I-play, Oberon Media’s publishing division and the world’s leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today announced the launch of the MotoGP 2010 Game for iPhone and iPod Touch.

The only official game available on the iPhone for 2010, the fantastic 3D experience features the 17 MotoGP riders including Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa, and comes with the official bikes and all 18 tracks which make up this year’s calendar. There are a host of other excellent features too which make this a must-have for the dedicated MotoGP thrill seeker.

Championship mode allows players to compete for the 2010 World Championship, with two camera angles giving amazing views and acceleration controls that replicate the lean angle of the bikes through accessible handling. Racing like a professional allows players to unlock all 18 circuits, and the game’s iPod library support function allows an individual soundtrack to be created.
