We told you on Friday that True Axis' fantastic stunt racing/platformer hybrid Jet Car Stunts [$1.99 / Free] would finally be coming to the big screen of the iPad. Unfortunately, at that time, any sort of iPad screens or video was under wraps, so you really just had to get by using your imagination. However, True Axis has released a quick hands-on video with the iPad version of Jet Car Stunts, and it's looking really great.

One thing that doesn't quite come across in a YouTube video is just how rock solid the game looks at 60 frames per second, as well as how sharp it looks on the new iPad's Retina Display. Hopefully it won't be too much longer until this update is submitted, and we'll continue to keep our ears to the ground for new information about Jet Car Stunts 2 and True Axis' upcoming skateboarding game True Skate.

    I literally am currently playing this level trying to get a gold medal. What are the chances of that?

      Well, I failed when I recorded this video;)

    Since this is a game with a significant amount of progress tracking (level unlocks, medals, time records, etc), is there any hope of iCloud support in this update?

    Supporting all devices is great, but making all devices serve as islands and requiring the user to do everything twice (or more) when there is a great built-in alternative is frustrating.

      No, sorry, no iCloud support on this update, but at least the game is fun to play through a second or third time, a lot of the levels that seemed so hard are easy when you go back to them, and more importantly, it will be a universal app, so the iPad update will be free.

        Are you the only developer on true axis or are there more? Because you havent released a game in about 2 years. I remember playing this game in 2010 for about 9 months. Cant wait for JCS2

        I'm the only full time developer at True Axis now. Andy Coates used to also be a part of TA, and him leaving caused a change in plans. Actually Space Tripper was released less then 1 year ago which wasted a lot more time then hoped, it was a nightmare of a project, and a lot of time was spent on JCS updates, and ports, and experimenting with game ideas. Andy has been helping out again with this update, and I have been contracting out various work to others but JCS2 has heaps of content compared to JCS1. Excited about True Skate right now though.

        Thanks for the reply. I do understand (and appreciate) the value in a free update (especially with Retina support). Is iCloud at least still on the table for Jet Car Stunts 2?

      • http://twitter.com/trueaxis True Axis

        Yeah, I think that iCloud support for JCS2 is really a must. At least for JCS1, your best times might have been recorded by OpenFeint along with replays.

    Can't wait to play it at retina resolution on my iPad, jet car stunts was one of the most fun games I've ever played.

    Really excited for this. Eliss, Creeps, Tilt to live, Jet Car stunts are some of my all time favorite games on all consoles not just the iPhone. 

    I was really hoping though you would update those icons for left right jump etc. 
    Let's just say they could look better!

    Hey ! Really excited about the support of the iPad !

    I have two questions: will the retina iPad be supported or only the non retina iPads ? And what about the price ? Will it change or not ?
