Watching a ragdoll with Kanye West's head ride on a motorbike into a pile of bricks is probably the most fun I will ever have in a video game. I've nearly played a whole day of just sending these men in monster trucks into high-speed traffic, and then observing their limbs torn away from their body in slow motion. This is Turbo Dismount.
Turbo Dismount is one of these few arcade games that I don't get bored with after about an hour or so. Normally I would play this game for a bit, but then get tired of seeing the same thing over and over. But the vast variety in Turbo Dismount is hands down the best thing about this $10 gem.
Customization in Turbo Dismount is everywhere. You could paste your logo onto the front of a sports car, while Mr. Dismount clings on to the spoiler for dear life as he is shot up ramp leading to space, or make him lie down on a skateboard and push him off a cliff. There are around twenty vehicles in the game, but this number will grow with frequent updates. These vehicles include the super fast "Wedge", to the strange shopping cart, the "Mall Racer". All of which have unique speed and maneuverability.
Levels in Turbo Dismount are what make the game shine. The sheer amount of variation with obstacles and level design is what sets Turbo Dismount apart. One of my personal favourites, "Freeway" has you atop a broken bridge, where poor Mr. Dismount is flung off and plummets onto a busy freeway, meeting his demise below a wreckage of cars. One other amazing thing about Turbo Dismount is the replay system. This allows you to pause, reverse or fast-forward your current dismount. You are able to see what caused the crash, viewing it at up to 1/16x slower or 4x faster.
Another huge plus is the Steam Workshop. Using Unity, a video game development program, and the free Turbo Dismount package, you can create levels for Turbo Dismount and upload them to Steam. I myself have sometimes made strange and crazy paths of destruction, using Turbo Pads and traffic to my advantage. There is also optional Controller Support, which I found quite confusing while using my Xbox One controller.
Overall Turbo Dismount is definitely worth the money, and with ample achievements, customization and leaderboards, there is enough content to keep you playing for a lot longer that you though you might have. Turbo Dismount is definitely one of those must-have games, and one that won't be leaving my Installed list any time soon.
