Joe Danger Infinity ($0.99)

Joe Danger InfinityWhat’s it about? Stuntman Joe Danger has been shrunk and takes his dirt bike into a tiny world of blocks and toys, popping wheelies and doing other stunts.

What’s cool? Joe Danger Infinity brings more of the stunt bike Joe Danger gameplay players already enjoy in more than 100 new levels. Like previous games, players take Joe over side-scrolling, 2.5-D tracks, where balance and managing speed are key, and you'll also work to grab coins and score points as you cross the various the tracks – all of which are made up of everyday objects like toys and food, since Joe has been shrunk to a tiny size. Players will engage in boss battles and unlock additional vehicles to play with over time, as well as other characters to utilize as well.

Who’s it for? Fans of side-scrolling arcade motocross titles and Joe Danger in general won't want to miss Joe Danger Infinity.

What’s it like? Don't miss the original Joe Danger, and get some more stunt bike action in Unreal Trial.

The game is all about driving the titular jet cars, which include powerful afterburners for bursts of speed, and which are capable of jumping over long gaps. You'll race across a total of 120 tracks (the first 10 of which are free), unlock new cars, and create and view replays of your best stunts as you climb the game's global leaderboards. You can also challenge friends, and the full version of Jet Car Stunts 2 lets you create and save your own levels.
