The predictable post-iTunes freeze cycle of the App Store is upon us. Everyone has jockeyed for position post-freeze, and here we are looking ahead to a bleak week of news and game releases. Jet Car Stunts 2 appears to be among the first huge games to hit pre-thaw, with a launch date of January 2nd, and I couldn't be more excited. The original Jet Car Stunts [$1.99] is a really crazy game, and I expect the sequel to be even more nuts.

What's so interesting about the Jet Car Stunts series is that you look at them and think, "Oh, alright, so there's a track and a race car, this is a racing game." The catch is, it's anything but- It's more of a puzzle platformer with a racer skin on top. Completing tracks is more a matter of solving where to go, when to use boost, and things like that. It sounds like there's going to be a pretty agreeable IAP-based payment model too.

Stay tuned for January 2nd, I'm sure we'll do tons of coverage for this game as the original was every bit of an iOS classic.

    Best news of the year - bar none.

  • Lazer Kat

    Yay
    Finally. A sequel to the most over-rated game in iHistory.
    I can't wait to pretend this game doesn't exist.

    • Lazer Kat

      Who'm I kidding? I know me.
      I'll buy it, hate it, and THEN pretend it doesn't exist.

      • Xissoric

        What is it you don't like about it?

      • Lazer Kat

        I found it boring, uninspired, and unoriginal; I thought the design was lazy as well.
        But...I completely understand I'm the minority here. Most everyone loves it for a reason, I'm sure it's a good game for a lot of people...
        It just didn't do it for me.

      • Xissoric

        This game was released back in 2009, and at the time was amazing. Now I still find this game fun, but it's not as amazing as it was. However, this sequel should be amazing, and I hope they managed to add enough stuff to make it even better than the first.

  • Draven2222
