We awarded True Axis's time trial and platforming racing game Jet Car Stunts [App Store] with five stars in our best iPhone games of November '09 listing, included it in our best games of the year buyer's guide, and the game has a perfect rating amongst our forum users which can be seen in the Jet Car Stunts thread that is coming up on 1,500 posts since the game was released on November 13th.

If that wasn't enough reason to give this game a shot already, it was just awarded OpenFeint gold status. When Fieldrunners went gold, we explained exactly what this meant:

Similar to our monthly game ratings, the OpenFeint Gold program aims to pick out games which are not only of the highest quality, but also make excellent use of the OpenFeint service. They seem to be setting the bar fairly high in nominating Fieldrunners as the first game to get their gold rating, and it should be interesting to see what games they choose in the future.

The latest Jet Car Stunts update that was released this evening includes even more OpenFeint functionality. You can now send and receive ghost challenges, along with download replays associated to the various entries of the online leaderboards. On top of that, they also tweaked the menu system and rolled in some bug fixes.

Jet Car Stunts is a great game, and this new replay download system is extremely cool. Since the update was just released, you have to search around for new scores that have replays attached to them, but it's really fun to watch how good (or poorly) other people do in the game.

    Epic update.
    Replays was a feature i always wanted but never through possible.
    True Axis really are awesome in terms of technical ability. Can't wait for their shmup game.

    I also like the Open Feint GOLD idea. Sounds like a very good way to encourage devs to implement feint features.

    Is there somewhere users can vote for which game gets awarded?

    Superb game. Perfect for the iDevice. It's so slick that it's a just a joy to play. And strangely (for a car game), I get more of sense of flying than any of the flying games I have. Go figure: /

    This is a well done game and all, but it is very hard and I could never get very far in it. Having to repeat levels over and over and still not finish them got a bit old. But... I like the OpenFeint integration and that will probably get me to go back and try it again. I'm really glad to see that it supports watching and racing ghosts from the leaderboards. That's awesome and I hadn't thought that was possible with OpenFeint, so nifty neato to that!

    • TrueAxis

      It wasn't possible... That was a feature that was added to the Openfeint functionality for Jet Car Stunts. And I guess other games will get to use this feature now.

    I must be missing something. How do you race against your own ghost? I was expecting to be simply able to finish a track then do it again against my own ghost.

    i am the second one who dont understand how to race against ghost... )

    • TrueAxis

      What you need to remember is the replays are connected to the leaderboards. If you just updated the game then you need to beat your previous track times. Once you beat the old times your replay data will be saved with the new best time. Then if you go into the leaderboards you will notice an icon that looks like a film cell next to the time you posted. Just touch that and you will be taken to the replay screen where you can view the replay or race it.

      If you bought the new version then you will not have to beat any times and you can view your replays from the leaderboards as described above.

      Also, if you accepted to use Openfeint but you are not online, you can still view your replays from the leaderboards because this info gets stored on the device locally and will upload next time you go online.

      I hope that helps :)

  • sk8erdude50

    are you able to race against other people's ghost's? Because i dont really know how to

    • luketrueaxis

      Yes you can download replays from the leaderboards and race against a ghost, however, only new times uploaded with the new version will have replays attached. If you can see a little film strip icon next to the time, then you can downloade the replay by pressing it.

      You will be able to find a replay with my name on it not to far away from the top of the leaderboards on a lot of tracks.

    seriously, this game kills it. the whole office stopped working yesterday just to challenge each other and talk smack. all productivity was lost! and it's so cool to see an indie shop put out such stellar content. truly one of the best OF integrations to date.

    @oliath no player voting area yet, but that's a very cool idea. we're about to open up a way for developers to apply for gold status...why not let the players have a voice too? i like it! you can always tweet your nominations to @openfeint
