Unusual game design, one-finger controls
Unbalanced difficulty, bores you really quickly
100m Stunt for Android aims to be a retro arcade classic. It does capture some of that era’s charm, but the game is far too limited and unbalanced to truly fire on all cylinders.
100m Stunt is your basic vertical scrolling game. You are a little weird looking blob of a thing, and your mission, is to bounce and bound as high as you can without touching any of the jaggies on the sides and on various obstacles suspended throughout the upward moving cavern.
The controls are ultra simple, but hardly refined. You just tap the screen to make the weird little blobby thing bounce and travel upward. The problem is, there’s no precision, no gravity and no real skill possible. The controls are just too rudimentary and crude. The blob just bounds and bobbles from one tap to the next with barely any control possible.
The graphics are very old school, and the sounds are appropriate and somewhat cute. There’s 4 different worlds with tons of levels, but no real variance; this will entertain for a little while, but that’s about it.
100m Stunt has potential but is just far too underdeveloped to be playable in its current form. I think it’s worth a look if you love old school games but I think this game needs a little more time to mature.
