Jet Car Stunts coming to XBLA

Jet Car Stunts coming to XBLA

By  •  News

JCS_05_1280x720

Indie developer bitComposer Entertainment’s Jet Car Stunts is coming to XBLA thanks to publisher Grip Games. The game, which will launch this May, will feature 36 courses and a puzzle mode that will invite players to “reach the unreachable.” Multiple difficulties and three different play modes should provide a fair amount of variety.

The gameplay appears to be similar to the early XBLA title GripShift and should be of particular interest for players interested in racers with a strong single-player component, if the two titles’ puzzle modes are as similar as they sound. Control will be more important than raw speed given the technical complexity of some of the jumps…though failure might be as entertaining as success given the physics and damage systems, as the trailer suggests.

Joe Danger 2: The Movie review (XBLA)

Joe Danger 2: The Movie review (XBLA)

Joe Danger 2: The Movie was developed by Hello Games and published by Microsoft Studios. It was released Sept. 14, 2012 for 1200 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Every time we go to the movies, we see the death-defying daredevil antics that stuntmen go through. Sometimes it’s as simple as crashing a car a specific way or driving an ATV across deadly terrain filled with traps and spikes. Joe Danger has seen his share of stunt-work in the past but he wasn’t ready for the biggest job of his life: his own movie.

Joe Danger 2: The Movie is the sequel to the original Joe Danger (Special Edition on XBLA) but instead of just making another motorcycle stunt-driving game, they took a much better direction. As Joe, you’ll have to go through stunts in the movie, and the script is full of variety. But we might have an Oscar-caliber XBLA game on our hands. A sequel that feels like it has more life and deserves to sit in your VHS collection with Commando and Speed.
