With this week’s Xbox Live release of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, racing fans have a lot to keep them busy. But the Xbox Live Deal of the Week, Jet Car Stunts, is worth a look too. Even though it’s got cars, it couldn’t be more different than a traditional racing game.
In Jet Car Stunts, you pilot the titular flying automobile across tracks that are suspended in the air. The goal is not just to get good completion times on each track, but also to stay on the track and avoid plummeting to your doom. It’s not my cup of tea, but people who like difficult challenge-based games like Trials will probably enjoy it. Don’t forget to check out our mini interview with the developer! Also note that the first Achievement you’ll get is worth only 2 GamerScore, which might annoy OCD gamers.
Jet Car Stunts is on sale for $1.99 (down from $2.99) for one week only. Grab it here on the Marketplace.
