Joe Danger was released in September 2014 by British indy Dev Hello Games. An action-packed side scroller which combines elements of racing and platform games. You control the daring protagonist daredevil and traverse insane, timed levels, with the goal of completing enough objectives to advance. Joe Danger comes across with much comical cheer, with the main focus being on stunts and keeping top speed.
The sequel, Joe Danger 2 was released Jan 13,2015 for the Ps Vita, and is everything the original was and tons more. Joe is now working with a movie director in Hollywood and is performing all the stunts on set of a new project. This movie contains mostly cliche action stunts involving chase scenes on various vehicles including motor carts, skis, and bikes. Over 10 hours of exclusive content,100 levels, 40 hours of gameplay and 20 vehicles await you!
"Joe 2" is very pretty to look at,plenty of bright sharp colors. Graphics are solid and crisp. The variety of costumes and alternate characters is impressive,some very familiar faces "Sackboy", "Minecraft Guy",among others,and of course Joe himself,with a different costume to match every set he is on. Controls are smooth as silk, very easy to start stop/reverse, boost , and of course do tricks,including flips etc. Whether you are on the ground or in the air, all movements can be handled with a pro level of precision. Aside from the obvious smashing into a wall, the only mechanic in the game that puts you at a slight risk of failure is the occasional "balancing act", having to keep from leaning too far foward or back, but those of you who have played any Tony Hawk game are already familiar with this. The games music scores sound just like a cheesy 80s action movie (or like you are on the set of one). But there's a certain undeniable charm within that cheesiness.
With the exception of crash & burn, pretty much everything you do earns you bonus points. Tricks and combos earns you bonus points and build up your boost meter, and speed earns you an even higher bonus. Keep landing flawless runs to add to your bonus multiplier and blow everybody in the leaderboads out the water!
Adding to the already high replay value & customization options is the "Movie Maker" which allows you to create,edit and share your own stages with other players as well as play your creations yourself!
Good: Graphics,various choices of costumes/characters,fluid controls,replay value, tons of bonus content.
Bad: in certain situations/vehicles you can lose balance easily if you land awkwardly or lean too far.
