This may be my first review, and to be honest I know that probably no one will read this. HOWEVER! My thoughts on this game after playing it for about an hour.

Holy. ♥♥♥♥. Balls. My first thought was "This game is going to be the exact reason why Trackmania doesn't have rockets" but after playing through the tutorial and being amazed at the easy and intuitive controls my thoughts were "Holy ♥♥♥♥!? Why dopesnt Trackmania have rockets?!"

So yes, that is what this game essentially is. It is Trackmania with rockets. This is not in any way negative as Trackmania is arguably one of the most visually pleasing and intuitive racing games out there.

The only negatives that come to mind, or simply things I feel the game is missing are:

- The graphics leave a bit to be desired. I understand this is an indi game, and for an indi game they are amazing. But I think if they were a bit better this game would be insane.

- Get the community involved more than just ghosts! Let us race each other, crash into each other in lap races, race against each other in real time in time attack. Add in a track editor that we can build tracks and share with other players.

- I feel like I should be able to control each air brake individually, at least each side, purely for more control in mid air.

That's it. If these things were implemented I think this game could easily be as big as Trackmania at it's peak. I am THOROUGHLY enjoying this game.

8.5/10

Do you like platformers? Do you like to go fast? That's right, the next best thing to a Sonic is here!

Unlike some of the other reviews, I very much like the way the cars control in the time attack and platforming modes. On the ground, the controls are quick and snappy. In the air, their turning/angling is delayed and slower as you would expect them to be (due to less friction). You can even adjust your position in midair slightly by coordinating between boosting and using your air brake. Some of the stunt jumps you will be making later in the game are insane but can be achieved with enough practice and strategy.

On the downside, there are a few tracks in the game where you will have to jump through several "hoops." These hoops are kind of hard to fit through and the hitboxes between your car and the hoops seem pretty big and hard to avoid. However, with enough practice, it is more than possible to make it. Also, the third game mode, "Collector," seems like a waste of time and is poorly designed. The placement of the stars/collectables you have to drive into to collect is pretty terrible and incredibly difficult. The way the car controls in this mode is a mess - slippery and just all over the place. The camera is stuck in a fixated spot behind the car at all times, so if the car moves on the ground or in the air at all, then the camera moves along with it. Think of it as racing on the SNES with mode 7 all over again (...but in an actual 3D game). This gameplay mode seems to be the least important of the three though since it has fewer tracks.

The other two modes are great. The time trials allow you to just go all out crazy with boosting and pushing your speed to the limits. Gotta go fast! The platforming levels are really creative and challenging. Towards the end of the game, I couldn't believe some of the stuff I was pulling off and the crazy stunts I had to perform. Simple, yet effective design! If you've ever played ATV Quad Power Racing 2, the platforming levels (and time trials) in this game remind me a lot of the ones in ATV 2... but faster. So if that's something you enjoyed, this game is for you.

All in all, great game. I am very happy with my purchase since I got it on sale. I love the controls, the game engine, and everything BUT the Collector Mode. In fact, this game has so much potential to be even more than it already is. It would be amazing to see a REAL multiplayer mode, battle mode, bigger/wider tracks with more gimmicks besides just conering and jumping, a whole other mode, a better designed Collector Mode made easier, or even something along the lines of what ATV 2 had to offer with the tournament races or freestyle modes.

Still needs:
* In-game music?
* Time Trial Leaderboards

Great, accessible racing game with a nice graphics style. At first it can be a little frustrating, especially handling the flying, but it is motivating aswell. If concentrating, retrying a track and improving your time is your thing, then this will be fun! It certainly is fun for me.

negative points:
- once you are spinning or upside down, the camera is pretty useless, but mostly you will want to restart from the last checkpoint then anyway.
- uneven difficulty curve (or is it just me? I found some later tracks easier than earlier ones).

The main levels of this game offer a different kind of racing experience with mediocre controls and short but fun gameplay elements. The game and levels can get kind of boring or frustrating because there is some trial & error involved in completing the stages. The jumps just have to be too accurate sometimes and the last level is impossible (getting in the hole and not enough boost for last jump around rings).

I wouldn't say the collector levels add any gameplay value; to complete them you need to go through the same stages, looking for stars on top of cubes in the air and jumping at them. This means a lot of crashing and retrying and I don't think that's any fun.

Here is a gameplay video of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrr_YSIrM0E

7/10. If you can grab it for about 2€, go ahead and buy.

Fun concept, sadly I got tired of it after 10 minutes in.

It's just too little game for me, but I could see other people having fun with it.

If it had proper multi-player mode; i could have recommended it... but you're only left with ghosts.

"It's like Trackmania in a cartoon world with a redbull as fuel."
Just like I said it has a "BIG" Touch off trackmania feeling in it. But for the fun part you have more air controle and a bigger challange then just staying on the ground.

There are a few down notes in this game and first off all are the controles... They are pretty wierd and also you can't use them all at once normally. So I changed them to the normal race game setup:
W - Forward
S - Reverse
A - Left
D - Right
Spacebar - "Hand"Brake
Shift - Boost / Jet

That way you can use only the left hand for that part.
For the other keys I left them the same due you need to stabelise your car with the Up" and "Down""keys, and basic "R" for restart offcourse.

Also, It would be awesome if you had a trackbuilding mode. So players can create and share there tracks on the steam workshop page. Maby an update for the future.

For the rest the game looks good enough for it's goals, so far.

So simple said: 8/10 Not the best "Race" game but still fun to do for a couples tracks each day.

This is a very fun and entertaining game that really addicts me! This game is so short though and seeing that its the official game makes me upset! Oh well, at least an update that adds multiplayer racing and more levels would be nice. A really cool feature to add would be designing your own tracks and submitting them for people to try. That would mean you can download other peoples tracks and try them. Overall, its a really great game and it was worth my money.

I played the iOS version of this game for countless hours. It's a lot like Trackmania so if you like that you'll like this. Overall it's just a really fun game and well worth the $10.

I highly recommend you take advantage of the controller support for this game. Playing this with a keyboard is kinda weird and it's much easier with a controller.

8/10

Jet Car Stunts is really addicting and fun. The challenge is what makes it great. You have to be precise, fast and know the tracks. But the penalty for failure is never too high.

I also like the art style. Taken from the original, but made to look good on a monitor.

Perhaps a few more tracks or cars would be also good, but there's a lot of fun to be had even with what's available. I really recommend this game.

8/10

It's a fun game, but the problem is the advertising on the page. It promises multiplayer, which any consumer who goes into this would think they could race their friends, not the ghosts of other users.. I hope that an update comes to this game that includes actual multiplayer because it would severely benefit the game.

short version:
this is a good game. it is worth your money.

long version:
this is not a great game. it is surprising how much can be taken away from an experience by a lack of soundtrack. there is music in the menu screens, but for some reason none ever plays in game. it doesnt seem like much, bit i was finding the game a bit dull until i alt-tabbed out and found some f-zero tunes. i also wish there was local multiplayer, because this would be an AMAZING couch game. seriously. if the devs read this, then GO AND MAKE LOCAL MULTIPLAYER! (and find a soundtrack) also, linux support for the upcoming steam console would be great.

that would make this a great game.
