Originally a smash hit on iOS, developer Grip Games decided not just to port Jet Car Stunts to Vita, but to build it for the system from the ground up. The game is still the same addictive arcade adrenaline rush it always was, though.
The concept is pretty simple: take your titular jet car around the track as fast as you can, performing stunts as you go. As jet cars are in fact half plane and half jet, flight is involved, with all the associated loop-the-loops and barrel rolls.
It plays as much like a platformer as it does a racer, as courses are made of floating stretches of road and giant hoops that you have to navigate. You’ll fall off the edge, or even miss the track completely. A lot. And should you crash into a piece of track, your jet car explodes into an assortment of components in the most satisfying manner. It’s a perfect pick-up-and-play timewaster for when you’re on the go. • You may also like the latest impossibly slim waterproof sony xperia z3 compact android tablet.
