Trials HD developer RedLynx has unveiled its next effort – an ambitious iOS effort called 1000 Heroz.

It's a physics-based platformer with a twist – every 24 hours for 1000 days a new hero is introduced, along with a new level to navigate and new relic to discover. Old levels and characters will remain playable after they've been introduced.

There will be daily time-based challenges too, with each stage boasting its own leaderboard. RedLynx also promises you'll be able to create a Custom League to challenge your friends.

"We've designed 1000 Heroz to last for a thousand days, so whether you play every day or play only occasionally, there's always something new for you," explained RedLynx creative director Antti Ilvessuo. "It's a new idea, where you can get your daily dose of Heroz right from the start."

"1000 Heroz has some of the physics-based timing of Trials with the jumping of a Mario-type game. Your character really runs with their feet. It's a blast to play every day."

1000 Heroz dashes onto the App Store some time in April priced at 59p for the iPhone version or £1.19 for the iPad.

RedLynx has one other project on the go too - WiiWare racer MotoHeroz. Take a look at Tom Bramwell's recent hands-on preview for more on that.
