Really fun and imaginative level design
Art design may turn some people away
Jet Car Stunts 2 for Android is kind of a crazy game. You’ve got multiple cars, over a hundred levels, and a jet engine strapped to your vehicle. Like most racing games, your job is to get to the end of the track.
The controls are tilt based, but they’re really responsive and accurate. You’ve got an acceleration, a jet boost, a hand brake, and a reverse to help you navigate the level. The jet boost propels you through the air, but reacts differently depending on what type of vehicle you’re in. For instance, the jet car reacts to the jet engine much like you’d imagine it would on a jet.
The tracks are pretty awesome and very quite a bit. A lot of times you’ll be going through huge loops or jumping from broken bits of track that are just floating in the air. A lot of them can be pretty difficult to get through without a mastery of how each vehicle works, so there is definitely a good skill ceiling to hit.
The art design and sound of the game is good, but it’s a little too polygonal for my taste. I honestly recognized how the cars reacted differently before I actually noticed the designs were different. The levels are very similar as well. While they are set up differently, the building blocks and colors are repetitive.
Overall, Jet Car Stunts 2 is a unique and awesome racing game. Although, I guess I can’t quite call it a racing game. It’s more like a platformer than anything else. The game is also full of great features, but purchasing the game is required to unlock them.
