May 12, 2011I was hugely impressed to see this blandly-titled, low-priced game turn out to be what is without a doubt the best racing game on the App Store. The combination of physics with rocket jets results in an incredible thrill ride of a game. The levels, which all unrealistically take place on floating platforms hundreds of miles up in the clouds, look simple but are nevertheless full of detail, with multicolored tracks and structures, and shadows being cast from the exact opposite direction of the Sun, which sits in a beautiful cloudy background. In Jet Car Stunts, you are never racing against any one racer (except, arguably, trying to beat players in the high scores), but more against yourself. There are the standard "beat the clock" races, but for those who don't enjoy that as much, the platforming stages, which are more about completion than about speed, are plenty of fun. Players should have no problem learning the well-designed controls, especially with a comprehensive and easy-to-understand tutorial. Jet Car Stunts is one of those rare games that takes a poor social platform such as OpenFeint and makes it work, by having a sidebar displaying the high scores of your friends for individual levels and your record of challenges. With dozens of levels on four different game modes and optional downloadable level packs, Jet Car Stunts is a must-have, whether your a racing fan or not.… Expand
Jan 25, 2013This is without a doubt the best game on the App Store. It is one of the few, if not he only, game that is not hindered but bolstered by touch controls. It also looks simple, yet beautiful in a very Mirror's Edge sort of aesthetic. Get it then get true second one when it comes out.
