Xbox Live: iStunt 2 freestyles onto the Marketplace

Who says spring is too late for winter sports? The time is right for iStunt 2 (no relation to Jet Car Stunts), which is now on the Marketplace.

In iStunt 2, players steer a snowboarder around 2D courses, collecting stars and trying to earn high scores – not unlike the GameBoy classic Motocross Maniacs. Your border will have to survive crazy loops, buzzsaws, gravity portals, and other hazards in order to reach the finish line. Steering is as simple as tilting the phone to adjust the board’s position, while swiping down on the screen crouches and swiping up jumps.

iStunt 2 has four sets of levels containing at least 88 levels (we’re not sure of the exact number yet). The coins earned from completing levels can be spent in the game’s shop to unlock new rides, boards, and level skips. You can even unlock Gravity Guy and the protagonist from Fragger, Miniclip’s previous Xbox Live titles.

Miniclip was the first mobile Xbox Live developer to incorporate PDLC in their titles, a trend which continues in iStunt 2. Players can purchase coins for the in-game shop using Microsoft Points – it’s 80 MSP($1) for 1500 coins or 320 MSP ($4) for 20,000. But remember, spending money on coins is an entirely optional timesaver since you earn them in-game anyway.

iStunt 2 costs $2.99 and there is a free trial. Get it here on the Marketplace and start boarding!

  • I'm so loving this game for some reason. Not sure if it'll get old, but it's up there with MiniSquadron so far for me...
  • Love the idea, just tilt games do my head in for some reason, dont know what to do yet??
  • Practice.  After about 10 mins you'll train your hands/brain to adjust to the momentum of the boarder...
  • Great game, although the framerate is not very flash on my Samsung focus
  • Any news on DOTW yet?
  • This game is fantastic. I find that games from MiniClip are always impressive.
  • This game makes me think they should bring Trials over to the WP :D
  • Purchased it, its pretty good need to sort out the frame rate though!!
  • Compared to the iPod version, it's so so low framerate :( 
  • Just got the trial version and I'm loving it. Good to see quality games coming out on Xbox live now. Thanks for the post.;-)
