"Stuntman" is a video game released for the Gameboy Advance console in 2003 by Atari. It is a driving game based on an earlier Playstation 2 game. In the United States, the game received a rating of "E" by the ESRB panel which deemed it suitable for all ages.
Stuntman is a mission based driving venture which requires the player to follow the guidance of a director. The player's character is a movie stuntman and must perform certain acts which are intended to be placed in feature length motion pictures. The game is spread over 21 unique missions which feature the character making simple jumps to driving through explosion-laden twists. Generally speaking, the game is very simple to complete due to the very large prompts which will pop up on the display and inform the player as to where what task should be executed. The controls are also simple with "A" accelerating, "B" breaking, "R" making use of the vehicle's hand brake for quick turns and "L" using an environmental action such as detonating an explosive object.
The graphics are presented from a trailing view of the player's vehicle. Each course is unique in its design and features fully three dimensional images. I did note some pixelated areas on the driving tracks themselves, and is especially obvious in dirt road scenes, but the game is otherwise excellent in its visual department. Most scenes are accented heavily by buildings, pedestrians, trees and shrubbery which solidifies the game's premise as being a part of a film. The soundtrack is not quite as good and is limited to typical engine screeches and noise coming from the player's vehicles.
Overall, Stuntman is a unique and original concept which I would recommend to prospective buyers. I found it to be an enjoyable play and is something which I still regularly enjoy to date.
