't turn the entire world upp side down and thus shift gravity. They did the turning thing in the video to make it look kool. It looks pretty advanced I hope it will go just ass smooth on the iphone as on the 2:gen iTouch (cos it´s faster).
