Moto Chaser (formally Wingnuts Moto Racer) is a motorcycle timed checkpoint race game with some sort of a story. Captures girlfriend? Captured cat? I dunno. But never mind the story the game is a well done racing game.

In addition to the normal timed checkpoint type racing you will occasionally be accosted by bad guys on motorcycles. Their only real job is that they are trying to slow you down by forcing you off the road. When they get close, an extra button will appear on the screen that allows you to punch them. Time it right and they will go flying.

As you progress you will travel through multiple race courses all rendered very nicely in 3D. Some of the courses include jumps — something missing in most other iPhone racing games. Complete the course before time runs out to unlock the next one. The courses get tougher and tougher to complete on time. You also have the option of riding as one of 3 different racers.

Nice feature that this game saves your progress — so you can hop right back in at a later time. Something we’ve harped on many times as lacking in so many mobile games. Also, once you unlock a track (by completing the previous course) you can play that one at any time.

Overall, this is a really nice racing game. Only thing I could really ask for would be a variety in game modes. While the story mode is well done, other options would be nice. Maybe we’ll see that in a future revision.
