The idea behind it all is simple; move a bike from one side of the course to another, over varying obstacles. With such a simplistic gameplay style, what Trials gives the player is immediate access to the ability to understand how to play the game. The controls are so simple that anyone can pick them up and just begin to play. With only four buttons in common use to complete a level, users of all skills levels should be able to enjoy the game.
There is a great amount of satisfaction to be had from just completing the levels, but for the more skilled player, there are the medals. The typical gold, silver and bronze can be attained by completing levels in certain times and with certain amounts of restarts.
