Blending a comic book story with fast-paced motorbike racing, SXPD: The Rookie is the new game from non-profit publisher OneBigGame.

Directed by Earthworm Jim designer Dave Perry in collaboration with Little Chicken Games Company, SXPD’s gameplay draws inspiration from the classic ZX Spectrum game 3D Deathchase.

Taking the handlebars of an SXPD police bike, you race through the streets of the new 52nd American state of New Royal, trying to take down outlaws with missiles and machine guns.

The black-and-white 3D tracks that your bike speeds around could have fallen straight from a comic book panel, with occasional flashes of red and blue colour injecting some colour into the proceedings.

The 48 page digital comic which delivers the plot was created by artist and writer Duke Mighten. It follows the all-female SXPD police force as it attempts brings order to the lawless state.

SXPD: The Rookie will be racing on to iPad this May for £1.49 / $1.99.
